Aluminium construction and repair product
#1
Hi All
I have just stumbled upon what looks like an awesome product and wondered if anyone here has heard of or seen it.

A couple of the guys on the Locostbuilders forum have used and have mixed reactions to its ease of use and durability. (http://www.locostbuilders.co.uk/viewthre...?tid=88214)

Is there another similar product available in S.A. I have the aluminium rods for use with a DC inverter but haven’t tried them out yet.

Cheers,
Phil

Hi Phil

From what I can make out on the website, this product is very similar to a product called "TechnoWeld" which has been available from Metals Centre for years. I have used Technoweld but I have to admit that in my opinion there is nothing to beat good old fashioned ali TIG welding. It would appear that the "Technoweld" item may offer advantages when joining or repairing extremely thin ali! Have a look at the Technoweld website http://www.techno-weld.co.uk/home.html

Thanks Clive

It looks the same and I can solder so I'll give it a bash.

I am thinking of making the back panel (Locost one is not a good fit) and rear wheel arches (Locost not wide enough) out of aluminium and I thought that this type of product will hide quite a bit of the tell tale blemishes that are sure to occur.

Cheers,
Phil
