It has been recommended to me that I utilize a “foot press” (“kick
press”) for a certain project. Once again, I turn to Orchid for
help. Given that the metal (gold and/or sterling) is only going to
be 2 to 3 mm thick & 5 to 6 mm wide, I don’t want to spend more
money then I have to on a foot press which will be overkill. Gold
Machinery International’s site leaves a little to be desired in the
way of details (machines’ abilities) and pricing so I haven’t moved
along the learning curve in analyzing the available options.
Another piece of advice I received is to make sure the press I
purchase is relatively simple in construction so that I can fix it
myself should the need arise.
All this leads me to ask Orchidians: 1) What foot press would you
recommend? 2) What price range am I looking at to purchase a new
one? 3) Any recommendations for a source?
p.s., I realize that the “stamps” are a separate cost.
Thank you one and all
