gold prices

Post by frog113 » Thu Jan 24, 2008 4:41 pm

with gold prices going up we have been doing more lighter weigh casting or die forming These were made using Rio's "plastic sucker" using the thinner stuff (about 1/2mm)
I left the center to show how smooth the finish...these were only lightly polished center is raw cast
we are milling in plexiglass We can then either die form or cast plastic
the plastic is a little more forgiving....you don't have to have quite as smooth a finish

thickness

Post by frog113 » Sat Mar 01, 2008 4:39 am

thickness was .3/.4mm and was pretty uniform

total weight for the pair with solid backs was a short 3 dwt probably closer to 2 1/2
