We are constantly trying to get this reaction stable...This Is some older footage I found and thought I should post for people to see. This method seemed to work well, the setup never did flash back, I ran it again for an hour.
Hi Jason..you might want to draw your design with a permanent marker before you start grinding, that way your patterns will be neat... Also, you should buy sintered diamonds...they are solid diamond matrix not bonded diamonds on a shaft.Sintered diamonds cost more but outlast normal diamonds by at least 100 times. A sintered diamond disc would enable you to cut grooves in a fraction of the time..and straight.
The handpieces I am using are professional tools for ceramic work, they cost in the order of 4 - 5000 dollars it's called a "perfecta 900 with high speed turbine" by W&H . I have made a new video which shows how to do this without a water spray, just a wet sponge.I also show an idea I have about imprinting magnets...it's uploading now.
Hi Nate, You could cast pieces like that from aluminium in your back yard with moulds you can make yourself.It would take a bit of work to set up but after that you could make whatever you want using your printer to make the master pattern..
Hi Nobox7.. I find that different materials and conditions require different glues, for example..Acrifix 192 is an excellent glue for acrylic but next to useless on metal.It contains Methyl Methacrylate so it bonds to the polymer chain of the original acrylic... With metal or hard surface glues, a self adhesive (no primer required )Resin cement ( 2 part mix) is the strongest available today for smooth ,hard surfaces. These resins are so strong that Lotus uses them to bond Car chassis together instead of using bolts or welds...A trade name for this type of resin is " rely X Unicem cement " made by 3M espe.The drawbacks to this product are price and temperature resistance. The retail price is around $200 for 11gr. and it only withstands around 250 deg cecius....hence it's use is mainly in Medical , aerospace and high end products. As an all purpose general glue, we have one called Tarzan's Grip. You can get it at the supermarket for five bucks and will stick to just about everything. It dries into a hard but still flexible translucent finish.Takes 12 hours to dry, contains Lacetone...very hard to remove when set.. Hope this helps ..Cheers.
