I have been using David H Fell Inc. for 10 years. They are fast
and have good prices and their refining is fair and honest. I would
try them if you are looking for a new source.
I really like their patterned sheet and the gold solders I have
tried. However, their understanding of standard milled products seems
to be lacking. As I was placing an order with DHF for patterned sheet I
decided to also order some fine silver bezel wire that I was short on.
I was surprised that the person taking the order asked me to hold
while he checked to see if they could supply bezel wire in the
(standard) width I requested. When the order came, instead of a coil,
there were numerous strips of sterling (not fine silver), the strips
were torqued as they had been cut from sheet on a bench shear and the
width was uneven down the length. When I called, they tried to assure
me it was fine silver and what I had ordered!
After that experience, I am not sure why I later risked asking them
for 3 feet of x-gauge 1/2 round wire with another order, but I did.
As delivered, it was the proper item but was cut in 3 separate strips
of 1 foot each! Won’t happen again.
