    Thanks for sharing the video. I really enjoyed watching this. 
    Just as an aside, I see people paying hundreds of pounds on eBay for 15th and 16th century silver coins where the date is hardly even visible. I am not comparing these two items, but I would suggest that the relationship between buyer and seller/producer is the most important and if there is trust and integrity, no issues should arise.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, it shows you have integrity as a seller and really care about the products that you make and sell.
    Also really interesting to learn more about casting metals, which is something I would like to try myself in the future.

    What better way to spend a sunny bank holiday Monday attempting my first ever Hand Pour
     
    I decided that I was going to attempt a tiny 7.77grams ( 1/4 oz) of .925 scrap jewellery to see how it melted , how my pouring techniques was and if my cheap and cheerful hand torches were up for the task 
    well   I can report the following
    I need more practice much much more practice
    I need a furnace ( with my birthday coming up in may I will be treating myself to one)
    I had lots of fun in my 5 attempts 
    so although  did not manage to get a full 1/4 ounce bar I did manage to get a 4.20 Gram bar  which it may be small  but I am rather happy with it for my first day of trying to pour 
    I have posted a few wee pics below of my exploits and result hope you like and I look forward to learning and practicing more
