Restore a Allcocks double ventilated aerial reel

Post by Evert van der Plas » Wed Mar 08, 2017 10:02 pm

I bought this reel as a challenge to see if i can do something with it, i cleaned the reel, removed the oxide and reconstruct the broken parts with metal epoxy paste. still working on it but it starts to look good now :-)

Great work Evert!

You do love a challenge!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

I agree, Harry. Is this even a thing; how can it be possible to bring that reel back. I can't wait to see the finished article. This is why I've never thrown anything away since 2005. Ha.

Very wise decision Mark so if you have a wreck like this keep a eye open for the final result :-)

Blimey! You do like a challenge, Evert.

I am amazed that the epoxy is holding onto something so thin....bravo!

Do let us know which epoxy you are using.....I think I NEED some.

This is what i use
IRONCLAD AND METALLIC TWO-COMPONENT EPOXY ADHESIVE.

Field of application
Ideal for strong repairs of metal objects which must withstand extreme conditions (forces, vibrations, (sea)water, heavy load), such as tools, car parts, engines, (motor)bikes, metal (garden) fencing and cutlery. Also suitable for sealing a small hole in a radiator. Suitable for bonding of metal (steel, aluminium, iron) together and in combination with stone, wood, concrete, and various synthetics (such as formica, polyester and bakelite).
