Below is a video about shaping the Anvil Points in Foredom kit AK101, the 6-piece Anvil Point Kit.
Metalsmith, jeweler and educator Melissa Muir and explains why and demonstrates how to shape and polish Foredom Anvil Points in Kit AK101. She demonstrates that by using files and abrasive papers the anvil points can be shaped in various ways. Anvil Points are hammering accessories for hammer handpieces H.15 and H.15D which are powered by flex shafts and the micromotor hammer handpiece H.MH-110 (in Kit K.1080). They are used in stone setting, texturing and detail work in metal.
