Sparex


#1

I have figured it out! You were right it wasn’t warm enough, I didn’t give
it enough time to heat up! I found this out because the next time I went
to work I accidentally left the pot on and found out that it worked!!!
thanx for your help with that!

Also, with the silver, is there another quality source other than Rio that
sells silver and stones at a cheaper price??? I would really appreciate it
if I could get their fax number! so from what I have read spring hardened
silver is mostly for things like clasps and all so I need a 1/2 hard
silver…right?

You might try Hoover & Strong for metal. They have a great selection of
different forms in sterling, fine silver karat golds, platinum, palladium,
etc. They will also supply it in any temper that you specify. A great
source for stones is Ray Gabriel. He has a web site and if you search on
his name you should find it. Good Luck. Steve Brixner

Sparex works very well with sterling and fine silver, I don’t work
with gold, so I won’t comment on that. I’ve never had a problem
using Sparex even on Nickel-Silver, Dix Gold, Jeweler’s Brass,
copper . . . I wouldn’t recommend dropping stones into the stuff,
it is, after all, just another acid.

What kind of acid are you referring to???
