I would greatly appreciate comments and advise regarding the
heat softening and subsequent easy bending of both earring posts
and cufflink findings.
Sterling silver earring posts readily bend after being
acetylene/air, easy soldered onto the back of the earring unless
stiffened. Burnishing to harden is difficult as is using my
flexshaft with a small rouged buffing wheel. Ought to be a
better way! Please…
The vertical twin silver posts (that hold the swivel bar) in a
cufflink single unit finding, softens following acetylene/air
easy soldering. When the wearer of the cufflink leans on his
wrists they will bend unless hardened stiff. How do you manage
to accomplish the hardening? Burnishing, buffing??
Again, my thanks and best New Years’ wishes from Sunny Southern
