Todays work waiting to go in the tumbler and get a polish. Both custom requests. The 2 Shekel is probably the hardest material I have cut.

More amazing work @nh587!

Very interesting--when you say that it is the "hardest" material, do you mean that literally, or is this alloy more gummy than others so while not hard, it is difficult to machine?

I broke two drill bits just putting the pilot holes in. Normally I get two to three coins before I wear out a saw blade, this one took four blades. Its extremely hard.
