Plastic crystal- A small brass. Also in thrift stores. Are many small wooden bowls. And wood things that make. Good punches and some are. Shown in the picture I have. Found that work on certain jobs.

Dents are being removed from. A nickel silver 16 size back. With small round deep dents. And general all over ripples. And a crease in an 18 size nickel. Case is the same operation but. Some gold filled is hardened. And works just like nickel and. Some is soft and stretches. And makes a bump instead of. Springing back so for each. Hit you get a new bump if you. Hit to hard, like later 992b s. Similar: Some silver cases are. Soft and thick and some are. Brittle and can crack if hit to. Often, hitting silver hardens it. Also and makes it brittle. The 16 size case back is full. Of ripples and deep dents and. Took a lot of hits all over and. Over and came out pretty good. But I had to use emery paper. To smooth it off and a buffer. With rouge and wax for a. Lubricant to smooth it out and. Then the fine ruby impregnated. Paper to take the swirl marks. Out by making finer marks but. In a straight line not swirls or. What is called a butler back f. You have to want a case. To take this much time to do. This- say an hour. The 18 size back with the. Ripple took 4 hits with the. Small iron stake, plastic crystal. In between it and back and. Plastic crystal broke a few. Small pieces off but crease. Came out nicely, then rub with. Bronze wool inside case back. And remove marks and looks. Harder: as you cannot buff or. Grind out the signs of hitting. Dents but can clean the inside. Case back up nicely, so be. Careful on chrome cases, hit. To hard and it stays that way. Unless your thumbs can press. It back a little in place. Practice makes nice work. And you feel good.
