Re: [BKARTS] Srrvice/Foundry type



Betty,

Foundry type is a lead, tin and antimony alloy. It is very soft (only a bit
harder than lead.)  In larger sizes is is fine for goldstamping if properly
used. No heat above 300 degrees and minimum pressure. It should last many years.

Regards,

Ed Stansell
