too cute to melt...
Nice mid morning visit with new friends Neil and Elizabeth. They are from the Austin area - visiting Big Bend for their first wedding anniversary. They win the prize of "most photogenic couple". Cranked up the micro mini all day and pumped out 11 ingots. Just got a second mold and a third one is on the way. Need some extras to keep production going because of the cool down time on the molds...they come out of the furnace at 1800°+. Here is one pound of sterling. One of my cheap Ebay items was a salt server. A much more sophisticated way to season your food rather than using a salt shaker. I melted the little bowl but just as I was about to melt down the spoon, I caught a glimpse of my Mexico Midget tomatoes and the spoon was spared. 92,108,59,0,B,.36
