Wow, hopefully we never reach that level!  We tend to pay for a full laser machine service every 12-18 months but we brought it forward after all of the PPE production.  I've never bothered with 'contract' maintenance as I find it's rarely worth the annual fee.

I'll have to check for 'nearly new' Techno's on eBay first I think, just to make there's not a cheap replacement available instead...  Tongue

Cheaper than me
?.......Bloody cheek !.... Wink


Cheers - Phil. (I hurt, and even I'm too hot today....I gave up pushing putty this afto'....and simply used the Dremmel (lots) to get stuff started. Working with 'Green stuff' was like trying to sculpt with chewing gum....It stuck to everything.....except for where I wanted it to.) Wink

I do apologise for hi-jacking this very informative and humorous thread.  Just to say my A4s are now airborne (posted).  Smiley

I hope they come with tail hooks otherwise USS Wendy's deck may not be long enough.

Hello Techno

From my experience in a warmer climate, you can mix a bit of milliput or even a bit of plasticine to take some of the 'tack' off the green stuff. It's a bit of a balancing act to get the ratios right. Too much milliput and you end up chasing bits that don't stick and too much plasticine and the sculpt melts in the vulcanising.

Cheers

Thanks, Vic. Smiley

If it gets to the same sort of temp as yesterday, I'll give that a go.

I DO mix green stuff with 'Magic Sculp', if I want a really soft putty to work with...but that's still quite sticky.....Even that might work, though. Undecided

Cheers - Phil
