As some of you will have seen from Sue’s (Blue Box Studios) post earlier yesterday MangoBeads are up and running with their coring station prototype.
Yes it has taken a long time and we have been talking about it for what seems like an age!
I think that what we have come up with demonstrates our commitment to our press and the finished product it is capable of producing.
We have utilized our combined experience and knowledge both in lining beads and engineering to design a press system that will enable you to line beads beautifully.
Our finishing dies are unique to us they have been designed to give a professional finish to the edges of the silver significantly reducing the chipping factor on your beautiful beads!
Because of this unique design of the dies ‘problem’ (large, long, tall, bumpy.sharp) beads can also be lined.
As with any tool it is important that it is used in the correct way to minimize risks and eliminate problems.
Although our system is virtually fool proof we still (of course) recommend one of our Silver Coring Tuition Day.
The days course will not only cover all the necessary details and give you access to more tools and experience (including direct links to all suppliers of tubing, correct sizes for mandrels etc.) but you will be able to purchase the press and take it away at a reduced price and ……… wait for it
Attending the course will give you access to Full Technical Support and After Sales back up from David!!!!
Our Flaring dies are being manufactured as we speak and we are awaiting delivery of the Arbor Press (the top section) a commercially available tool, which has been held up due to the problems in the Far East.
Once these issues are cleared up we will be ready to go J
The press will come initially with dies to line 4/5mm beads. We are developing dies to line 6mm, 9mm and eventually 12mm beads, these will be available to purchase separately at a later date.
We are hoping to retail the press at around the £220 mark (£185 if purchased whilst attending a course)
We think we will be the first press to be available within the UK and hope that this and the design of the press will be of benefit to all :)
