    Are you aware, that solubilised Copper placed into ponds also kill fish. Fish are extremely sensitive to Copper, and if I recall correctly, Copper kills fish in parts per million.

    If your alloy on top of oven gets to 60C for short time, should not be a problem. Main thing to keep in mind, first coat must be bonded well. If not, once exposed to heat, it is a re-melt job. Trying to again re-coat will not fix first coat...

    I suspect, that your first coat was not dried adequately. Once coating and alloy gets to about 180C it starts to cross link and bond. However, traces of moisture will affect bonding, and that is why normally it flakes when doing smash test. Over...

    Can you post a picture of the pellets used with these air guns? What sort of alloy is used? I cant imagine just how much pressure is needed to shoot 300 metres with air. I wonder how these pellets would go with the coating? I was advised, that...

    I like it a lot. Very modern style. I don't know where or how I could use it and thank you for the offer. If you post me a photo it will be cherished. Just a thought, have you received your coatings? You posted that you were expecting arrival.

    Fair enough. I just picked up an STI Tactical 5.0 9mm second hand, sweet shooter. The full length dust cover adds weight to the front perfectly for sight recovery.
