All the problems with the epoxying on the previous page <<< ...
... are sorted & SOLID !

There are a lot of parts & wires to fit around the reversing-switch...
...it would be a DISASTER if it came loose once operating.



Thanks again to Hexagon Herbie :old dude: & Michael :cb: for ideas to keep me sane :Crazy: !!!

Hi Si

Not been on here in ages, good progress.

There is this stuff you can get that you simply paint on to plastics like this that don't take anything, it then changes the chemistry of the plastic by binding with molecules without damaging it in any way. Then you can glue what ever you want to it.

Found this out at the ally pally engineering show last year after trying to find out how to re-glue Hornby brakes pads back onto the bogies after re-gauging to EM. Got lots of super glue from them much better than the norm.

Have to source them out for ya just encase, but hopefully herbs idea works long term and you won't need to apply this stuff.

:2t:

Though thinking about it you managed to weld the plastic together, so don't know if it would work with that type of plastic if you needed to.

Found it

shop4glue

They call it a 'primer' that is to be applied before gluing for most type of greasy/slippery plastics.

Cheers Dan

Hi Dan. :wave:

Yeah, I figured you were having a blast at the E.M stuff for a bit.
That trackwork you posted pics. of, looked ***** great stuff.

Nearly sent you a P.M about the Swanley show.
I bet you went & it was brilliant, right ?
I couldn't, AGAIN, sigh...
...next year FOR SURE though.
Any good U.S narrow gauge ?
( I like any country though really )

Thanks for the Super-Glue tip.
I'm actualy looking to get some decent Super-Glue at the moment.
I have been totaly put off using it for anything, for years...
...but it is darn useful, IF IT WORKS !

I always hoped the Loctite guy, on the T.V commercial...
...bouncing up & down with the repaired O-ring, on the parallel-bars...
...would FALL ON HIS BUTT ! ( never did though ).
&
What about the Solvite wallpaper-paste guy ?...
...overalls glued to an 8x4, suspended from a FLYING airplane !
Don't look up ! ... He might be about to drop through your roof ! ( never happened though ).

:f:

I've been thinking about getting some 3D-printed parts.
They are said to be made of flexible-Nylon...
...that's gotta be a real bitch to glue & paint, right ?
I dunno.

Nylon, Delrin, Polythene, Polypropylene, Teflon (ha ha)...
...any other offers for the F.B.I '10 Most Un-Wanted' plastics fly-bill ?

:us:

Cheers.

Si.

Hi Si

I haven't actually done any thing other than the past week or so.

Slipped a disk in the lower part of my back during a visit to the meat man, put the bag in the passenger foot well, then f### what was that, walked round the car bent over backwards looking like I was tying up my shoe lassies whilst s####ing my self at the same time. Glad it was half seven in the morning (Sat)and not after ten, would have been very embarrassing. :P

Swanley was good but not much USA stuff.

EM gauge track: thank you, but haven't been up the club lately to do anything.

Lock tight super glue: Nothing comes out, then all of a sudden splat.... makes a mess, glues everything you don't want to stick together including your self apart from the thing your are gluing and then when dry it turns frosty white. 1 week later falls apart.

Solvite wallpaper past: Bet my snotty tissues sticks to the ceiling better. :bg:

I use super glue for nearly every thing these days, make production very fast and its the stuff from these guys that I use. You can buy load of tips cheaply that go on the bottles to make a neat job and they also do glues for all these types of plastics. As for as paint I'm not sure, cant help you there.

Oh yeah: Whilst at Swanley I joined the slim gauge circle and went to the Rugby meet the next day, was very good. The next meet is in may if you fancy a trip up there.

cheers Dan

I am still (re)considering whether to renew my COTM subscription.

What is the December issue Centrefold ?  A randy old Ruston or a cool young Komatsu ?

Good to see Dan is back (!!!) in town.

Pub cancelled tonight, both got a bit of gastric virus (either that or too many soldering fumes)

Cheers,          Michael

Hi Michael.



'Crane Of The Month' December issue :- Vero & her '57 Chevy waiting for a tow-truck !

:shocked:

I think we could have a NEW publication you might be interested in.

' Small Prototype Riveted Plate Girder Turntable Gazette '

Readers are always welcome to send in photos C/O the M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. offices.

:!:

"Just waiting for a tow truck".

"Yeah darling, whatever you say. Real strange how you break down just about there every night. Now get in the M.M.M.M.M. squad car !".

Strange you should mention the Turntable Magazine. A certain American 'gentleman' has suggested that is what Chavez needs. Those Americans just can't handle their trains tender first !. Who needs a T.T. ?
You don't get smoked up vision ahead nor cinders in your eyes - should be an 'Elf & Safety requirement to always run tender first (but you do have to beware bloody great lumps of flying coal !).

Cheers,             Michael
