      This video is on Pen ruling machines , not wood engraving
      machines.-I've it somewhere.
      Yes, if you can output high enough you can emulate a woodengraving to a
      certain degree in polymer plate.
      But the making of the plate needs absolute tight control and
      calibrated equipment.
      But than a Lute making Friend of mine used to be a wood engraver of the
      OUP in the 40 and 50's.
      His stuff -first yoou think there Lithos (stone), the lines are so
      fine, the colors so transparent, I've seen his blocks,
      and haven't seen anything cut that fine since.
      He passed more than a Decade ago - I'm a woodengraver on a much smaller
      scale and inherited some of his tools.
