  1. After the popularity of the "Today I bought.." and "Today I received" Threads I thought perhaps people could upload pictures of things they have made/poured/cast. I thought I'd kick it off with this 9ct Gold bangle I made today...
  2. Fill a Tupperware container with water and freeze it, leave it to defrost in front of a fan, hey presto air conditioning!
  3. @Trumar I need to do some work to the wire lugs and the dial redoing but it will look brilliant when it's finished.
  4. my watch maker offered me an absolute steal on this 1930s Silver omega trench watch, most likely an officer's. Couple of hairline cracks on the dial but I shall be getting it repair by a guy over in the states.
  5. I use acid testing for un-hallmarked jewellery all the time, cooksongold or other jewellery supplies have acid testing kits that would be more than suitable. I use a small abrasive "Buff Stick" which takes the plating layer off. one thing I would say is to wash the acid off with soda to neutralise before washing with water, acid remnants can leave nasty burns.

  8. for sale

    Absolute bargain.
  9. To be fair it would allow you to have a gold bar at a fraction of the cost of 22ct or 24ct.
  10. @kimchi To be honest I'm at the point where I just need to have a glance, if something doesn't feel right I just check it out further, some faked are genuine 9ct chain ends with a base metal chain but with close inspection you can tell. There's also a lot of heavy brass rings that are stamped 750, usually Mercedes style and similar. it's important to know as if you're wrong you lose money at the end of the day.
  11. @Investor1989 If you make the right contacts you can get 9ct scrap/ jewellery for very good prices, you may even get lucky and buy under scrap. I'm surprised more people don't buy it because it is gold at the end of the day.
