  1. A regular hacksaw to rough cut and files to shape.a number 6 will work ,but the number of broken blades and time involved is not worth it. Recommended blade size link https://www.firemountaingems.com/resources/encyclobeadia/charts/771x

    Push engravers and hammer and chisel for under $200 to start with and see if you like the technique.No point in spending 2 thousand for something you might not enjoy.
  4. Have you checked http://www.engraverscafe.com/forumdisplay.php?1-Hand-Engraving-Forum Like Lindsey's forum it is full of info and advice and the members use all types that are good.

    Did you check the ingredients of the "white out" ? A number of brands do not contain the titanium dioxide for it to be a release agent.

    Brass/bronze mokume finishing

    Polishing is the worse thing you can do to mokume, a satin finish is much better to see the contrast of materials ..... https://contenti.com/polishing-n-finishing/buffing-wheels/satin-finish-wheels/2-3-ply-satin-finish-wheels There is nothing I know to "seal" it,maybe a little olive oil after washing.
