[Source] Nickel Silver, rod and sheet


#1

Hello all,

I’ve been asked to look into doing a reproduction of a belt buckle,
that was made in steel orriginally, but it has been suggested that I
look into doing it in Nickel-Silver. And it seems I can’t find
nickel-silver rod stock for love nor money. I would rather not have
to do it in steel, that would be a pain, I haven’t welded steel since
high school! (Well, intentionaly anyway…)

If it’s in Toronto (Canada) all the better.

Cheers
Norah

Here are a couple of sites

http://rjleahy.com have some odd sized shape and small amounts.

http://metalliferous.com In their metals catalog an almost never
ending assortment. And of course the place for things that are hard
to find.

http://www.mcmaster.com Along with any of the grobet
dealers have a small tube package Nik/sil rid in a tube. He is the
one of the local grobet dealers with a web site.

http://www.armstrongtool.com you can try your local welding shop they
may have some gas rod for nickel silver.
