Bank Holiday Monday First attempt at Hand Pouring

Recommended Posts

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 :D

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

@BackyardBullion I wish I could work from my kitchen!! 


Great Job on 5 attempts!!👍👍👍👍👍

Remember Not to put anything but .925 in that crucible now. 




Yip Only. 925 in that crucible and mold and new ones will be ordered when I start on. 999 but. 925 will be my practice until I am way way more experienced 


Kitchen is only place I have would love a dedicated workshop /studio but don't ever see that happening so kitchen it is 😏
