I offer 3 types of wheels that can be used for intaglio. For the intaglio, the most useful wheel is the "specific intaglio" one. For a mixed use of relief and intaglio, you can consider the reinforced wheel (but it is much less pleasant for the intaglio). For large format plates the maxi roulette brings a different gesture (size of a hammer handle)

- The "specific intaglio" roulette are designed for all small to medium-sized burrs, allowing you to work on gray or black surfaces (diamond bits marking the plate with many small points), or hatching (small to medium size). These tips make very precise marks on the plate. With this wheel you can also occasionally use the larger size carbide-tipped burrs available here

- The "strengthened roulette" are similar to the previous ones, with reinforced bearings. The mechanism has a little more inertia, and is designed to be used with all carbide tipped burrs. These b urrs make textures more marked and random than the specific intaglio tips. With this wheel you can also use all the tips of the previous wheel, but it "rolls" less easily (you can't use with 1mm ball burrs).

- The maxi wheels are of much larger dimensions (handle approximately 20cm, weight approximately 500gr), designed to work in savings size or intaglio on larger format plates. The size and weight of the handle gives a lot more strength. Prefer the "ball" tips for relief print and "flame" for intaglio. Please note, for customers outside France, the weight of the tools means that the shipping costs are higher than for other tools.
