Re: contact cement

Denny Anspach <danspach@...>
 

For awhile, Goo, like other contact cements can be" reactivated" to some degree with heat (during the period when Pliobond was being promoted for fastening rails -no spikes- the the method that I recall was that once the rail was glued in place, you went back with a soldering iron and made "final adjustments"). I suspect that this would not work in this way once ALL solvents have finally wicked off.

That said, however, I have in desperation used heat to break ancient Goo bonds where the liberal use of an axe is the only other alternative. Ditto with epoxy. I have always surmised that the heat simply breaks down and weakens the bonds- permanently.

Re: Carbide drill bits?

Denny Anspach <danspach@...>
 

...anyone can comment on using
carbide drill bits in the #60 to #80 range. Are they too brittle?
Can they be used in hand-held chucks?
They are pretty brittle, and in this regard I have not had good luck with them in hand-held chucks. In fact, I broke two within five minutes in this regard- never to be repeated except in a press.

Now others may be able to hold things more steady than I...

Re: Dullcote problem

vyoung5622@...
 

Jared,

I don't know the answer to your problem with Dullcote, but it seems like
there was a lot of discussion in the model railroad press about using alcohol on
Dullcote and obtaining results similar to yours. I don't know how you could
search for this in the Model Railroad Magazine Index, but IIRC, the
discussion took place during the first six months or so of 1991. I'll try to find
some reference to it in my old magazines.

Re: Marklin/Trix R-40-14's

David Ball
 

Thanks Ben and Arnold

I'm assuming the hatches can be replaced easily? (ie, they're not moulded
on).

I agree that for the price I would expect better accuracy. However at the
end of the day, if the other details are correct it would still be the best
starting point for an R-40-14.

David Ball asked:
"What is the quality/accuracy of the Marklin/Trix R-40-14's like?"

Arnold van Heyst answered:
"This reeferset is a nice one to have. Very good detail, although the
roofwalk is a bit shorter than it should be."

The running board discrepancy is minor compared to the ice hatches,
which are grossly undersized. This is inexcusable for a $32.00 model,
particularly when $5 Athearn reefers get the hatch size correct (if
not the hardware).

Thanks for guys the additional info and confirming my initial suspicions

If Andy is correct regarding the lack of a R-40-19 model, it sounds like
these are fantasy models

Super Glue/Medical Adhesive

bongiovanni12001
 

The adhesive you saw at the S gauge convention in Ohio a few years ago
was (probably)"Sinbad". Bought a pack and never got around to using
it. A current Google search indicates that he may have gone out of
business. IIRC one of the early uses for cyanoacrylate(sp?)was as a
substitute for stitches or butterfly bandages.

IM has made a version they market as a R-40-19. It is this one:

Maybe its is just a R-30-18 with a R-40-19 badge?

If you spray something that's a little more to the glossy side,

Re: IM R-40-19's

Paul Lyons
 

No Andy, Intermountain has done what they call "R-40-19 Refrigerator Car" and
it is carried as their product number 47410. It is Terry's R-30-18 kit with
an apex metal roofwalk and a little different paint scheme. A little different
paint and a metal roof walk is essentilly the only difference betweem the -18
and the -19, so I am not sure what Terry would be doing to "create" a new -19
kit. Anyway they butcher this run with errors just like they did all the -18
models except for the one run they got right.

If you were using rattle can Dullcoat, then I think I

Re: Carbide drill bits?

Greetings,

If these are the printed circuit board drills with 1/8" shafts,
they will snap if used in any hand tool. A lot of these are on
the market because they are too short for drilling a stack of
circuit boards after being sharpened numerous times.
