To the Brain Trust,

Talked to Brownells tech line yesterday and was told that the kits (not the tubs) are out of stock and they are not sure when or even if that product will be available because of chemical content. I use it for repairs only and like the flow and tinting that it provides. I know they have the gel and with the thinner for it but how comparable is that to the original? Any recommendations for a suitable alternative would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

Go to the original manufacturer Devcon and buy their kit. I’ve also tried a product advertised on Facebook. You order direct from China and bypass any chemical restrictions. The ad on Facebook shows them putting a lighted firecracker in a tube plugging it and glueing over (way too much hype). However it seems to be as strong as they advertise

Thanks Tamid.

Can you dye Devon just like Acraglas?

First leaded gas, with its great smell is stopped, then Hopes #9 is changed and now Acraglas may be next. All the great smells of my youth are being killed off one by one. Good thing I have thousands of Paper Federal hulls and a red dot to load in them.

Tamid,
Just to clarify, any suggestion as to which Devcon is the original? I am guessing it's the High Strength. I am referring only to the original acra-glas, not the gel.
Thanks for your knowledge.

You might try G-flex by west systems, more viscous than accraglass but flows better with some heat. Strong and as the name implies, it has a fair bit of flex to it. Designed for wooden boat repairs, good stuff.

I agree with KY Jon, Because modern society has given free reign to the "Joy Police" more often known as the "Health & Safety" inspectorates. In my dim past an older Engineer I worked with just before he retired said "we are letting those faceless ones in the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) to much power and it wont be long before they ban so much you wont be able to do your job properly." He is now no longer with us but John Bowen looking back you where absolutely right, I did think of listing all the things that are not obtainable for public use but when the list passed thirty I decided not to. Just remember this water is poisonous if you drink to excess and eating to many Apple pips is also not good for your health. In one way I am a little thankful that I am close to the end of my journey through this life, the future looks far from rosy.


The only lessons in my life I truly did learn from where the ones I paid for!

What are you using for a release agent on the Devcon or West Systems?

I just use grease. Seems to work well. I know they sell a release agent but never had any. Others may have different opinions.


So many guns, so little time!
