Happy Sunday! First of all, I hope that everyone that is being affected by Florence is safe and our thoughts to any and all that are going through a loss during this time. It is storms like this that reinforce stacking and prepping as a way of life. We hear people talking about being ready when SHTF. A natural disaster like a Hurricane, Flood, Tornado or Blizzard certainly counts as a SHTF scenario, if you have ever lived through a major storm of any kind you know that it can take weeks even years for things to get back to “normal”, it is a nice feeling to know that you have done everything possible to take care of yourself and your loved ones.

It is almost Fall and the start of the 4th quarter of the year, it is a good time to take stock of not only your stacking plans but your preps. Each Quarter we rotate our food preps, clean our weapons and restock as needed to the levels we are happy with or add additional preps. This is a great way to avoid any last minute issues and to know that each day when you wake up you are ready for whatever happens. Prepping should not have to be a doomsday thought process, it should be an” I am ready for the world “ thought process. The confidence in knowing you are ready shows through in your everyday life. I would love to hear if any of you have a system to maintain not only your stack but your preps.

Stay Safe everyone! Thanks for Reading and Happy Stacking!

Happy Sunday! Happy Fall equinox! It is one of the most beautiful times of the year and a notorious time for preparing for the winter to come. Last week I talked about some of the things we do to get ready for upcoming season. I wanted to ask about the different types of silver in your stack. We just took a full inventory and have decided that although Gold is still our main focus due to storage we have changed our focus of our silver stack and have decided what we would like to add first Constitutional(or Junk)- We need more! LOTS MORE!

Although we love
Generic for us it all ends up melted so that will be the only purpose for generics for now. We love Government issued Bullion and will continue to add when the price is right or if a trade comes along, Perth is our favorite. Finally we would like to increase our Hand Poured community collection, there is so much talent our wish list for this is long. With the low spot price still dragging on have you made any adjustments to your stacking plan?

Thanks for reading and Happy stacking!

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is doing well. This week the MIner and I have noticed a few people saying the same thing, That when they have an unexpected expense and use up their fiat reserve they are now looking for other ways to make the needed money instead of selling there stack as the first option. But Isn’t that one of the reason we all stack? In case of an emergency you have it? Have you noticed that once you have the stack you prefer to raise the bar on what you are willing to to do keep it?

Regardless of what you stack, It is amazing how differently the metal feels vs. fiat, the metal feels secure it feels like you have something tangible. The fiat is just an IOU and really only worth it as long as everyone plays the same game. I don’t know about you but anytime we decide to sell something from our stack it has been carefully considered before being listed. We listed a few pieces from our stack when we had a car repair, we figured out the bill before we sold and then decided to leave the listings if any sold. We sold a couple and used the proceeds to add to our stack in some Mene charms of gold and platinum. These are so pretty and the fact that you can put a few charms on a cord, tuck it under your shirt and you can carry a few hundred dollars with you and with no one even realizing it, that is a pretty good everyday carry, small, valuable and shiny. Something to think about! I would love to know what you think
Thanks for reading and Happy Stacking!

Happy Sunday! Today’s metal Chat will be short as we are actually on a family adventure. We have been stacking for a while now and are getting to the point that we feeling much more secure with our overall stack and our ability to be able to sustain, in case of an unexpected expense, or a SHTF scenario.


Obviously we will continue to add to our stack but it is a great feeling to be able to watch the stack grow and these low prices have been very helpful in that manner, however it would be nice to see some action on the metal market too. What are your thoughts? How long can metal stay this low and not have people get tired of the stall? Are you still stacking or are you becoming bored with the inaction? Honestly for us we will continue to stack as long as we can and sell when advantageous or needed, but is anyone getting bored?

Thanks for reading and Happy Stacking!

Now that the unboxing have have been done, we thought we would share a couple of fun pieces we really enjoyed creating.

These are custom copper skulls with silver accessories. they were designed to match their intended owners.

We have the Skull of Selene that was made for none other than Lady @KerrissLRavenhill

This took several pours, the copper skull, the bow, the fangs and the snake pin. The bow was poured in the general shape then hammered into the final design, the skull had to be drilled to pin the bow in place and also it had to be ground to allow for the silver fangs to be soldered. Each piece was polished and shined. the total project took at least 20 hours, it was a really fun piece to create and it really fits Lady KerrislRavenhill's personality.

Here is a link to her unboxing:

We can't forget Queen Silver made for @silversaver888 the one and only Silver Queen

this was a piece that took several pours(must have poured the skull at least 4 times before we were happy with the results) and more hours than we counted, the skull we made a little softer as a queen and the crown was a base pour that has mini poured hammered wings soldered onto the crown and then it had to be sized and fit the skull. This was another fun creation.

Happy Sunday! Today I thought I would share of the largest pours we have done and little about how they were done. Every piece has its own challenges like getting detail on the small pieces is really tricky, however pouring a large piece is a different kind of challenge.

To Pour the really large pieces it takes a lot heat and the molds have to be able to hold up to the weight and the heat. This is The Miner’s first kilo pour

We did a commissioned job for a great guy we met on Facebook and he requested a logo bar and round from us, so we did one each in a kilo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjrUg7GwrLg




Here is the latest kilo we have poured, this was our largest graphite pour and it was beautiful to see it flowing into the mold.



The largest pour we have done is the 4 pound skull that started inspired the tales of Captain K and the amazing stories we have been reading for over 4 months now

The heat on this pour was intense! No matter the metal, when you are doing a large pour it is an amazing sight to see.
