    Elements and Metals GB

    Back from Yosemite. There doesn't appear to be very much interest in this GB, I've only gotten the responses above in this thread. It costs a huge amount to ship this stuff to my house (last time was over $100 for shipping due to hazmat fees and such) and I might not do the GB if I can't get a...

    Elements and Metals GB

    GB is through a different supplier, but I will continue to investigate options. A large amount of the cost is shipping for materials like this, so I will talk to galliumsource about shipping costs. Also, shipping by air requires an extra hazmat fee for gallium so international shipping might...

    Elements and Metals GB

    I would be open to splitting costs with a group of people for some of the elements I am unable to provide. If anyone is interested in splitting costs for strontium, beryllium, sodium, or potassium, let me know and we can work something out. Even better for me would be an organized element...

    Elements and Metals GB

    Finally heard back from the company and got price quotes. Shipping is very expensive in bulk for materials like this, so this GB depends on if enough people are interested so that I can put in a large enough order. I inquired about everything that was suggested, plus a couple extras, and here...

    Elements and metals group buy?

    No problem. I'll make a new thread for the actual GB as soon as I hear back.

    Elements and metals group buy?

    I still haven't heard back from the company. I will give it a couple more days and then send another email out if I haven't gotten another response. I fully plan on doing this. I also just rearranged my element collection, so I really hope I do get a response so I can add to it!

    So far, here's a list of what people have expressed interest in: Gallium Indium Mercury Magnesium Potassium Cesium Rubidium Bismuth Copper (powder) Iron (powder) Aluminum (powder) Cadmium Titanium I won't be selling thorium, uranium, lithium, or sodium as the company I am buying from doesn't...

    Elements and metals group buy?

    Nothing wrong with collecting elements, it's a good hobby. Also really satisfying to use those elements to do projects with. I can definitely get all materials to make Field's metal and Wood's metal, but I won't be selling uranium or thorium metal...I don't even know where I could buy it in...

    Elements and metals group buy?

    Didn't know this, thanks for the heads up. That kid was WAY over his head. I would personally never plan on doing anything like that but laws are laws, I guess.

    Elements and metals group buy?

    I'm glad people are interested in this. I'll leave this thread here for a couple of days to gauge specific interests and then send in a request for prices. Please let me know ahead of time if there are any metals you want me to get a quote on so that I won't have to send in multiple requests...

    Elements and metals group buy?

    Here's a link to the last GB: http://laserpointerforums.com/f55/multi-element-gb-official-39841.html I've attached a photo showing what elements are available; anything in yellow is available in some form or another. I'll have to inquire for prices.

    Elements and metals group buy?

    Fun/project metals are exactly why I'd be doing this. I love that kind of stuff. Last time, I remember selling bismuth, indium, gallium, and a couple others. I'll pull up a link to the thread if I can find it. I actually want to find the bottom 2 alkalis for my own collection, but they are...

    Elements and metals group buy?

    Thanks T_J! Good to see you're still posting a ton. It's cool to see some of the same people around here. bloompyle: I'm able to get gallium, indium, magnesium, copper, and aluminum definitely. I can look into the alkali metals but they might be harder/more expensive due to reactivity and...

    Elements and metals group buy?

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted here, but I still lurk occasionally. Anyway, I did a group buy for elements like gallium and bismuth a while back and I was wondering if there is any interest in something like that again. I'm not quite sure if the dynamics of this forum have changed...

    College choice?

    Okay, okay. I know I have not been on this board for ages, but I think at least somebody should have a good answer or some opinions. I've been accepted to both Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Colorado School of Mines. I have just finished touring both schools and have seen definite pros...
