I've been thinking about getting an electronic gold tester. Does anybody on here have any experience or recommendations on a good affordable tester. Also, do any of the electronic testers work on other metals like silver? Thanks
pine pitch makes good glue but needs a hardener. Powdered shells or egg shells works good. If you could scrape off a tiny piece of the "glue" in your piece and then hit it with a flame, you will smell the pine if it is pine pitch. It is more than likely "modern" glue though.
