Using the plate roll

It is ready at last, I found the time to make some experiments with my plate roll.

A piece of sheet silver will be rolled several times, with interstage annealing, until it is thin enough to get crinkled with a gripper.

next is to roll once more very careful, then I have sheet silver again, but crinkled.
To solder the cut pieces took me quite a bit time, because the brazing solder decided to have an independent existence and to play hide and seek with me.
At least I got them all at the right place.
After brazing, before cleaning....
...after cleaning, before filing, sanding and polishing.... I really love this phase, that rough surface, the texture looks interesting...
