Moderator's notice by Peter W. Rowe[_2_]

Chipped Stone by [email protected]
Hi, A few months ago I set a lab-grown sapphire into a sterling silver Comfort-Fit ring for my son's girlfriend, who gave it to her mother for Christmas.

I need to buy a 'Rolling Mill', any suggestions ? by FC...
Need to get a new Rolling Mill. I don't really want to spend any more than about $700.00 as my use for it will be VERY basic (texturing metal, flattening out small ingots). I know nothing about 'rolling mills' so any suggestions or information would be very welcome. Thanks, /FC....

First Cast by Muso
Hello again, folks. Well, My first cast took two tries, so I will describe the first try first. I filled a one-tablespoon stainless steel measuring spoon about half way full with zinc nuggets, and then I heated the spoon with a propane torch. The torch made a red spot on the side of the spoon,...

Cuttlebone Casting by Muso
Okay, so first I went to my local Pet Smart, where I found a six-inch cuttlebone in the bird aisle. I paid two dollars for it. After that, I went to Michael's, where I bought a razor blade knife, and some double-sided tape. Finally, I went to the Home Depot, where I got a stone tile, and some...

Is it possible to strech a 9" (5mm wide, 2mm thick), 14k curb bracelet (not solid), so that it becomes long enough to be worn as a chain (at least 18"), but that it still remains wearable i.e. strong enough?

Market for imperfect gemstones? by Paul Ciszek
In another newsgroup someone made the claim that the existance of synthetic gemstones had not affected the market for natural ones. I would have thought that the market for less-than-perfect gemstones, at the typical-American-consumer level would have disappeared once perfect synthetics started...

Ring resizing? by stacy c
I have a ring that I made in a size 7.25 for sale; a buyer who is a size 9 wants it. The most I have ever stretched a ring is up to 1 full size, with a roller stretcher. The stone, which is already set, is very unique, so this would be my preferred option, but I am afraid that stretching...
