cracked seuthe smoke generator
« on: September 05, 2012, 10:40:21 AM »
hi all 
had a small accident fitting my smoke generator to my paddler. the high temp coating around the heating coil has cracked allowing smoke and hot oil to splatter out of the crack instead of up the heating coil top hole. have tried to repair with high temp epoxy but it burns. is there a product on the market that cures solid but able to withstand the coil heat?

try motorcar exhaust repair paste. Heat cures to a hard block, and is very heat resistant.
You'st to get it at Halfords, but that was a very long time ago.
