    2314 Norman road
    Lancaster PA, 17601


    Owner John Mentzer,
    717 two seven eight 7906

    I ordered as much as he could ship in a standard priority box, ~45-60 lbs. Called the main number, they gave me the owner John's number. Was able to talk for a while. The bronze comes from Toronto, everdur.

    It arrived, 4 days later, 47 pounds of bronze shipped for $218.00.

    Lookin' good. You'll love everdur if you've never tried it before.

    The stuff they sell from Lancaster color matches perfectly with regular bronze tig rod from the welding supply shop.

    $4.63 per pound is super cheap. Only way to get it cheaper is to live right there and pick it up in person to save the $15 shipping.

    I see you got the swiss cheese variety. WTF?o_O
    If you pick it up in person, you probably get to pay sales tax.

    Having used the silicon bronze from Lancaster foundry supply, and knowing others that have as well. Your just fine despite what the pilot who gets you there most of the time says.....

    Unsure about sales tax.

    But yeah the metal is fine. The holes are probably just from moisture or something in the mold.

    I'm sure it's fine, but you gotta admit, that stuff looks like shit. Let's see how much dross he has to scoop off before pouring.

    I think you two care more about this than I do. I will pour this in my next piece and see what happens.

    not really.. but you are really going to like professional alloyed bronze. It solves a ton of problems.
