Where have you been??? I have not seen you post in awhile or i may have just missed it.

Not sure what you are refering to. If it the bubble I bet it may not be deep enough to make a difference.

Unfortunately the bubble is sitting right on the feathers so there's no salvaging this blank.

Where have I been? Well, we moved half way across Canada to Saskatchewan, Pete retired and I got a full time job, just got settled in our house so now it's time to get back to casting .... there's nothing like the smell of resin in the morning!

It goes under the clip and it is all gone I know you sell your blanks and this one may not be able to be sold but I would do some experimenting with it to try to correct it. Spin it to size and drill out the bubble and clean it and do a CA fill.

G'day Marla, long time don't see...!

Glad to know you are starting to settling in at your new place, congrats...!

As for that particular blank, it is certainly a shame but, can I ask how many many have you made since the last time you had 1 (one) not coming out as you wanted...? how many hundreds...??

Sure, that can be a minor fault but I'm sure, any of the guys and gals on IAP would be glad to get it with a little discount, huh..?

Who is up for it...? put your hands up and start typing, quick...!

Cheers
George

Welcome back!

Several weeks ago I was finishing some segmented blanks and a friend was watching. My failure rate is still about 10-15%. I'm getting better, but it is frustrating. He was surprised at how picky I was being. But when it's going to someone else to finish, close isn't good enough.

Good to see you are casting after the move!

If this is a Sierra blank, I would clip off the end and use it on a toothpick keychain kit. Toothpicks may not fit anymore but it will make for a salvaged blank and a finished item!
