Gold testers


What electronic gold testers are best? There are a lot out there and I’d
be grateful for some opinions before I buy…



Hi Tim,
The business I work for takes in a lot of scrap metal, maybe 1 to 1.5
kilo per month. We have found that just using the acid test is the most
economical. But we also use a tri electronic gold test unit also. It is a
really good unit. It will tell you if it is platinum or what karat of gold
it may be. It is a bit on the expensive side running in the neighborhood
of 550.00, but it is reliable.We purchased ours from Swest Inc.
I hope this helps you.
