Timascus Update: cutting the timascus with a diamond tool
Long story short, as Josh reports from Brookvale:
"No-one has ever cut timascus with a diamond, and that's what we are doing here- using diamond tools to make timascus perfectly flat. How flat? Below 1 micron over the length of 45mm flat bar. When we first reported this to machining community, some struggled to comprehend and accept or results. That was quickly 'sorted out' once the flatness of the machined bar was confirmed with digital measuring probe with resolution of 0.1 micron."
We have three videos on the link below, each just a few seconds in length, of measuring, light reflection on a lapped Timascus 3/4 bridge, and actual diamond cutting.
