I am Terry Reichert, owner, of Pro Ice Jewelers in Scottsbluff,
Nebraska and we are leading the jewelry industry in Fusion Welding
aka pulse tack.
We do a lot of R&D for the Orion Jewelry Welders and are the
inventors of Sand Hills Gold Gem Guard. See youtube.com - shg gem
guard. This product allows a jeweler to weld on top of any stone or
softer bead which is in a ring without any harm to the stone of
bead. It enables a jeweler to retip pr ongs in mere minutes. Just
like the Orion Fusion Welder it does over !00% of jewelry repair
with no torch, flux, solder, or any other solutions. Generally
saving a jeweler 15 minutes to 2 hours per job and a jeweler will
not need to use 1/3 of his tools. Saves lots of money for shop
findings and other shop supplies.

A native Ozark woman somehow got turned around and ended up in
Chicago in 1998, many years ago, now. She still wonders at how many
years she tried to escape to no avail – to NW Indiana where she
lived with the Sand Hill Cranes, a possum and a big red cat; to
Philly where she transformed into a fly on the wall and watched
unobserved; to China where she lived in a hutong with a bazillion
other people but couldn’t hide.
Then one day, after a long long time, she laid eyes on the Gateway
Arch and remembered what home felt like. So there she stayed, and
there she stays, and there you have it.
