Hello Joe,

 

Could you please elaborate on what it is you are actually trying to do? Shakudo, as I know it, is not a process but the name of a Japanese alloy. You mention that you have all the stuff and books. Again, could elaborate?

 

I'm in the process of moving house this week-end so might not be able to get back to you for a few days but I reckon once your query is clarified either Patrick Hastings or Jim Kelso could more that adequately provide you with some help.

 

regards, Ford
