Why dont you just get someone to whack some alu tig weld into the holes then sand and smooth them over?

Just bought some of this to try out on my alloys, will report back once we've tried shooting powder over it.

EDIT: Won't work, it doesn't like being exposed to such high temperatures. :/

Aluminium filler.


that stuff is pretty handy, im pretty sure it should powder coat, as its melt point is bloody high and its a brazing process to cause bonding not an adhesive process.

i recently used hts-2000 and it was miraculous, heat the metal up real hot and the stuff just sticks... its surface tension is like cheese and it is as strong as steel. just dont burn yourself. there are many aluminium brazes that are available also i think machine mart sell one for a score.

which did you use as a heating method. i want to get some for my PC-70 project, but Mapp torches are approx £60, far too expensive for such a small job i want to do.

Reason is, there are sod all high temp fillers that work with aluminium and are easy to get hold of.

There is lab metal, but i cant find a re-seller in the UK.

My school has a brazing station that can reach 700 celcius or something ungodly like that when you whack it up to full, so heat wasn't an issue for me :P

thing the paint is although its very pretty its crap for cases as it will chip eventually.

even after using the aluminium braze you always over fill, to allow for fettling.

Plus powder coat can be as glossy as paint, but not require the maintenance paint dose!

I agree, i would choose powder over paint any time. But when filler is involved, i would paint.

Lol soz for late reply,
i just used a big propane torch like what roofers use to melt the tar.. I bought the torch from machine-mart for 20 quid or so and it hooks right up to an ordinary propane cylinder from the barby.
