I really don’t know the what the problem is that you’re having. I was having a similar problem a few years back. I had to get cataract surgery and that solved my problem. Maybe ask someone else if they are seeing the same view you are seeing through the scope.
Is there a service out there that would resurface ceramic laps. I have one that got scared. I also have an iron lap that would be nice to have refinished also. The ceramic laps are so expensive it sure would be nice to get them resurfaced instead of buying another. Just curious.
I agree with silvermon. This type of mold will be more efficient for what you are trying to accomplish. You are doing it right oil, heat and pour. Open ingot molds are much harder to control temperatures. You will usually always get that shrinkage in the middle with an open ingot mold.
Brian’s right rose gold will harden up a little faster than say yellow gold. I don’t go past the 50% volume when rolling or drawing before annealing. You definitely don’t want to use rose gold casting grain for rolling or drawing. Unless the company states it can be used for casting or rolling...
Thanks, guys. I never realized they gave them away.
I did engrave a Les Paul that Gibson did give away, to Les Paul. He died a year later and the guitar was sold at auction for $24,000.00. It was the last guitar Gibson ever gave him. The auction had no information about the guitar.
