      > Hi hobbicast I am wondering if you can help me in my seemingly endless search for tin. I live in Australia and am searching for some tin to make an alloy for some bells. I have searched hi and low for just small quantities of tin but alas no luck after much effort. My problem is I dont need a lot and this stops any interest from bigger companies. If anyone can help me I would be very grateful. P.s. I have been a member for a while now and have really enjoyed the wonderful knowledge being shared ...thanks for that. When this project is complete I will post some pics and comments :)

      You might consider lead free pewter, R-98 is
      nearly pure tin. We use R-8 pewter that is 92%
      tin. Miniature Molds ships internationally,
      <http://www.miniaturemolds.com/index.htm> and
      sells pure tin plus various pewter alloys.
