The need for precise tools has never been greater. 3D rendered, grown and cast jewelry is the trend of the future. Although the technology is constantly improving, it does not produce the kind of fine detail most jewelers and artists require. Cleaning up growth lines, perfecting finishes, working in ever-tighter spaces – it’s a combination of new challenges and old problems that become more difficult.
Now you can apply the power and control of the EnSet to filing and finishing small, tight places. Quickly remove growth lines and finish hard to reach places without changing the shape or look of intricate jewelry. Polish the inside and outside of complex settings. In the video series above, Tira shows you how to assemble and tune the EnSet Finishing Hand Piece to achieve your desired effects
The key is the EnSet Finishing Hand Piece’s low torque, adjustable speed and stroke length. When used with Glardon® Vallorbe mini steel or ceramic files, the hand piece can reach tough places in tight spaces. Mini files come in familiar shapes and are made from the same tool steel as Vallorbe’s classic files. Ceramic files come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and they can be further shaped using common diamond wheels.
Together, these tools give jewelers, setters, hand engravers and other artists the ability to reach tough spots and work with complex modern pieces. In today’s hyper-competitive market, these tools can give artists an edge to distinguish their work, take less time doing it, and keep up the price points that enable them to do the things they love.

Their Single-Strike Action and foot pedal speed controls give jewelers, setters and engravers a level of precision and control that is unrivaled by other tools. When combined with the EnSet Hand [...]
