    Somehow I think your nephew story is yet another one of your fantasies. There is no such thing as spending years learning that particular trade without working with the real thing from the start. It's like being a roofer's apprentice(which I also was) without a hammer hanging from your belt and climbing ladders with shingles on your shoulder.
    Matty. How long did you spend roofing? Why would you load the roof with a ladder?

    Is there a demand for silver smithing? Who is their main customer? Jewelry?

    I spent about five months at it. Mostly what I was doing was carrying 80 lb. bundles of shingles up three flights of ladders. The project wasn't sited for a crane.

    Mostly jewelry these days. In Paul Revere's times, it was mostly dishware.

    I did just that, you prick.

    They have one "silversmith" course on offer.
    It's four (4) days long and you work with silver right out of the gate.

    Weird.

    What's also pretty fuckin' weird is that Hans Stofer isn't even a faculty member there.
    He does, however, teach at the Royal College of Art and has done so since 2006.


    Good luck to your "nephew".
    Caedite eos.

I don't like that gold dipped below the 50 day moving avg. I am going to keep what gold and silver I have and buy whatever in september.
    I'm with you. I can make two more good purchases this summer. Could you please pm me every once in a while, to stay patient.

    Commodities are up today.

    For such a strong rebound from commodities today, silver was amazingly flat. Are commodities leaving silver behind on the up days?
