  • Iron Powder

    This are raw iron particles havested from Lake Chaplain. I'm working on a better (faster) way to separate them from them beach sand. When the weather warms and the lake goes down I'll be able to get to much cleaner sources. Most of the sand that you see in the pix are small pieces of ore that still have enough iron in them to be drawn to the magnets.
    Thought it would make great whisker stubble or fur areas in portrait work. You could also make area that magnets can be used for products ans displays. If you think about it there must be tons of ideas out there. I hope there are many suggestions posted.
    If you are interested send me a SASE and I'll send you a sample.
    Two may want to use 2 stamps because of weight so I can send you enough for a good sample.
    I found it commercially available online for about $25 a pound.
    If enough are interested I'll make it available. Unfortunately I can't do it free but it will be far less than above.
    I won't say any more here as I'm already pushing the classified rule.
    If you have questions PM or Email me.

          We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

          When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.
