I am a novice jeweler. I bought a used casting machine that is
originally for dental casting. The crucibles he gave me were really
small and possibly contaminated. The crucibles slide into place with
a d slot with their bases being rectangular. The slot part is
removable for different sizes of crucibles… I need new crucibles
(preferably large and deep) and the slots to match. Where would I
order these things and how do I pick the sizes to fit the slots I
already have if I can’t order new ones? I need good tongs too for
smaller flasks! How do I know which is best? I have a small tank the
man gave me and he said acetylene or propane works for melting
silver…Do you think so? Where would I get it filled for acetylene?
Also I need some boots for my flasks-preferably the kind with a bump
in the middle with the hole you fill with wax…(for smoother
silver flow). I’ve always used larger equipment at a school so I’m
getting really frustrated!
Thank you for any
