  1. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Don't mess with it the fact that is so imperfect makes it more valuable, more rare, you have the one and ONLY one like it. I cant believe you could destroy this thing.
  2. Never happened to me, I use STANDARD CLAY ^6. (can't remember the number) Take care Graybeard
  3. Am I the only one here that is getting a strong feeling that we may be costing someone their job???
  4. FRED, That's cool. I have a OHAUS balance and a pretty old 4 beam Ohaus. On the 4 beam the magnets are on the right end by the pointer, and the balance there are two, 1 on each end just below the stages. I don't use the four beam too often, but it look really cool on the table where I do lapidary. stay safe graybeard
  5. RAE REICH The magnets on a scale help to dampen the movement of the beam (slow the rocking) stay safe graybeard
  6. Hmm, I thought they were made to explode. all the ones I used did. Looks great though! nice job! graybeard
  7. I use a immersion heater I picked up at a feed store, its intended purpose was to keep water troughs for barnyard animals from freezing. they also sell smaller ones for bird baths and outdoor pet dishes. graybeard
  8. OK!!!! thanks everyone I appreciate all the responses, Stay safe Graybeard
  9. Hi all, I was reading hershey8 post about cracks in cup handles, and some folks recommend MAGIC WATER. My question is, What the #*&!$ IS MAGIC WATER???? humbly, Graybeard
  10. I have a Speedball Artista wheel and I like it, (the foot pedal isn't worth a d@&n though) but I have no problem using the speed knob. The Artista DOES use standard bats. No, it isn't as powerful as my AMACO model b, and yes, you can slow it down while centering, but it's a good less costly option. stay safe graybeard
  11. Been using a cookie press fer about 2 years, works great but you REALLY NEED to KEEP the THREADS CLEAN. graybeard
  12. Benz, Ya gotta remember it's Stain-less Steel, not Stainless Steel. big difference. But I'm with you guys, that IS a great tip pres. I have a strip of pipe insolation around the edge of my splash pan, I stick my needle tools in it to keep them handy and to save my fingers from getting stuck when I'm feeling around for a needle tool. Less blood to clean up! graybeard
