And with what would you clean it?

thanks in advance

As CyberDruid has stated.

I generally pour the unused portion back into the metal container.

As a side-note, I did leave some of the #3 in the applicator for about 3 weeks, and it took on a redish hue. I have no idea why or how, and the folks at Tap Plastics did not know either. Probably no biggie, but I dumped that batch just to be on the safe side.

THANKS!

And do you have a worklog of the Indigo Mod Case thing?
Yes, I will do so.

Did you have something specific in mind?


And also Yes. Here is a build log for that odd-looking case.

I'm also glad to see you are looking into the 'fusion' method to sammich pieces together ala a long-ago inquiry from myself!

As always, I am glad to be a mere 2 minutes of your time today & look forward to this being completed! I need inspiration to pick up where I left off!

Thanks bro & +
When the protective film is first removed there is a fair amount of static build-up (but that could just be me as I "shock" fairly often )

In addition to what Rado stated below, I have found that saturating and cleaning the panel allows me to see any flaws, and prevents further marring of the panel.

But mainly for the alleviation of the static build-up.


Indy... how did you hurt yourself?

Be Free.

It's like Burger King, "You can have it your way."

Dream.
Build.

I will adopt the method of pouring the unused portion back into the main container - unless of course I find myself on some huge acrylic project and will need to continue with the stuff the next day, then I would just cap it and leave it over night.

thanks again

EDIT
Follow up question: is any plastic funnel safe to use, to pour from the main to the syringe bottle?

polypropylene...the same type of white translucent plastic in the syringe bottle..appears to be inert to the solvent.

There are funnels made from plastic that would deffo melt... I would treat any colored plastic with suspicion and test it first.

I use a large plastic syringe to draw the #3 out of the metal container and inject it into the applicator as the pouring action of the lipped edge on the metal container really makes a mess.

(Top one in This link)

And McStuff, I will add a heating and bending section, but that will be more than a couple of weeks away.
