SPARKIE II & FUSION FINDINGS

Sparkie II Millennium Edition

Capable of welding findings without solder, without annealing the parts and with little clean up! A new fusion finding can be applied every 20 seconds on a finished piece of jewelry. Stones can already be in place. Many repairs take only seconds.

How does it work?

An instant weld is achieved when an electrical charge is released thru a forged nib at the base of a fusion finding. A small explosion occurs that drives off dirt, oxides and atmosphere. It all takes about a millisecond. First, you load a fusion finding in the collet and then place your work under the jig. The welder is charged with the foot pedal for a few seconds. The release is tripped and BANG!, the weld is complete. No damage is done to the piece or your finger!

The optional Production Table offers the high volume production and flexibility of welders costing three times as much.  SPARKIE II comes with complete instructions, built in voltmeter, foot pedal, earpost and tie tac collets, jigs #6 and #7, safety glasses and built in isolations transformer. 

60HZ, 4Amps, 110VAC, 14 lbs.  Optional, built in 220VAC step-down transformer for overseas use is available.  Full two year warranty from the manufacturer.  SPARKIE® is a registered trademark of Triad, Inc.

Production Table

This solid, all steel table replaces the jig holder on a SPARKIE II.  Thermoplastic impression molds you make allow for fast accurate placement in high volume production.

Table with one disk     $229.00

Extra plastic disk         $7.95

Fusion Findings

What makes fusion welding work is a small nib that is forged in the base of the finding.  NO solder, NO flux. The store voltage in the welder explodes through the nib producing a vacuum and enough heat to fuse the finding in place, clean and unannealed.

Each collet is designed to hold a specific type of finding.

Fusion Findings

Findings designed for fusion welding are standard throughout the industry.  All of our earposts are heavy .029" or .030" diameter and use standard clutches. All, except the 1.25" French Hooks, have bullet noses and are notched.
