How 'workable' is it when solid? Easy Can it be cut, filed, sanded, drilled, etc. with ease? YesHow strong is it when solid? IMO, not bad Is it as hard as a piece of ABS of the same dimensions or is it more plastic? IMO, Yes, maybe not as rigid tho
Place "hot" Thermo-Loc into a 10ml syringe (without a sharp). Immediately compress the plunger to create long small diameter filaments into cold water. The syringe will probably need to be discarded after one use. You can now have your own DIY manual 3D printer
Yes my wife is quite tolerant, good thing for me The hot glue gun is a great idea.They are inexpensive, you could have one dedicated to Thermo-Loc.I have 3 variacs, one might be good to use for temperature adjustment.The smaller filaments could be used as welding rods of a sort.
Came across this technique while back, I do like it for adding things to PCBs.
Why should I always use distilled water on my soldering sponge ?
As non-distilled water evaporates, it leaves behind all the minerals dissolved in the water. It does not take many cycles of this to create a buildup on the sponge giving it a crust that decreases the cleaning effect.If you run a dehumidifier or window air conditioner, you have a free source of distilled water.
Please explain. What type of pads are used for the components?
Just get a gallon of the stuff meant for steam irons.
