Greetings to all… My first post. I am a Dead Soft Amateur! Heck
I’m so new I don’t know if that was even funny!
Anyway, the big mystery for me is this… I have been making
belt buckle bolsters out of one eighth inch brass for some time. It
is hard to work with.
Today I did a search on Google and found a dealer that sells
S.Silver wire. He sold me two pieces 15" long. He told me that it
was “Dead Soft” wire and that I would be able to make my bolster
shapes very easily. Sounds great. He also told me when the shape
satisfied me, to heat the wire with a torch. He didn’t say what kind
of torch though… and after the wire looked like ‘ash’ let it cool.
He told me when the wire cooled, it would be hard and hold it’s shape
extremely well. Bolsters have to be tough you know…
IS this program going to work out the way the salesman described it?
What “didn’t” he tell me…?
Thanks to any and all in advance!
Gratefully, Colin Paterson
