Beautiful job. I'm tempted to re-enforce mine before it cracks.
So, was that 15/32 ID?

I was told the ID was .459, keep in mind that is a .15 body.

nice

Post  engine049 on Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:48 pm

Very nice repair I was gonna suggest. In plastic Drilling tiny holes at the end of your cracks stops a crack in its track. also gives a bigger surface for whatever adhesive you use Jb weld has always worked pretty well for me but I like to rough a surface up REALLY well Also its a good idea to carve a v into your stuff with something like this



http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Pcs-4mm-Cone-Shaped-Nose-Diamond-Mounted-Point-Burr-/390396328196?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae56f3904




I use http://www.ebay.com/itm/SOLID-CARBIDE-MICRO-DRILLS-FITS-DREMEL-JEWELRY-MODEL-RAILROAD-CRAFTS-/180834821595?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a1a9865db

I generally use those drills to drill holes for Babbington Waste oil burners however for small plastique

I also use them for nail Avulsions



From youtube somewhere not my nail but i just drill by hand to release pressure

Thanks for The 1+`s

Thanks for the tip, I've never done that. DUH!

I have to have those bits. Maybe I'll get those for my birthday present if the price doesn't climb too high. They're probably easy enough to find elsewhere, like Grainger, maybe.

It works. I've done it with a red hot pin. I would torch the drill bit to sterilize it first too.

About the red hot pin I might be concerned that the red hotness might cauterize the blood from escaping Ill try this method next time I smash my finger blue lol

Also my dad used to use an exacto knife and spin spin spin then Poof done.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Surgical-Blades-15-w-Scalpel-Handle-3-Dental-FREE-/130659541719?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6bea62d7

A scapel and blades can be bought REALLY CHEAP and comes with 5 blades i just got mine the guy send 10 COOL! but blade 11 is best and they are gamma radiation sterilized AMAZING for removing splinters nail avulsions any kind of self surgery they are Great for crafts they last longer than Crapzacto knives their sharper. and it makes you feel like a surgeon :Smile).

Ba BLAM is right. Free shipping. I'm going to have a hard time controlling myself shopping here. A few bad feedback comments, buyer beware, but I'll have to give him a try.

300-600 transactions per month. Sometimes you just can`t please everyone... I have been able to but its been tough 1'ce I wrote handwritten letter requesting revision. I got negged for a stupid microwave i had written a reserve in the description in and then when they revised they changed to neutral I even offered to send the dude some free hotwheel car. GRRRRRR

I look at Bernies feedback and know how amazing his customer Service is and people still neg him. I remember when he got his first Neg ever. He was not a happy camper.

He has the usual rather inflated idea of International shipping costs though, he'd want 3 times the cost of the drills to ship them here! and I get engines from the States for $5 -$10 shipping!

Well I just tried JB Weld on my TEE DEE's Carb body, after sitting for 30 years I pulled it out started cleaning it up to fire it up, the needle was loose so I tightened up the carb and I heard it crack on the top edge at the back right threw the threads for the Carb vent, sanded it up and put a little J B's on it seems to be holding but I really haven't got this thing fired up yet, she's being stuborn runs for a half min and stops, wondering if i's the crack, Like I said another post the old plastic red Cox tank doesn't seem to be as strong as it use to be either.
Bought a new carb housing to replace this if it doesn't work.

Jobe:

We've had an extensive discussion of this very topic that might be found in the search file. You may need to use several different "serch words" or combinations to find it.

IIRC, the J-B Weld "fix" is temporary at best. The new part is available from Matt for $6.95, not sure about the other vendors.

He's already got a new one if the fix doesn't work.
If you need to search this site, you get better results if you use Google Advanced Search, type "coxengineforum.forumakers.com" into the Domain search box and then enter your search terms. All results will be from this forum. Same with RCG, RCU or any other site for that matter.

That looks familiar........

Think it would be possible to do .010/.020 ones? Perhaps too fiddly? lol!

Those would be some tiny rings to make. New carb bodies are readily available so probably not. I can do 09 carb rings if needed.

Welcome to the elite club! I have yet to run mine. I did clean it again the other day. Does that count?

I'm a heel. Soon though, along with a utube video.
