Instead of ordering casting equipment and having to learn another
complicated and highly technical skill right now, as an alternative,
I would recommend using a good commercial casting organization such
as our RaceCar Jewelry guy, Daniel Grandi. Daniels charges and
quality for mold making, and casting are very good. The cost of
good casting equipment, mold making equipment and all the rest is
substantial. While I appreciate the savings of casting your own
stuff, it would seem that you could do a lot better financially
having someone else do the heavy work and you spend your time in
creating new designs. If you have extra time, find some reps and
send them out with your wholesale line.
You can't do everything your self and be expert in all of it. IMHO
