Not today but last week, I "fixed" a door stop.
I made it for my daughter a while ago out of a log.
I know it's mostly wood, so shouldn't be on here, but there is metal and fire involved in the fix so I think it's allowed.
Anyway, turns out it had a serious design flaw and it would not...
Pretty low, but I do go slow to get the paint to wet out. Also the paint was over thinned (but not grossly) and as I was trying to seal and fill at the same time I wasn't expecting miracles.
In fairness if I'm using the Jotun I'm after heavy build and expect to have to flat back a fair bit...
Cheap gravity gun 2.5mm fluid tip and air cap setup.
I've had mine so long I forget where it came from.
I keep meaning to get one of these, but I have to keep telling nyself, I don't need another spray gun even if it's dirt cheap...
I've been using Jotun 90 and Selimix 7-410
They are both thick to start with but the Selimix TDS allows you to use a "lot" more thinners and it goes on flatter as a result.
It's also a lot easier to get a run with it.
With the Jotun it takes real abuse to get a run or sag but then, it needs...
But, if you don't try you won't learn.
Shipping it out to someone won't teach you anything.
I agree the finish isn't acceptable (unless you are going for a textured look) but I bet the next attempt will be better and if you get better kit, anyone can get great results on small pieces like that...
There are a few recent posts discussing this topic that would be worth reading, however. for the underside I'd use epoxy mastic. I like Jotun 90A but International (PPG) Sherwin Williams etc. do similar products
For the topside I'd use standard epoxy like Lechler or Sherwin Williams or Upol or...
I painted (or repainted) a few more sundry bits over the weekend.
I was looking for a few "before" photos and realised just how these things can get away from you and take far too long if you are only doing work when you freel like it.
Case in point is the air box.
It was in the boot as someone...
Here's my version.
No 1 daughter's middle name is Rose so it would be remiss not to cobble one up for her birthday.
It's made out of an old hot water tank.
Pretty stinky, but it cleaned up ok in my "scrap heap" vapour blaster.
I wasn't fussy because I was annealing it anyway...
How dry was the first coat?
It should be a light coat but not dry.
If it was very dry it would take a heaver coat to wet it out and as you say you should be putting on a full wet coat next, but not sure what you mean by "oily".
Are you too far from the panel when spraying?
You should be applying...
I know what you mean.
In reality, us pen pushers have had it easy compared to the people on the front line.
I'm just starting the prep for a few curries for number 1 daughter's 30th birthday party tomorrow, (she’s a hospital doctor, so very much in the front line)
We have hardly seen her in...
Is that 115mm bolt to bolt on the short side?
It should be 165mm across the diameter. (PCD)
If so a 90 frame B5 mount should fit.
I like these guys (and have no connection) they have free postage to Mainland UK and Southern Ireland...
As you say not the best but as far as I can see it's a 90S frame and I'd bet a B5 mount but I can't tell from the plate. (don't know Weg's numbers)
Have you have a photo of the whole motor and the size of the flange and bolt centers to be sure. You also need to take the motor off to confirm the...
