Get it while the price is good

As I sit down this morning, Palladium is $237 per ounce. This means I can sell all the 950Palladium jewelry metals for $13.86 per dwt or about $278. That in itself is good news. But when you compare this to 14kt white gold?! 14kt for casting is $24.86 a dwt, or $497.20 an ounce. In fact 10kt is far more costly than palladium. 10kt is $17.61 a dwt or about $352 per ounce.

PAI web redesign and new blog

PAI has done it again. The new discussion board looks good, and is easy to use.
Plus I like the new forum

Palladium degas flux

We received the sample in mid September. It seems to drive out the gas to some extent, but unfortunately our sample had leaked in the mail. We have an order in for more for more complete testing. We hope to start getting the flux in by November.

The induction tests were more promising than the torch tests. But we will continue as the flux (hopefully) becomes available again.
