GRS Engraving Blocks

GRS Standard Engraving Block

Hold your work securely for a lifetime. GRS standard engraving

blocks are USA made by GRS from solid steel. They have nonglare

satin chrome and black jaws to eliminate eye strain from unwanted

reflections. Block weight is 19 lbs. 25% more than other “look-alike”

blocks. Perfect for engraving, stone setting and similar handwork.

You’ll automatically produce higher quality work by holding it in

this maneuverable vise. Rotational resistance is fully adjustable for

“fine tuning” the block to your working style.

GRS Magnablock

For those who work on big pieces, or simply want the world's best.

The GRS Magnablock rewards you with unmatched quality, strength

and convenience. Two industrial ball bearings PLUS a large roller

thrust bearing totally eliminate wear and looseness for the full life

of the block. Jaws are hardened steel with and exclusive rebuildable

thread system. Magnablock weighs 30 Ibs.; ship weight 33 lbs.4

GRS Positioning Vise/Block

This unique block has many Magnablock similarities and one huge

difference: you can reposition its center of rotation. By pulling the

release lever you can slide the upper half of the block until your work

is centered. This makes this block perfect for use under a microscope

because it allows you to keep your work in the field of view as you

rotate the block. With a traditional engraver’s block, this only happens

when the work is near the center of the jaws. Often, this becomes an

impossible limitation. The Positioning Vise/Block lets you move the

center of rotation by simply pulling the lever. In seconds you can

reposition your work to rotate within the microscope’s field of view.

The GRS Positioning Vise/Block has other advantages as well, since its

massive 42 lbs. weight can provide even more stability for your work.

GRS Engraving Blocks

GRS Low Profile Vise/Block

Some work needs a lower vise height. The Low Profile model offers

GRS strength and quality in a shorter model. A popular use is under

a microscope where the low profile helps many people find a more

comfortable working position since microscopes have to be 6” to

7” away from the work.

The GRS Low Profile Vise/Block has the same jaw size and capacity

as the Magnablock, yet is 1-1/2” shorter.

The GRS Low Profile Vise/Block is also pictured on the optional heavyduty

turntable base. By locking the Low Profile Vise/Block from turning,

you can use the turntable for work rotation. This combination lets you

move the work’s center of rotation like the Positioning Vise/Block. The

10” diameter turntable is made from 4.5mm thick steel with a large ball

bearing system underneath. Shipping weight for Low Profile Vise/Block

is 30 lbs.

GRS Multi-Purpose Vise

This high-quality vise shares the GRS BenchMate “lift on/lift off" mounting

system. Now you can switch from Bench Pin to BenchMate to this

precision vise in seconds without tools. You will love working with this

vise because it’s located right in front of you at bench level. It adjusts

to any angle by tilting and rotating on two axes. This flexibility reduces

your fatigue and adds efficiency. This GRS Multi-Purpose Vise can use

the 30-piece attachment set for GRS Engraving Blocks for easy work

holding. This set includes GRS Leather-Faced Ring Clamps for secure

ring work. To use this 30-piece attachment set, you need optional

GRS Power Hone

GRS Diamond Power Hone

H

You don’t need to own a GRS power tool to appreciate the GRS

diamond power hone. Anyone who does engraving or stone setting

and needs to keep their gravers sharp will love the diamond power

hone because it makes it so easy to keep those edges perfectly

sharp and true.

The diamond power hone rotates at a fixed RPM of 240, allowing

you to sharpen your gravers by hand or with the use of a graver

sharpening fixture without heat build up. Gravers are sharpened

quickly, and it’s a snap to produce beveled edges and precise cutting

angles that would be near impossible to do on a stone by hand. The

GRS Diamond Power Hone can be used for a variety of operations,

including watch crystal grinding, stone polishing, and wax carving.

The GRS diamond power hone comes standard with one 600-grit

diamond wheel and has a variety of optional accessories to make

polishing and grinding jobs fast and easy. Shipping weight is 8 lbs.

