1  The Gathering / Introductions / Hello again on: September 14, 2021, 10:12:56 am
I just wanted to take some time to say hello again. I haven't  had any contact in quite some time. I've had a few bumps along the road, some highs and some lows also. Things are looking better and are smoothing out, so I see better times ahead.
  Looking around the forum I see I've got a lot of reading to catch up on. Anyway, I'd like to say hello to everyone and to let everyone know it's time for me to start picking everyone's brain again. I hope everyone's happy, healthy and doing what makes you, you!

I agree with Jake. I remember them. I even tried to use one. They were very hard to use. The paint they used was very thick, almost as thick as printer ink.

Glad to see you posting again Mark. I'm still looking for brains to pick.

Good info Rocks2dust. I think I'll just buy my stuff from Rio or another source. Don't think it will be worth the headache. Not selling anything but I want to be as honest as I can about what I'm doing. Thanks

If I were to use 90% coin silver to make a piece, how would I hallmark the piece? If I am correct sterling is 92% and the coin material is 90%, then stamping it 925 would not be correct.  Should I just not stamp it at all? The reason I'm asking is I have a chance to pick up some coin silver at a pretty decent price. I'm not real concerned about it as everything made would be given away as gifts, but I would like it to be marked correctly.

If you want pictures of anything just type the name of what you're looking for into images on your Google search page and you will be surprised what pops up.

Being a old fart myself I totally agree with Steve and Gary. Just keep Mom's champagne glass full and she's going to have a great time, and thank you for your efforts in the end.

It's the back. So 24 gauge would be the size to buy. Thanks!! I'm sure am glad you guys are around to keep me on the right track.

I'm getting ready to order some sterling sheet metal for making pendent bezels. I've researched many of the Silversmithing sites, but it seems that everyone has their Own preferences as to what  gauge they prefer. Is there a gauge that is a good all round application or does bezel size determine the gauge? What is your preference? I don't want to waste money buying something I can't use.

I've read some good advice in the posts, and have only two things to add. First pocket your pride and get an early start while the banks or mortgage companies will still deal with you.

I retired about 14 years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. You'll probably miss some things about working such as the structured time, but that passes pretty quick. I know I have never looked back. But the Honey-Do-List will be waiting for you. My advise is to move as slowly as you can get away with because the faster you work the longer the list seems to get. It's the same as working " time management".

Steve, now that was a good one... I'm with you just steal a taxi.

From our house to yours, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Remember to go light on the punch until after you set off the fireworks. Don't forget to your black-eyed peas, fried cabbage and ham on New Years day for good luck. Let me know if it works for you because I've been trying for years and the best luck I've had was not getting indigestion.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the password hackers discovered in Holland? I understand they got away with millions of Facebook and Google account passwords along with many other provider passwords. Might be a good idea to change passwords to be on the safe side.
