    I purchased this from the original group buy by PEU on CPF a number of years ago. Two of the vials I had epoxied in broke; I replaced them with two new vials today. The epoxy for the original vial has a bit of yellowing and it’s a tab bit less bright than the two new ones. I know for sure the...

Later, I was using the belt sander to remove a particularly large burr on a ti part, and the bur caught on fire as it parted from...