Dual Angle Sharpening Fixture

The dual angle sharpening fixture holds a wider variety of tools and

adjusts to more angles than any other fixture. With TWO degree dials,

you can set the elevation angle and the rotation angle of each tool.

Now every graver surface can be precisely sharpened. As with all

GRS products, this fixture is beautifully made with hardened steel for

accuracy and a long life. It holds all sorts of tools, with or without

handles, and the GRS quick-change (QC) holders. To use the full range

of this fixture, you should have the fast change wheel.

Quick Change Sharpening Fixture

The new Quick Change Sharpening Fixture lets you transfer tools from

any quick change handpiece directly to the quick change sharpener in

two seconds. This Quick Change Sharpening Fixture has an advanced

angular adjustment system. First, it has a elevation dial for setting the

face and heel angles you want. Next, a calibrated rotary dial on the front

of the fixture. This lets you rotate the tool around its longitudinal axis

for creating any special angle you can imagine. But the best feature is

hidden from view! Not only does the front dial rotate to any angle, it

has built-in detente every 45° (8 detente total). You simply “click” to

these preset angles when sharpening square gravers, flat gravers and

similar common tools. This means every tool face is sharpened without

removing the tool from the fixture. It’s fast, accurate and repeatable.

Gravers

Otto Frei stocks a wide selection of brands and types of jeweler’s gravers. Choose from Swiss made Grobet

gravers in both regular carbon steel or high speed steel or American made E. C. Muller gravers in carbon steel. We also

offer the new pre-cut HSS gravers from GRS with tangs pre-ground to fit the GRS quick change handles and cutting

edges shaped and polished ready to engrave. Whichever brand you choose, Otto Frei will always give you the largest

possible selection and choice.

Buying Tip

Insist on Genuine Grobet Gravers

Swiss made Grobet gravers are recognized as the best quality gravers you can buy.

The Swiss have long mastered the art of tempering steel and the finest craftsmen

in the world use their files and gravers. Often copied but never equaled, insist on

genuine Grobet Gravers. Grobet gravers are proudly marked with the trademark.

Please Note

Grobet gravers and E.C. Muller gravers have slightly different size standards.

Please note that when a metric size is showed on the graver charts below, it is

for the Grobet graver only, (measured at its thickest point), and that the Mueller

graver will not be that exact thickness.

Onglette

Onglette (or point) gravers are used for curved designs and fine lines. Onglette gravers are also very popular for stone setting.

Understanding Liner Gravers

Defined by widths of cutting edges and

number of lines graver will cut at one

stroke. The “width” refers to the size of

the lines and the space between them

and is shown in the width chart below.

To determine the size of the liner, use

the width chart to find the size of the

distance between lines and multiply by

the number of lines.

Graver Handles

Classic wood graver handles are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. We have several popular shapes that are

imported from France, the rest are imported from India. To fit gravers you may choose from several different methods.

One method is when you heat up the tang of the graver and then press the graver into the guide hole of the graver

handle. The red hot tang burns a perfect fit into the handle. Another method is to use a drill to slightly open up the

guide hole in the graver handle and then grind the tang of the graver into a point to fit into the graver. Using a wood

block to protect the tip of the graver, you then hammer the graver tang into the graver handle.

Inside Ring Engraving Machines

The Elma Ringstar

The Elma Ringstar has many advantages over the basic dial

type inside ring engraver. It uses the same engraving type

that flat engravers use, with a wide variety of type styles to

choose from. Since the letters are held in a type holder, it

becomes very easy to see exactly where the engraving will go

and whether or not the message to be engraved will fit inside

the ring before you start engraving. Perhaps most importantly,

you can adjust the size of the engraving to go inside the ring

from 1mm tall to up to 3mm tall, a feature that the fixed dial

type engravers can only wish for. The Elma Ringstar includes

one free set of single line script type. The Elma Ringstar is

made in Germany and measures 6-5/8” D x 13-5/8” W x

17-3/4” H. Shipping weight is 15 lbs.
