The following articles by Robert Charleston discuss early engraving equipment and techniques -- but not specifically diamond point engraving:

Charleston, Robert. "Wheel-Engraving and -Cutting: Some Early Equipment, I: Engraving." Journal of Glass Studies, v. 6, 1964, pp. 83-100, ill.

Charleston, Robert. "Wheel-Engraving and -Cutting: Some Early Equipment, II: Water-Power and Cutting." Journal of Glass Studies, v. 7, 1965, pp. 41-54, ill.

Please send your postal mailing address and I would be happy to send copies of these articles to you.

There are many books that discuss engraving techniques -- you found several of the best ones. I attached our bibliography for engraving glass and diamond point engraving for your information.

So far, in skimming materials, I haven't come up with a specific answer to your question.

If you wish to obtain copies of any of the items in our list, please contact your local library. The Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use.
