Safe for malls, stores
and offices!

pressure like boiler-type steamers, so they eliminate the risk
of explosion. Perform comparably to much larger machines

boasts up to 40% greater effective capacity than similar units,
so it provides more steam
before needing a water refill.
Features a high-limit pressure
control switch that regulates
heat and pressure automatically.
Made of toughest materials to
withstand constant use. Easy to
install with no plumbing required.
Includes fast-response heating element, foot-controlled
solenoid switch, safety relief
valve, sight gauge, low-water
cutoff with reset switch, steam
pressuregauge, lockable blowdown drain valve and a water fill funnel and
valve. Uses ordinary tap water. Complies with ASME safety code. UL and

Auracle Gold Tester
Eschenbach MaxDetail
Everyone Who Works With Gold
Will Want One!
This headset magnifier offers high-end
features at an affordable price. Galilean
design provides wide field of view (20°)
and independently adjustable magnification and focus for each lens, ensuring
excellent clarity for each eye*. Objective
lenses compensate for ±3-diopter
spherical correction or allow adjustment for
close-up activities.
The Auracle Gold Tester is a breakthrough
in gold testing due to its speed, accuracy
and simplicity. Unlike other testers whose
accuracy is dependent upon complicated
testing instructions, preparation procedures, cleaning or refrigeration, the
Auracle indicates karat value within a
second by simply touching the test object
with the pen.
Uses a non-toxic, non-staining solution.There are no messy solutions or acids that can
discolor your clothes or hands or worse, damage the object you’re testing.
The Auracle is lightweight and portable to any venue. It tests all types of gold from 6K to
24K and platinum. Inexpensive to maintain, the replaceable pen lasts up to six months
of testing. Requires one 9V battery (included).

Ultrasonic Burnishers / Porosity Removers
SonoCraft Ultrasonic Polishers – Gesswein brings ultrasonic polishing to jewelers!
Traditionally used to finish metal molds & dies, ultrasonic polishing enables precision finishing in the tiniest areas! Our new SonoCraft Polishers use high-frequency low-amplitude
ultrasonic vibration to reach into the tiniest places to clean, burnish, even engrave – leaving an extremely bright burnished surface. These are reciprocating (hammer) handpieces with
an ultrasonic stroke length so tiny and vibration so fast that it's almost invisible so you maintain full control over your work for exceptional accuracy. These are critical factors when
working in small areas. There is very little vibration transmitted through the handpiece so it can be used comfortably for long periods of time. Made in Japan.
Why Do You Need SonoCraft?
•SonoCraft brightly polishes inside the tiniest areas and most intricate designs (areas so small they are often left raw or sandblasted) to improve the quality of your finished jewelry.
•SonoCraft replaces abrasives which can mar or blur delicate or intricate designs because it quickly burnishes down burs and rough surfaces and leaves a smooth shiny finish.
•SonoCraft cleans up and burnishes RP (rapid prototyping) castings, leaving a uniform smooth surface.
•SonoCraft removes excess material after laser filling porosity holes, and burnishes the material deep into the hole so it doesn't open up later.
•SonoCraft polishes in and around beads to achieve the highest possible shine on pave and micro pave settings.
•SonoCraft Model ST-60 does light engraving jobs and has enough power to burnish beads onto stones.

SONOCRAFT III Model ST-50
SONOCRAFT Model ST-60
The powerful SonoCraft III ST-50 has a full 30 watts of power making it ideal for working on gold, silver and softer metals. Features an adjustable output knob for increasing
vibration strength for jobs that need more power such as burnishing castings or under
cathedral settings, and for decreasing vibration strength for delicate jobs such as burnishing tiny settings or cleaning up rails. Utilizes highly polished carbide tool tip (sold
separately below).
With 40 watts of power, SonoCraft ST-60 works on gold, silver, platinum and other hard
metals. Burnishes out RP marks leaving a smooth shiny surface. Cleans and burnishes even
faster than the ST-50 but also does intricate engraving and bead tightening. 4 Ultrasonic
Modes make this a very versatile system, all controlled by the foot switch:
Single Hit Mode: Tightens beads on to stones with minimal or no touchup needed.
Intermittent Mode (Slow): Slowly repeating impacts for light engraving.
Intermittent Mode (Rapid): Rapidly repeating impacts for engraving.
Continuous Mode: Constant fast impact for burnishing and polishing.

Umicore RHODUNA® TD
The world’s brightest and whitest rhodium!
Rhodium suppliers all SAY their rhodium is the whitest and brightest,
but only Umicore can really PROVE it. Measured by spectrophotometer, only Umicore RHODUNA TD is as bright as pure rhodium
(89.5–90 on the lightness scale), while other brands fall short (86–
90). Test results were independently verified by CIE-Lab. There
is simply no whiter rhodium available on the market. In addition,
Umicore RHODUNA TD also plates thicker (0.5µm) than other brands
(0.3µm)—almost twice as thick for roughly twice the wear resistance.
Umicore RHODUNA TD features sulfate-based formula with high
deposition capacity, good plating speed and exceptional throwing
power. Packaged in shrink-sealed plastic bottles for protection and security. Choose from
concentrated solution for rack and barrel plating or pen plating straight out of the bottle,
convenient premixed solution for bath plating and replenisher for restoring depleted baths.
Black concentrated solution now available, as well — see below.
Features:
PEPE Neon Digital Pen Plating System
Features precise voltage regulator and clear digital readout. Allows you to select the exact
voltage required from 1.2–17V for perfect results. Includes compact rectifier base with
recesses for holding two pens and three plating solutions, plating pen with three felt tips,
alligator clip with lead wire, three plating jars with twist-off lids for avoiding spills and wire
stand. Plating solutions and concentrates sold separately. Electrical: 110/220V. Measures

COLORiT
Starter Set Shown
Jewelry designed by
Annika Bertisdotter, Goldsmith
The revolutionary way to add brilliant color to your jewelry!
Add COLORiT ceramic-reinforced composite material to jewelry design and bedazzle your customers with its brilliance. When dried with the included curing light, this material cures
into a solid polymer network of exceptional strength and durability. Resists both chipping and cracking better than hard-fired enamels. Won’t flake and peel like epoxies. Comes in
liquid form, making it easy to apply on both flat and curved surfaces. Produces colorfast, nonshrinking design accents. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
Features:
• Gives your jewelry the look and feel of enamel
• Can be inlaid into any precious or nonprecious
metal, including platinum, silver and stainless
steel. Can even be inlaid into more COLORiT
• Can be formed into beads or imitation
cabochons
• Colors can be used right next to each other to
create a cloisonné look. A few seconds of precuring eliminates color bleed. Colors can also
be worked uncured to create artistic effects
• Colors can be mixed to create any hue, opaque
or transparent
• Won’t fade over time
• Can be carved, sanded, filed, machined, latheturned at high speeds, sandblasted or polished
to a high shine right along with the metal
• Highly resistant to scratching, shock and
impact. Bright finishes can be restored with a
simple repolishing
• So durable that it can withstand tumbling,
electroplating and mild ultrasonic, steam and
solvent cleaning
