Post subject:  Hardware & Sticky Stuff

I have used and created many bizarr cases and chassis, and it is very easy to get hard ware that works best for the mounting of PCB's and large components..... but what about point-to-point case set ups were you have parts wired all over the chassis?

I have finally found a cheap reliable solution to my problems...... :mrgreen:

No more dangling wires or rattling components, especially with what I find to be the stickiest stuff around the house..... NO! I can't say it and of corse won't say it LOL :D

Maybe Gio can take a guess..... ;) I may not get in trouble if he says it. Once it is dry it turns clear and permenantly Sticks :mrgreen:

The less messy solution is 5 minute dollar store epoxy, not nearly as flexible and robust but it gets the job done much faster without the uber stickyness

And when it comes to mounting something like at ransformer or a sheet of aluminum to a wood chassis, I like to use large brass wood thread screws and large nuts and bolts for the transformers.

Brass is softer and easyer to strip but it is non magnetic! :)

Feel free to add more...

It's pretty good stuff :mrgreen:

I grab 10 or whatever is on the shelf when I visit Dollar Giant (seems to be the only one left in the west that has 'em).

Cheers!

And I go to my local dollar store to get electrical tape and super glue, as well as those cheap screw driver sets, just because they actually work really good when you have nothing else in sight, usefull for soldering, prying and spreading flux or glue, or anything that is too messy for fingers, and if you break them or strip the tip i'ts no big deal.

Not being tool steel, those little dollar store screwdrivers can be touched to a belt sander and be good as new :D

Cheers!

What would you say if I used old hocky pucks as heavy duty feet on a peice of audio equipment? My uncle uses them and he says they work fairly well, I found four at a yard sale that were in a free junk box and they cirtianly work well as temporary feet. :)

Hockey pucks are almost as hard rubber as a bowling ball, so there's no acoustical isolation.... but it sure adds to the Canada factor :D

Oh those crazy Canadians and their hockey pucks! Yeah, they are hard as puck (sorry) - made of vulcanized rubber.

Here is record clamp using a hockey puck. I could not deface a Jets puck, so I used a Canucks puck! ;)
