Yes all so very interesting, which one, what are they, what do they do and does anybody have one? I have been trying to find away to get a sample of metal analysed for it’s content, in other words what’s in it?
I checked with the gold and platinum scrap dealers but with no replies. Well I thought no one’s interested in my 94.61g chunk of platinum @ $38.53 per g, let me see yep $3645.32 that’s what I thought. Why is it so hard to move this stuff and why is Platinum so expensive anyway?
This all got me thinking what if there was a hand held machine that would assay the metals for me. Guess what there really is such a thing and you have a choice between the X-Ray Diffraction and X-Ray Florescence it looks just like they do on Star Trek. I don’t think it comes cheap either Have a look at this one
As I write this, in topics similar to mine, I can see that Mudwiggle has one of these XRF spectrometer’s and is offering a service that I could very much use. I will have to get in contact with him about my chunk of precious metal that nobody wants, see what he has to say about it. I also read somewhere he has an old school density machine a Pycnometer I think it’s called, he mentioned this in “Is it Gold” a topic Chris wrote.
So as soon as I can figure out how to pm Mudwiggle and I hope he sees this and gets in touch with me first, because I don’t know how to do all this Sh*# Stuff with the computer. Can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I will let you all know what we find out about the sample.
