Where can I get a nice brick of tungsten, and at a price which is reasonable.

That will be an expensive project.... I have known someone who had a tungsten bowl used in furnace as a special heat resistant part... It was useful for heating things in it, nothing special, but tungten brick? Never ever heard that anyone used something like that....

Maybe ebay if you want it cheap (but I think that noone sells things like that), if not, then contact a special metal distributor, maybe they can order one from somewhere, but it will cost much, especially if you want it from pure metal.

Thanks, eEbay sells all these bucking tools made of tungsten, and they are expensive. I know the commodity price of tungsten in not prohibitive, so why wouldn't I be able to buy a nice dense, heavy brick of it?

The bucking bars are too expensive (so) they are specialized. American Element is unique with tungsten crystal growing, where almost everyone else must press/sinter a 99%W Sterno log dealee.

Even that dude making rhodium coins, although I heard much worse BTW, is known to have used crazy glue in the rhodium spongs before minting. No wastage, just rince tailings in acetone.

Thanks to everyone here!
