White Gold ingots

Any tips for alloying white gold for drawing wire and sheet. I have the proper master alloy for rolling and drawing, but find that after a few passes my metal is cracking. Tell me what type of ingot mold have you used, do you torch melt, etc??
Thanks in advance

Take your time, anneal, slow pace, anneal, adjust for very small increments on the rolling mill, then repeat until done. White gold is not an easy one, except for 18KW palladium of course. Hope its not 10KW. :wink:

There are TONS of posts on exactly this subject in the Orchid Archives! Do a search and enjoy :-)…
