    Hello Avenger Apparently there was two things wrong, the site was restricted to friends only, but now it has been re-set for public views. Second thing was that I had forgotten to advise, that people had to log onto their own Facebook site...

    Thanks, my mistake. I realised that to use this link, you must use my password to log onto Facebook. I must get my computer tech to show me how it is done correctly.

    ...........Where the milling machine shines is in making up your mould blocks. I simply use 6061 alloy aluminum bought from MSC in 6' sticks. Two pieces are set in the band saw and parted off in pairs with about 1/8" extra length. Then each pair...

    Farmerjim, That is a great idea. I had a look at various Tempilaq products on Ebay. The specific one suitable for around 200C was out of stock. They had a few very close to confirm things.

    Mark2215 Have you contacted your supplier and discussed things? I am finding it very difficult to accept your assertion that 3 separate powders are no good. Acetone/quality/type may be a possible culprit. The first coat is of paramount...

    I really like to Tanned overbaked version. The dark Brown is also very nice. How do they look in sunlight? Can you see any Glitter through that dark coating? Just wondering what cooking times/details were done, to get each colour change?

    How are you doing Warhead. Thanks for your post. I am glad you have had great success. The K-15 is a very slick coating, and tough as nails. Commercial casters here, also like the stuff. With your gas checked alloy, what is alloy hardness that you...

    I may have to contact Petander to get some rare metals to add to the alloy, may be some Plutonium, or Radium, and it will glow in the dark.:-P:kidding:

    I agree to an extent. Colours are similar, but the TMG system uses totally different materials and is more bright in daylight than both 1035 and Sunny Golds.

    Only small batches have been made, and supplied to various people. One commercial caster uses it here. The major problem is, that this stuff is 3 plus times the cost of normal coatings. I have been working on it and have developed a Hybrid...
