Products for Metalsmiths
Among the products featured this month for metalsmiths are mold compound,
a special light magnifier and point-of-purchase products that can enhance
your sales of custom designs
The White Light
Keep both hands free while examining your work
The Roxter Illuminator/Magnifier is designed to provide an intense concentration
of pure white light under a large, distortion-free magnified work area.
Two flexible gooseneck arms allow for exact positioning of the magnifier
and the light source. This enables the metalsmith to keep both hands free
for close-up inspections.
The light/magnifier includes a 5-in. diameter, rimless, high impact,
precision-polished acrylic lens with a wide field 2.5X magnified view (protective
lens cover included). There's a weighted base with table protection, a low-voltage
bulb and mounted on/off switch. Four models are available, including ones
featuring a halogen bulb, an incandescent low-voltage bulb and double lens
for larger magnification.

Necks and Ears
Adjustments made easy
Adapting jewelry to fit the wearer doesn't always have to involve a metalsmithing
job. L. Lawrence Products offers two products designed to solve problems
quickly and leave customers more satisfied with your creations.
The Comfees Cobra Chain Adjustable necklace extender improves on the
company's older extender by making it adjustable from 3 to 6 inches.
The Comfees Lobe Lovers are a patented pierced-ear protection system
featuring a titanium product that protects lobes from irritation, soreness,
infection and discoloration sometimes associated with post earrings. Lobe
Lovers come merchandised on a point-of-purchase display designed to generate
impulse sales. It features a three-dimensional transparent ear showing a
Lobe Lover in action and brochures.

Breaking the Mold
Silicone compound suitable for intricate work
The Belicold silicone compound kit is designed to enable benchworkers
to create high-definition molds.
The kit includes a heavy-duty ABC vulcanizer that ensures accurate curing
and accommodates standard frames up to 5 by 33/4 by 11/2 inches. Also included
are one set of aluminum mold plates that protect platens and prolong vulcanizer
performance, 1.2 pounds of the mold compound and a mold frame.
The Belicold silicone compound has a 0% shrinkage rate and cures in 30
minutes under pressure for a 1-in. thick frame, so several molds can be
created in a short time.
