Micropore-The wonderful modellers aid.
Ever heard of Micropore ? well if you have not tried this material then you are in for a treat,how did I find out about it well read on ? -
Whilst cutting some wing ribs one day I accidently sliced the side of my finger,I reached for some Micropore and placed a piece around the cut,the next thing that happened was my finger became solid and was instantly mummyfied ! I had accidently touched some cyno on my workbench which had immediately soaked into the Micropore and encapsulated my finger in the process within seconds,this agonising experience really made me think as to the uses that this material could be usefully put to.
I literally had to chisel away the block of material on my finger which showed that Micropore + Cyno = one very strong joint !
I have successfully bonded piano wire undercarriages to fuselage structures,bonded struts to tricky structures and generally used it to strengthen up those areas that are very awkward to get to,the main value apart from the strength is the light weight of this material which usually comes in a roll,it weighs nothing but imparts strength that no other material that I have dealt with can give.
The possibilities are endless as I am finding uses for it all the time.
To use just bind the part that you want,then flood it with either medium or thin cyno,a quick puff of smoke and a rock like joint will result.
Never used MicroPore but I do know hospitals use a type of Cyano Glue for cuts and it does work.
Also use Cyano for those small nicks or holes in your jeans...they won't fray again after u put cyano on the edges.....But take your jeans off first...!!!!
