Clam shells

Would anyone want some shells to cut down, polish etc for a project? They’re roughly the size of my hand, loose halves, no matching pairs.

Be sure to have very good ventilation when cutting or polishing any type of shell, as it produces poisonous gasses.

Terrasel I would very much would like to have some shells if still available I think they would work for a project I’m working on. Thank you

Yeah, definitely good to err on the side of caution:

Good deal. When would be a good time to get those to you?

Would this evening work say about 8 pm? I’m free most time so maybe you can tell me when your availability

That should work. I was planning on coming in to check out something in the Textile area at 7, so I’ll be around.

Ok I’ll come in 10 min.
