Bloom technique


#1

Still looking for on the “bloom technique.” If any
one knows of a book or resource, or person who does this,
PLEASE contact me… I do laser welding on antique and estate
pieces and some are done in this genre. Would love to know how
to restore bloom pieces!!! HELP!!! Bob Staley

Hello Bob!

Just finished a 14k rope and pearl bracelet repair today. Could
have used your laser welder. Could you list a few tips on your
setup? Which machine you have? Price? Did you try other
machines? What is the learning curve like?

Several years ago I knew a craftsman who used to "zap"
fabrication projects together and solder them later to clean up
the zap blemishes. Technology has come along since then. Fill us
in.

Thanks Tim
