    I don't have this particular model, but I've been using magnetic polishers for years, and had the same problem to start with. Then I realised that the supplied pins were far to big and aggressive, so...

    He's just gorgeous! He reminds me very much of some animal brooches my lovely great aunt had, which she'd had made for her in the 30's - she had one to represent each new country she visited - and...

    Welcome Gill,
    I've gone to Betts (the tool bit was formerly Suttons) for Pepe stuff in the past - I have a few of their tools and have found them to consistently good. They don't carry all stock,...

    I have a couple of jump ring makers (though not the pepe one above which is far too complicated IMO), and I still end up cutting by hand nine times out of ten - and I cut hundreds, sometimes...

    I don't know if it's any help, but I've only ever been able to find red 18ct in medium (in panels anyway - I don't think I've ever seen red in wire) - I have a little stash of most grades of solder,...

    Oh Dennis - they are both fabulous - I also especially love the acrylic version - you've managed to convey so much expression, especially with the very clever shaping around the eyes.

    I do it all the time. It's a particularly useful trick if you're needing to set a largish flat bezel base and want a flat, rather than curved surface to maximise contact.

    Dennis that listing's pretty hard to read, but the two together comes to over 275. Not much of a bargain given that the two sold on the main site come to just over 240. I realise there are selling...

    Are you just wanting it to be refined, or is this to sell?

    If it's the latter it can also depend on the weight you're talking about - if it's less than a kg, some companies either won't take it,...

    Argentium 935 is marked 925 (sterling). The 960 version, which isn't as readily available, can have the Britannia (958) mark applied. I'm not sure if anywhere is now stamping the 935 mark - though it...
