Hi Karen and all,
I'd like also to hear about people working with Titanium. I'm
currently working on a commission: a Jewish salt cellar in titanium
(and other materials). It involves a lot of sawing (Hebrew
lettering) and of course no soldering. As I'm still in the early
stages of designing and making a prototype in copper, I haven't yet
encountered the "real" problems. I'm looking into the different
possibilities of cold connections (at least 4 sides, as in a pyramid,
have to be joined). I bought some special titanium files but up till
now that's all. Any advice of people who work with titanium is
very,very welcome! (should I buy special drills, sawblades,... ?).
And I'm going to use a torch to do the colouring. Titanium may be
hard to work with but it sure is a very interesting challenge!
