Flush Setting - Trouble Shooting

At the Metalsmith Academy, we love chatting over in the forums and helping out solve problems.  We created this short video series to cover all the questions our students asked whilst taking our flush setting class.  Believe it or not this isn’t the whole class (what can I say – we want to make sure you get it)!

FYI - there are 2 videos on this page - don't miss the second one!
