Kenneth, I have used United deox silver for 3 years now, it is WONDERFUL!
castings come out totally clean (just don't overheat the silver when you
How do you know if you are overheating the deoxed silver? Do you cast as
soon as it seems molten or do you let it soak up heat a little longer? What
problems have you experienced in the castings when it is overheated?
I have been using the #57 alloy for about a year now. I like it alot,
especially since there is absolutely no fire scale. However, I am still
fine tuning its use. I am melting in a propane fueled melting furnace.
I also got a small quantity of deox bronze from them. I haven't tried it
yet, but I am looking forward to seeing how well it works. Kind of
expensive about $20.00 a pound (expensive for bronze anyway). I am planning
to use it for small detailed accents.
I'd appreciate any tips you might have. Thanks
