    Approx. 5/8" diameter, approx. 3/8" deep

    Accommodates a wide range of metal quantities; pour as little or as much metal into the mold as needed for your die.

    Basic instructions:

    1. Approximate the amount of silver you'll need for your shot die.
    2. Melt a little more silver than you think you'll need in a seasoned crucible (not sold by Potter USA).
    3. Pour molten silver into this cone ingot mold in one smooth motion.
    4. The molten silver will not stick to the mold, so you should be able to tip the ingot out...be sure to use pliers! The metal and mold will be hot.
    5. Transfer the cone ingot to your shot die with the point facing down.
    6. Use a large, heavy hammer with a punch or a hydraulic press to drive the silver into the shot die.
    7. NOTE: If using a press, you do NOT need a small pusher. Either use our 2" tool steel pusher or just the steel upper platen of your press.
    8. NOTE: If you're going to be making multiples of the same shot die, you can trim one and weigh the finished piece to determine how much silver you need for that die. Be sure to add a little extra metal to allow for a flange so that your metal doesn't get stuck in the shot die.

    Aluminum Spacer

    $26.06 $34.75
    This spacer is 4.5'' x 8'' and 1'' thick. Non magnetic Spacers are used in the press to lessen the amount of effort needed to extend the jack and activate the items being used in the press. Top and bottom platens are not meant to touch - it will cause the jack to overextend and cause leaking, or for jack to fail. Always use spacers on lower platen to take up space between platens.
