Are you casting with Argentium? How's it going?
I'm asking because where I work, we use deox silver from Hoover &
Strong or Rio. I don't like it-- it is soft, brittle, and sometimes
we get cracks in ring shanks where the sprue is attached. I've talked
to H&S about this, but it still happens sometimes.
And, no, the flasks are not being quenched hot, they are air cooled
overnight (per the boss-- I'm not there).
At SNAG, I had long talks with Rhonda Coryell and Cindy Eid about
Argentium, and I'm ready to give it a try in my own work. I got the
go-ahead from the boss to try it for casting, here at work.
But before we go that route, I'd like feedback from Orchidians who
have tried the current formulation of casting grain.
