Modding Thermal Grease

    Unfortunately I didn’t know exactly what the metal was. But the history of its origin, its physical properties and appearance unambiguously testified to its noble origin. There is only one shortcoming: the pieces are small and crooked. So, I straightened them on an anvil and put on a flat sheet of aluminium.
    As a result I got what is necessary for “grinding”, two planes of 4*6 cm and 3*3 of mosaic form. The first thought was to solder it with a soldering iron. But I changed my mind; if I failed in making the modding I would like to remelt the silver, but it would be contaminated with tin. Therefore I decided to fix it with epoxy adhesive.

   For that purpose I cut out the workpieces of a plane piece of iron. Then I soldered a kind of handle to the smaller workpiece to make the process of grinding more convenient. I put a plastic sachet under it to prevent sticking of the resin to aluminium. Then I degreased component parts with spirits, mixed the resin and glued.

   I’ve got such result after polymerization of epoxy resin. It would be better if I glued with cold welding to prevent leaking. But this idea didn’t come into my mind in time.

  I smoothed out the adhesive buildup with emery-paper, then made plane on a lapping machine. I got the result quickly and it was nice. (look to lapping guide)

Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
