- what a brilliant invention
I was lucky enough to be invited to a bike show this week and amungst all the fancy expensive bikes and kit there was a bloke in the corner on his own demonstrating this
It was the best thing in the whole show.
Its basically mouldable silicone. It comes in primary colours so you can match any colour. Its used for allsorts but mainly to fix things you would normally throw away as its beyond repair. It sets hard after 12 hours.
I’ve ordered some from the tinterweb and while I am waiting I’ve been looking around my house for things to repair.
I hope you find it as interesting and useful as me.Posted 4 years agojairajSubscriber
Wont it be difficult shape to the size of the gap if it has to be done under water?
Are you talking about Polymorph?
I think it only has to be put in water to heat it up and make it mould-able. Once soft you can remove it from the water, shape it to your requirements and let it cool and harden.Posted 4 years agoMilkieMember
I’ve been using Sugru for a while. I’ve used it for loads of things…
Shower basket feet
Nail clipper gripper
Feet for my Raspberry Pi
I’ve also used polymorph which is great, but it doesn’t do too well in hot temperatures (goes back to moldable state) and provides no grip, it is just nylon after all. They are very different things.Posted 4 years agoportlyoneSubscriber
I used it to fix a worn cleat from moving on my SPDs.
Used it to cover thin nails so I can see them and hang stuff from them.
Also used it to fashion a cable holder on the side of my desk for my phone charger.
Used it on a cupboard door fixing to stop it from popping out.
Cool stuff 🙂Posted 4 years ago
