I have a hard time fabricating a way to make silver ingots that come
out close to the right size to work with my roller. If I use the ones
I have purchased for this, they are to thick and I end up either
filing a considerable amount off, or annealing and using a hammer and
anvil to get them down to size. I don't like doing either, and both
are probably the wrong thing to do.
I have tried using casting sand to make an open, one sided form of
my correct size, but am having troubles getting the amount of silver
correct. The end product is either budged to high on top, or sunken.
Will this way work, and is there a good way to figure how much
material I need to fill the fabricated mold?
These are just ways I have tried on my own, and I have no idea if
they are even close to anything correct or even workable. So I am
open to any and all suggestions on making this. I don't really have
the money to buy anything else right now, and I am already looking
into a place to send my silver scrap to possibly trade for stock,
especially being made aware of the drawbacks, thanks again Orchid, to
working used silver.
