Re: [BKARTS] Srrvice/Foundry type



I didn't try to melt it.  Was years ago (1980 or there abouts)  maybe a different alloy.  The service type I've had in the interim doesn't come with as polished a face as my brass type, and it never polished up like the brass.  Nor was it as finely cut for detail, especially the smaller sizes.  But when I needed an unusual face for just one job, that was the type I ordered (probably about 1/3 the price if I remember correctly).
