Written for the jeweler who wishes to expand his jewelry repair department, this profusely illustrated manual will help both novices and experienced crafters. It provides clear, step-by-step instructions for cleaning and repairing jewelry and setting stones, as well as complete descriptions of the tools and equipment needed, and their proper use and care.
Newcomers to the trade will find detailed explanations of such basic procedures as filing, soldering, buffing, and mounting presented in full detail. Readers will also find easy-to-follow discussions of developments in ultrasonics, steaming, electroplating, and other important techniques.
With this simply written guide, jewelers will be able to perform a wide range of repair jobs on premises, enabling them to offer customers faster, better service. This will not only increase repair volume but will help sales as well. For this updated edition, Mr. Hardy has added an extensive appendix reprinting questions and his answers to them from American Horologist and Jeweler, of which he was technical editor for sixteen years, along with discussions of various salient topics.
