    How To: Intro Into Silver Pouring (Part 1)
    AG Ender



    Published on Dec 3, 2016
    Hello all, this is part 1 of a 3 part series, an introduction into silver pouring. All of us who pour silver have our own ways we like to do what we do, and that makes each piece unique, not only each pour, but the finished product, even if the same mold is used, will come out different from each person who pours.

    In these videos I show what I do, it may not be the best way, but it is effective, and you will get good results, with practice of course.

    There will be 3 videos in this series, beginning on what supplies you need, and how to get prepared to start pouring your first piece. Then there will be a pouring video. Then to finish off, a polishing and stamping video.

    I hope this helps at least one person out there.

    Here is part 2 of my 3 part series.

    In this part, I will show a couple of pours, and some of the things to look for and to look out for. As well as one technique (of many) to affect your cooling lines.

    Again, I hope this is helpful to someone out there.

    An unconventional answer to a common question - should I take advantage of my 401(k)? Yes. But for a very different purpose. You can counter adverse price movements in your gold and silver and let Uncle Sam and your company pay for most of it.

    Melting Jewelry into a 1kg Silver Bar
    eWaste Ben



    Published on Dec 6, 2016
    Scrap Sterling Silver can be found quite cheap if you look around, 2nd hand stores can sometimes have trinket boxes of jewelry to look through, car boot sales, auction lots and even on ebay occasionally.

    There's different purities of silver jewelry and the best is 925 silver which is 92.5% of pure silver.

    Here I melted just over 1kg of silver into an ingot, with the addition of 1oz of 9999 silver it should come up as just over 92.5% pure silver or more.

    The spec's of the furnace I use can be seen here..

    WHY I STACK GOLD & SILVER
    Silver Saver



    Published on Dec 14, 2016
    Around my third month of stacking, I started to ask myself why I stack and weather I should continue stacking.
    This question set me in a path of learning about gold and silver through reading, watching videos and listening to you and others.
    It filled me with wonder, and I was astonished to realize how much of US history is related to gold!
    And although very interesting to me, I am cognizant that not all will want to hear about it, so I will not bore you with the details, except to say that what I learned about the history of gold and silver in the US, made me more enamored with American Gold coins.
    The knowledge I gained in my first year of stacking brought me to a greater resolve to stack in fractional gold, American Silver Eagles which will eventually be converted to American Gold Eagles, and US Constitutional coins.
    So I picked up some fraction gold!
    As well as a gold gilded American Buffalo round from Pit Bullion.
    This is the link to his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDPh...
    and Pit Bullion's online store http://www.pitbullionlv.com/
    Also, I received a Christms present from Backyard Bullion along with a prize win from his recent subscriber giveaway contest.
    Visit his channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM_i...
    THANK YOU Backyard Bullion for the very beautiful hand poured pillar candle.
