Silver vs. Aluminum
« on: December 16, 2018, 08:48:44 PM »

This ..doesn't really fit in any one specific category, so here it is:

I still have all of my silversmithing tools.  Torch, magnetic polisher, etc.

is there any form of cross contamination issues I'd need to be concerned with if I were to use them on Aluminum?
I'm leaning back towards making jewelry again, but this time with aluminum.   Thought hit me that I could clean blank pieces up really well with a run in the magenetic polisher, but I'm unsure about mixing the steel pins and aluminum.

If anyone knows of any problems for things like that, I'd love to hear it.

Hope you all are well and that you have a great holiday season and Christmas this year!
