Hi all, As said, we are moving to Europe and I decided to sell a
couple of things. I am selling the centrifuge, not because I think
that this is not a good machine - I think that the contrary is true -
but I often had problems with castings because I do not have a
vacuum. I tried to solve the problem or the air bubbles by using a
vibrator, but this procedure is not satisfactory. This is what I have
Neycraft centrifugal casting machine. I purchased this machine
past year in December at Gesswein. The machine is in excellent
condition. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I also have
three crucibles (which I used for gold, for silver and for bronze
resp.). The one for bronze is almost unused. The weight (for the arm
when using heavier flasks) is here. This machine is easy to use, is
absolutely safe and works very well.
Vibrator for investment. I purchased this vibrator past year in
December at Stuller. It is almost as good as new. There is some
investment on the outside, but I will remove it.
I also have three books to sell:
Judith Peck, ‘Sculpture as Experience. Working with Clay, Wire,
Wax, Plaster and Found Objects’, PA, 1989. This book is written by a
teacher (Peck, Ph.D.) with a lot of experience and insight. This book
is meant for sculptors but I found that it contained a lot of
excellent and useful ideas, both technical and aesthetical, for
jewelry design. I like this book, because it is clear and it teaches
you things. Condition: good to very good.
Bain, George, 'Celtic Art. The methods of construction, 1971, New
York. This is Bain’s masterwork. It really is a beautiful book.
Condition: good (there is a scratch on the cover and a put a couple
of arrows on a couple of pages (in case I would get famous, you can
sell this book again, for example to the Louvre or to the
Coles, Madeline, ‘Jewelry. Two books in one’, 1999, New York.
This book was useful for me in the beginning. It’s two books in one:
one has projects (rings, pendants, brooches, …), while the other
one deals with technics (annealing, soldering, mitering, making jump
rings, making clasps, and so on). Condition: very good.
Please contact me off-line if interested. With best regards, Will
