Re: [CoinZappers] Re: What a difference a brass brush makes plus!
- Hey the wood idea is great as well. Coin frames!
Whoops my coins soaked for years in olive oil, but heard about DW once joining these groups. In order to switch was advised to use T.S.P. (Trisodium Phosphate), found in any hardware section and have used DW since. Hope this isn't misleading, but worked for me. Lot less messier than olive oil and I can change the water frequently.

Thanks for the ideas Barbara, plenty to think about. I have heard
that once you go to olive oil you cant go back to DW, it doesnt work
anymore because of the oil penetrating the crust.
I would not like to damage my coin further so I am reluctant to
drill holes or solder connectors etc, but since I dabble in woodwork
I wonder if a hand made wood biezel would look ok. The top
attachment would be a problem with breakage, but I could make them
to exactly fit the coin no matter the size or shape.

Have some with holes already and use a fishing swivel for a chain,
others I simply string with a strand of rounded (beveled leather for
a necklace), the list goes on. Oh and I have had coins soak for over
4 years in olive oil, then switched to DW, brushing dilligently in
between, with brass and nylon, thank heavens for a zapper. Found
some just like the idea of having something anceint in thier hands
to call thier own. Wondering now how some of the pieces would fare
with epoxy resin.
