Hi everyone, I purchased an acrylic case to display various shark teeth with labels. The teeth would be placed on the bottom panel - the one that is on the table - with labels underneath them. Here's what it looks like: I didn't really consider how I would keep the shark teeth in their places. When the case is shifted, the teeth will shift with it. The teeth would just need to stay still if I need to move the case for cleaning underneath it, for instance. I don't want to use anything destructive like glue because it's likely that I'll want to re
I've been meaning to make these for quite sometime. I went into work today to get a project finished and completed it quicker than expected. So i figured I'd finally make these acrylic display stands. I made a few Mastercam programs and started making chips on the router table. The smaller ones are 3/8" acrylic rod and with a 1/2" acrylic base. The larger mosasaur stand is 3/16" acrylic. To hold most of these fossils i bent up brass rods and glued them into the 3/8" rod. They look funny bunched together, but they will look much more professional when not so
Hi all plaese and thank you, can anyone know where I can purchase small plastic containers for micro fossils. I like the push on lids like this. I have looked for sometime but only can find screw tops. I am in the uk and if you know what they are called that would be great . Thanks again
mikeymig posted a topic in Fossil PreparationI had a fossil display at the Rochester Gem & Mineral Show this past weekend and I was asked "Where do you get all your display stands from?". When I worked for World of Science Inc. and Natural Wonders, I bought ALL my stands and bases from Jule-Art inc.. I spent $25,000-$30,000 a year on acrylic displays and any specimen I sold in our stores over $50 came with a free base or stand. They have a ton to choose from and they pack them extremely well and ship quickly. On some of the beveled bases I applied black or burgundy felt so the specimens wouldnt scratch the acrylic and it looked good.
