    Prices look to be a lot heavier than those of Engelhard.

    BTW, the Engelhard plant is located very close to Clemson University where I work. Unfortunately, it makes no sense for me to organize a group order since as a South Carolina resident I have to pay sales tax of 5% over the price of the metal. I organized an order of over $5000 a few years ago and after the fact realized that someone in another state could have saved over $250 on the order, all other conditions being the same.

    I just bought some gold chloride from mostlymetals.com, and got a pretty good deal. The owner, Blake Ellis, is an alt process printer himself, and mostleymetals started as a buyers' club.

    He's probably worth getting a quote from by e-mail, since he's also trying to put together group orders to get the best price, so he might be able to get a better price if he knows that you want a large amount (i.e., by combining your group order with the orders from his regular customers).

    David,

    Thanks for the lead. I did try him, but the price was not as good as others unfortunately. His best price was $9.02... Thanks though.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    If it is not too late I would be interested in participating in the purchase. I would be interested in 50, maybe even 75 depending on timing.

    Hi,

    For anyone who is interested in the purchase, it will be more likely that we will place the order the first week of January if not the later next week. Until then, you are more than welcome to join. Just directly send me an e-mail (skip PM!). Thanks.

    Hi Bulent,

    I am sorry but you are a little too late. I have finalized the order and send the check already.

    I am hoping to do it in 6 months or so. Maybe we can organize it so that we have a set date for bi-annual group purchase every year. I think everyone will benefit from it for sure. I would be happy to organize it again.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    Hell Tsuyoshi,

    Did anything come of this? Wondering how the group purchase worked out. Consider me if you do this again.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Bill,

    The group purchase went through and I received my order quite a long time ago--once he got the ball rolling Tsuyoshi had everything set-up and finished in a very short period of time. I'm set for right now, but would be interested in another group buy in January--I know Matt (scootermm) was looking to join a group buy so you may want to start a new thread and see if there is enough interest to do one now (I could probably go in for 25g right now).
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!
