I have several bones I’d like to display but need to make my own stands. Specifically I have a triceratops rib that I’d like to use as a centerpiece for my table. I see all the time where there’s metal stands that wrap around the bone to hold it in place. What kind of metal are people using that’s pliable enough? Anyone making their own mounts?
Mel C posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHi forum, Newbie here. As the pics convey - I've had a breakage with my cephelapod. Can anyone suggest how to go about repairing? What adhesives should be used? Are there repairers who I could take this to instead? The fossil pieces fit together reasonably well. The backing is a concrete slab of sorts, so no idea how to bond this strongly enough given there is only around 3/4 inch surface area. Thank you.
2 new shark teeth displays. Yesterday I finished my “homemade” riker mounts for my shark teeth. Due that those displays are hard to find in my area, I went to the IKEA for photo frames, I found some where there was more or less 1cm between the bottom and the glass. I also had some soft foam left from extractor hoods that would fit perfectly. At my first attempt I noticed that the foam wasn’t exerting enough pressure against the glass to keep the teeth in fixed position. ( some of the teeth sided to the bottom of the frame) This was solved by adding a simple piece of cardboard behind the foam and compressing the whole. This is the last result ( note that there are 2 ray teeth still sliding away, I’ll have to adjust this a little) The 1st ones are Belgian Miocene teeth the 2nd ones are Belgian eocene teeth and fish remains: Cheers, Kevin.
