COMMENTS ON ORDERING:
1.  We must have the artwork to make your silk screen.  I have no way of knowing
     how the above will print out on you printer.  The area is like a round top triangle,
     1 5/8 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide across the bottom.   Use fairly heavy, black
      lines on white paper,  No shading, or colors.


 

2.    The ceramics mold can be used a maximum of one time per day.  It is
     recommended  you have at least one per 15 students in your largest class,
     times the number of classes, plus two extra.

3.    You will need a method of melting the zinc alloy.  Most schools had the Johnson's
    soldering furnaces.   The pouring shank was designed to be used with the melting pot
    that went with the furnace.  If you use some other method of melting the metal, you do
    not need the pouring shank.

POSSIBLE SOURCES
    I have no connection with these sources.  There are other
    sources, these are just where we purchased ours.

SOURCE 1
  "Ceramic Equipment and Supplies" in Yellow
   pages of phone book.  Most schools have kilns
   in the art department, use theirs, we did.

SOURCE 6
   Local discount department store

SOURCE 12
    The best and most economical oven is an electric
    kitchen range.  Several schools have let it be
    known they needed one and some parents
    donated a good use one to the school.  To buy a
    new one look under "Electric Appliances, Major"
    in Yellow pages of phone book.

SOURCE 13
    "Scrap Metals" in yellow pages of phone book.
     Ask for clean die cast, or zinc alloy.
