We got to this point which is ideal. My son needs to help me out as I will die if I try.

it is used for lost wax casting and investing. You put in a flask after spending hours or days working on the pieces, prey and hope it works... turn it on when your about to pour the silver and it should cause a full 360 vac.... this will ensure that the porosity of the silver is firm and that every little tiny detail is shown. unlike the system I had for the turtles and others like the elephants.

This should give me the best chance for success when making such intricate and detailed items.


the rest is now down to me.

I can not blame faulty machinery.

This silver casting rabbit hole gets deeper hey @admin
Once upon a time, a slightly younger @faiz wanted to pour/cast his own silver. He promptly snapped out of it.
It looks like an expensive game for those with great patience and skill. Good in ya. I hope it works a treat.

The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

Well then I must be a man, because this is by far the most expensive toy I bought for silver pouring.

However I am excited and can not wait ( but I will force myself ) to wait because I have been making some beautiful silver that I am proud of. I don't give a monkeys what others think .. LOL Ok Yes I do,..... but I am for once really really enjoying making the art. There are so many aspects.... And I can make ANYTHING you can dream of. My skills from 2018 have been moving up and up, I am even playing with GOLD in several forms.

And yes There are also Diamonds involved. REAL certified Diamonds... OMG

So I am truly happy and humbled to get this far. But it is still 100% a hobby. I do it as and when I can. I am not rushed and I only take on jobs that I know can be done whilst giving customers a real time expected time scale. But I love making my own stuff.. MANLY of course.

So sand, graphite, carved wood, and now lost wax / resin .... it is all good. I love it. And love all you guys for your support. I will share and show you all soon. I need to work on my photos for my website... makes all the silver look like blah. but its the lighting I am sure. And the camera man.

I’m glad you’re having fun mate. Hobbies are usually expensive, so I wouldn’t worry about it.

Tell me about it... I recently had to buy a new burn out furnace... where I did a great fun video of " Can you use your furnace to melt bullion" the answer was a quick no.. but the video was fun and SCARY.

That piece of equipment was A LOT of money!!!! My second largest purchase.

I have 3 electric furnaces for melting bullion. and I have 2 burn out furnaces.

And the list continues... gosh.

Gosh, that’s a sizeable investment there already. I saw your video on the burnout. I really enjoyed it, thanks. You do have a very cool setup. I’m afraid if I was to even look in that direction I would end up deep down the rabbit hole.

Honestly it has taken me years to gain skills. And I am still learning. Nothing is perfect in my eyes. And I hate selling. Kind of a strange thing really. But this hobby pays for the likes of the forum as well as my Youtube channel.

It is time consuming but if you know me.... it is something that motivates me and gets me moving instead of being depressed and the likes.

Anyway I thank you. I do enjoy all of this and it is not a power trip. As you will see, the mods do all the work I am just a pretty face.... Well even that is debatable. Rolling Eyes Razz

"I am just a pretty face.... Well even that is debatable."
Who's debating  @Admin ? 'Pretty' is not a term I would use, even in the earlier photos you posted the other day. 'Characterful' maybe, even 'distinctive', but not 'pretty'.
