Added tip on top of mixing slowly... I make moulds frequently, I use two pots to ensure a good mix - blend in the 1st and pour into the 2nd so that any resin or hardener from the 1st ends up on top in the 2nd; place the 2nd into a bowl of warm water for a couple of minutes as it will help to reduce the viscosity of the resin, also assisting in bubble removal; stretch pour from height slowly; if necessary, depending on quantity, run a cigarette lighter just over the top of your pour.

I recently covered a wooden chair in epoxy resin. It is the nature of the product to create bubbles as it hardens. The directions stated to gently blow on the bubbles as they formed. Check it often and blow on any bubbles that form in the first 45 minutes after application. This worked quite well for me. Be sure to wipe up any drips in that first 45 minutes too, they are a pain to sand when they are dry!

You're probably already done with your project by now, but you should wait at least 24 hours, lightly sand, and wipe surface with acetone and a microfiber towel before applying a second coat.

The metal is showing inside. The white coating is pealing. Is this dangerous?

The peeling of the white coating inside of the microwave oven is dangerous in terms of creating a fire hazard and potentially contaminating the food you cook within it. This can be prevented by cleaning up all splatters and spills immediately before using the microwave oven again. You can fix the peeling by replacing the microwave oven or repairing it. To repair it, you will have to remove the peeling coating and then repaint the interior of the microwave with paint that is designed for microwaves in general. Though, if you do this, you will have to let the paint dry up for at least 24 hours. I hope this helps you!

My problem is with a tyco Shellshocker, One of the plastic plates that holds the legs on has cracked and then broke off, is there anywhere I can get a replacement part or anywhere I can take it to be...

It is a very poor design with even poorer quality plastic. In other words, planned obsalescence. It's tough to tell that to a kid (or accept it myself) so I bought some 2 part epoxy made especially for plastic. It comes in a dual syringe to allow you to mix what you need and cures stiff in 5 minutes (24 hours until hard). Don't get the one that mixes as it dispenses, because you might need to repair in phases. Take it apart to the point where you can see the broken pieces, mix the epoxy and apply liberally around the crack and "feather" up the sides. Make sure you do not get glue on any moving parts or in a place that will prevent reassembly. Mine works great, now.

Can a crack in a plastic vapor recovery canister be repaired with J B Weld?

Are you referring to the two part epoxy? I have used that to repair gas tanks of lawn mowers and it worked fine.
Just be sure that the repair area is very clean and you rough the area with course sand paper before applying the adhesive. I would not use the 5 minute or fast dry epoxy. You want the repair to dry and cure for at least 24 hours before use.

While clearing out frozen rubbish out of the base of the chest freezer I've slightly punctured the lining, can I still use the freezer?do I need to put body filler into it.

Yes, you need to patch the hole right away with epoxy. Before applying the epoxy make sure you sand and clean around the punctured area to give the epoxy a rough surface to adhere to. Turn the freezer off and wait for it to achieve room temperature before applying the epoxy.

Dropped it and broke case

When I dropped my 35 year 0ld 8200N, I cracked a large piece out of the case above the grip. I used a steel filled epoxy called JB Weld to join the pieces. It is a two part epoxy that cures in 24 hours. Make a mold using masking tape to fill in missing pieces. The epoxy is runny at first, it will thicken in about 6 hours. This compound will fix about any thing and can be drilled and tapped like plastic. It will even adhere to the 8200N case material. The usual clear epoxies won't hold up.

Just got a Sunbeam AT-W radiant fine but bakelite control knob broke in shipment...any help on where I can find a repalcent?

I have a T-40 which is a bit different (a slider instead of a knob), but here's some pointers for repairing Bakelite:

Bakelite is one of the first man made plastics. It cures very hard and rigid in manufacture and is extremely heat resistant, but it can break like glass. It can therefore be successfully repaired with epoxy, if it is not exposed to high heat, provided it broke cleanly in two pieces and depending how it broke.

Use the best epoxy you can find, usually high strength, fresh, slow curing automotive epoxy is best for this application; just understand that epoxy will fail under high heat. Clean the mating surfaces thoroughly before applying the epoxy and do not put the part back in service for week (it takes a much longer time to attain maximum strength than to set).

Volume control broken

You can purchase clear 2-part epoxy products at most home improvement stores. You will also need masking tape (or similar) a popsicle stick (or similar) a small piece of cardboard and a toothpick.
Mix the epoxy with the popsicle stick and apply a small amount to the exposed surface of the volume control's stem. Holding the knob in place, run a strip of tape from the top of the unit, across the knob and to the bottom.
These epoxies are very strong and fast setting. It's probably best to leave the tape for at least 8 hours but you should refer to the instructions for the epoxy you buy.

Good Luck,

Cracked casing on a halo 3 zune

Does unit still work? If so you could have it replaced, but the cost would be the same as a near new one. Use some two part epoxy(for case) or two part acrylic(for screen area) and apply. after applying thinly, put a piece of semi-rigid plastic on top. Make sure to put cooking pam or silicone spray of the plastic first. When the epoxy or acrylic cures, peal off the plastic and it should be close to good and better then before.

Lever broke


The plastic used is a thermoset, so should not want to melt in order to join together again by that method.

I would recommend using a clear 2 part epoxy resin. Make sure all parts are clean using a degreaser - cleaner, and dry thoroughly for several hours before repair. Use elastic bands or tape to hold items in place while the adhesive sets - about 24 hours for full cure.

If there is still a problem after this, please contact again, or rate so that other may follow the advice given. Thank you.
