Hey guys I'm looking for aftermarket case backs that are sterile ( not ground down OEM ones) I need some with enough "meat" on them to do some relief engraving .
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Sorry I should've noted that , 7s26 or 6309 will do.

That's good info john thanks !so if one were to grind down until the "waves" were gone and was left with an absolute flat case back , do you think it could then be used to engrave another design ?

I see no reason why not, depends on the depth you are going to engrave to.

I think the when flat should be at least 1.00mm of material.
