Re: plastic solvent cements - again


I discovered that I had a couple of stored away Plastruct cement bottles that had allowed some of the contents to seep away.

I resorted to a very vintage ‘fix’ that I once read about……

I smeared the bottle threads with Vaseline petroleum jelly and re-closed them. I don’t know if that’s a great fix for this. But it does work well for sealing our model paint jars. If it slows down the evaporation of the solvent when closed up, I’ll be satisfied.

Best to ya,

I accidentally left the lid off my bottle last week and the next day most/all of the solvent was still there. I recall leaving the lid cracked on my Testors and/or Tenax and after a day or two it was gone.

Hope this helps.
The Ambroid ProWeld was good stuff but went unavailable. It's now been duplicated by Minuteman Models...saw it at the RPM in Enfield CT last weekend along with a full and glorious selection of Scalecoat II paint on his table. It warmed my heart to see it all available as it's still my preferred paint.
