They are used but new to GNGR. SHERLINE Milling press and lathe with 100's of attachments. A new custom order will be created on the Milling press. A very large pendant that is to big for our casting flask will be created with these machines. The mill and lathe can cut and etch within 1/1000th of an inch. Using solid bars or hammered down ingots we can cut logos or art and etch right into the silver at set depth.

Our first order is for a 4 ounce pendant 2" x 3 1/2" tall. The art will be etched into the silver shaped pendant 1MM below the surface and then all hand enameled.

The lathe below has attachments to hold rings to add grooves allowing us to add colors, wood, stones and other materials to offer high end wedding and engagement rings in sterling silver and 14k gold.

Casting shrinks the metal very little but enough to have issues when inserting a fixed width decoration (gold wire in a silver ring, Wood or stones that have to fit perfectly. We just cast the ring solid and on the lathe we cut groves within 1/1000th of an inch accuracy.
