Leftover Niobium

The first time that I ordered titanium, I also picked up some samples of anodized niobium. They had very bright color, were a little bit thinner gauge wire, and had a little bit of spring back when I was working with them.

I made a few bracelets and necklaces, but because it was thinner, and because of the springy-ness of rings it was a little hard to work with. I did have some left over, and decided to spend some time tonight turning them into mobius balls.

I made some 5 ring rainbow balls, some solid paired balls, and some 3 color paired balls. They look like little chainmaille roses all lined up on my table.

I think they are wonderful but then I am a dork and love color.

During deep drawing or cutting operations of sheet metallic native strains up to as} 200% are reached. Hence, giant deformation compression and tensile exams Warm Winter Mist Humidifiers on rolled sheets reveal the necessity for finite factor simulations of machining and forming operations. In Section 2.1, the most generally used compression exams offering sheet metallic characterization are proven. These decide materials habits beneath giant strains without vital injury.
