FWIW I'd have thought that would be best with a burr rather than a grinding wheel. No experience of it, but I'd have thought grinding something as soft as pewter would be hopeless.

Yes Dave, I was thinking of one of those fluted metal cutters as shown in my link. Might be a bit dangerous to use though? See http://www.tool-shop.co.uk/Dremel/Acces ... +of+2.html

Ah yes! That as well! (I hadn't followed the link and assumed it was just to the Dremel itself) :-)
As you say could be dangerous though. unless the workpiece was held down somehow.

Failing the use of power tools I'd have thought that a sort of cross between a knife and an engineer's scraper, with small heavy blade, and a nice chunky handle might be as good as anything. Haven't got a clue if anything like that is made though.
