ThatÂ´s the spirit!
As far as I know, Nick doesnÂ´t even make his own . . .
I meant just one of the brand he has, the John Lynch, I think.
I think it could be easily replicated with my Yamaha 11 that I don't use, and some Weld Stick.
Try it and share the experience!
Once I get some Weld Stick, i just might.
I'll use a little for the MP, then use the rest doing some little mods to my airsoft gun.
IÂ´m not sure exactly what a weld stick is . . .
I know about welding, and maybe a weld stick is that
metal pin at the end of an electrical welding machine
thatÂ´s melting when youÂ´re welding?
A more qualified guess maybe is that youÂ´re talking
about gas welding!? In that case IÂ´m with you!
Since most mpÂ´s are made of brass (with a silver or gold
coat) maybe soldering would be a safer way to do it.
The differens would be that the mp itself doesnÂ´t melt,
and therefore will keep its shape, which ought to be an
I donÂ´t know what will happen if you actally try to weld
on a piece of brass with an electrical welding machine.
If youÂ´re going to try that, make a test on a worthless
piece of brass first.
IÂ´m glad that there are people who are ready to experiment.
After all, humans are not born with ROUND mouths, and the
main reason why mpÂ´s are round is probably because manufacturers
find this the easiest way to make them. Once we start experimenting
with shapes that are not round, the number of possible shapes also
increase tremendously, which may scare most manufacturers of.
Please keep us all posted on how things progress!!
There is sooo much yet to invent!
No, it's like a 2-part putty that once you mix, it hardens like a rock after a couple minutes.
It's called weld stick because it's can hold stuff together like a weld, etc.
The danger of ruining a mp is then minmal,
also you can probably do it over and over
which gives you room to fail a couple of
I fail to see how you can fail . . .
Post some Colorful pictures?
I don't know how well the putty would bond to the MP, though, it'd be cool if you could take it out and put it in when you needed it....
I think you can make it bond.
Just clean mp with alcohol or
Loose bits of putty which you
can take out and put in probably
wonÂ´t work since there are no
corners for these bits to hook
themselves up to in a mp with
rounded shape inside. The risk
of them rotating and ending up
in arbitrary positions is big, I think . . .
