The guillocheur

Guilloché work, or engine-turning as it’s sometimes known, is a form of mechanized decoration. Over the centuries, guillocheurs have used many different types of hand-operated lathe, adapting them to suit the task or to give fuller expression to their artistry and technique. By turning two crankhandles simultaneously, the idea is to guide the cutting tool so that it carves fine grooves into a metal surface in repetitive geometric patterns. There are two main types of lathe: the so-called straight line engine and the rose engine.
