You'll do fine mate.
Up for a second challenge Lucky
Hmmmmm? Pouring silver like making a cappuccino, I hadn’t thought of that Ill try it and see what happens
I might have to quit my day job ha ha
The work bench in flames is quite impressive!
You've probably already thought about a fire-proof surface.
Firebricks are very expensive, I had an old wood heater that was lined with
damaged firebricks so I replaced them but not with firebricks.
Clay pavers do the trick, they take a lot of heat and may be the ticket as an interim
fix; easy to replace a few as well.
Just do not try drinking it
I am really looking forward to you getting your stamp and smashing things out
great pours once again lucky, looking sweet.
It'll really start to elevate the pours when you get that custom stamp Bring things to a whole new level.
Yeah I have fire bricks but found when ever silver splashed out of the mold it would stick to the brick and contaminate the silver. When any splashed silver lands on the wood it just turns into a clean ball.
I’m actually going to put a piece of granite on the bench instead and see how that goes
^^^Thanks for the info regarding why.
If you wanted to get more ripples in the silver a cheap electric air pump
or similar small engine bolted to the timber might provide nice patterns. ???
Yeah I thought about that but something I haven’t tried yet which I’ve seen work well is to wave the blow torch flame back and forwards over the cooling metal to create some nice ripples and swirls
Hopefully try it tonight
Have you tried to refine 925 silver?
great video again Lucky
Do you mean 925 refined to 999? No haven’t tried that. Watched some people do it on YouTube but that’s another game altogether.
Would be cool to melt some 925 though into a bar.
some nice ripples there
My stamp should arrive soon and I’ll start banging out some FIREBIRD BULLION bars!!
That is a seriously nice piece there, love the ripples
