Hi, I'm new to Dremel and eager to begin using it in my jewelry projects.  I buy old sterling silver charm bracelets for resale and many of the bracelets I buy have engraved charms--wedding dates, high school graduation dates, etc.  I'd like to remove these marks because the charms are virtually worthless for resale with the engraved inscriptions.

What's the best way to do this with my Dremel?

Also, has anyone started a jewelry forum for Dremel users? I see lots of woodworking projects discussed and miscellaneous others, but very few about jewelry.

Hi VSA and welcome to the fourm. We don't have a jewelery fourm but most post it here.

Now for getting off those nasty monograms. First I would use a 1/4" sanding band #430 with the #446 240 grit sanding band. If this don't work use the heavier grit bands till you get close then use the 240 grit band. The other two grits are #431 60 grit and the #438 120 grit bands.

Hi VSA

Welcome to the forum. I suspect you will want to remove all the sanding marks so be sure to have an abrasive buff wheel and felt polishing wheels handy. Doug has some good instructions on polishing in some other posts, which are several pages back by now.
