Precious Metals Acid Test Kit

Precious Metals Test KitPrecious Metals Test Kit

This is likely the best value you will find in a precious metals acid test kit. The kit includes everything you need to test gold (10k, 14k, 18k & 22k), silver and platinum. Also provide is a glass stone, though we recommend picking up a few extras (as they are less than $1 each). There is also a decent scale (weighs up to 600g x 0.1g. g, oz, ozt, dwt), a loupe (to read markings) and a set of files too. Everything is packaged in a plastic container to keep your kit together.

Available from Amazon for $23.99 plus shipping

They’d be small city-states at first, although the aim is to have tens of millions of seasteading residents by 2050. Architectural plans for a prototype involve a movable, diesel-powered, 12,000-ton structure with room for 270 residents, with the idea that dozens—perhaps even hundreds—of these could be linked together. Friedman hopes to launch a flotilla of offices off the San Francisco coast next year; full-time settlement, he predicts, will follow in about seven years; and full diplomatic recognition by the United Nations, well, that’ll take some lawyers and time.

Is Gold about to Bust?

We just found this article from TIME.com on May 19, 2010. Today gold is edging $1,800.

TEOTWAWKI News Excerpt:

That means gold is due to drop in price anywhere from 33% to 50% from a recent $1200 an ounce. Now that is something for the gold scardey cats should be scared about.
