missing information, sleepy to watch.
pretty boring, he talked about one of the benefits countersinking a stone is so the solder would flow in it? WHAT? pretty sure that was a mistake . I also wanted to hear what size tubing he used to set the stone, he used a 1.8 drill bit, was it slightly smaller than the tube? no mention of the tube size? did i miss it?

Excellent video
Michael was excellent at explaining how to create a stone on stone setting. I appreciated the detail and I learned a few new tips on how to solder and to create an even edge on a bezel before soldering. He is a pleasure to watch and I learned a lot. Thank you Michael for a great training video! Review by Yvonne (Posted on 10/9/2017)
Very well done
It was so good that I wish it had been longer and included even more examples. Review by Nancy (Posted on 4/29/2016)
I'm very sorry but this was so boring. Wish I hadn't spent the 9 bucks or the 45 minutes watching.
I hate to write negative things but also really rely on reviews so felt the need to say something. A great deal of time is spent in watching him sand, push the bezel, mix epoxy etc. Things that are terribly uninteresting to watch and do not provide much education.

One of the best teaching videosI have ever watched.

Outstanding 5 + stars
Thank you Michael Boyd for an outstanding video. Excellent step by step teaching method. I look forward to more of your videos. Review by Laura (Posted on 5/21/2014)
This video is fantastic. I felt I got my money's worth in the first 15 minutes with a different take on soldering bezels that I had not seen before and will incorporate into my work.

All of this can be done with equipment I already own. Michael explains and demonstrates thoroughly. It is easy to understand and follow the steps. I feel I can walk into my studio and replicate the steps after watching the first time. Excellent instructor and excellent video. Highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant! Far exceeded my expectations with in-depth hints and tips.
Wow! I found this video to be highly informative and it greatly exceeded my expectations with in-depth explanations, tips and tricks. I had been hoping for over 3 years that I would find a dvd on Michael's 'Stone on Stone Setting". Thank you Michael. Review by Bronwyn (Posted on 5/17/2014)
