PC7 Epoxy

You may have seen the fake Nervex lugs I made using PC7. And wanted to say it's awesome for filling small dents as well. Bought a used repainted track frame. Seller stated and showed 2 small dents in one of the rear stays. Sadly when I stripped the frame there were two more, covered dents on the top tube- that couldn't be seen until stripped. It stays workable for a long time and takes 24 hours to cure. If you're impatient it's a pain, but there's no stress about it setting too fast. Just make sure you mix and mix and mix some more. It's so thick you might even break the mixing stick. But it's great stuff!




What it looks like wet.


And sanded.

I see a future in auto body work for you, but the true test is if you can paint it gloss black and not see any imperfections.

Unsolicited advice: When you're working with that stuff (mixing, applying, sanding, etc), wear a respirator -- protect your lungs.

The Protective Coating Company's headquarters is right down the street from me, I pass by it at least once a week.

(Complete aside) Edey & Duff! I had no idea the yard tayed in operation 'till 8 years ago. I spent a summer there 1973 when they were building Stonehorses, Doughdishes and the 15' dory. Got a sail in the Stonehorse, nevfer on a Doughdish but that summer sailed a ~1908 12 1/5, one of the originals around Wing's Neck in a typical Buzzard's Bay southwesterly. What a capable, well behaved boat! Easiest sail I have ever done in 18-22 mph winds and 4' waves. To me. it was always sad that a person with th e passion of Peter Duff should have his life taken so young. I never believed the company could survive his loss and stopped following it. Thanks for the pleasant surprise,

And on topic - I'll have to look into PC-7. Good epoxies are always handy, (It will take a big job to justify it though. Marine Tex is also goo stuff and my jar is far from empty (and like the rest of the two part epoxies, at least every one I haev used, the shelf life opened is near forever).
