..however it can be most useful albeit with a slight twist to the method. Whilst following the instructions on the packet also add as much fine pewter (either very fine filings or sieved oxide) as the mixture can possibly take.
In re-fixing a handle attachment this is then applied to the cleaned break, the surplus wiped off with kitchen paper or scraped off with the fine end of a pointed metal nail file and some pewter dust scattered to cover the sheen of the Araldite pewter mix at the site of the repair.
The elastic bands are put round to hold it together for 24 hours to set. After setting and removal of the bands then use the fine attachment shown with the Dremel which is a small steel brush to remove any surplus or dirty bits, clean up the join with finest wire wool or wet and dry and the repair is done and not apparent other than to a most experienced eye - which because of the presence of the pewter ‘dust’ is usually uncertain as to what has happened, if seen at all.
Is this a deception or simply an attempt to improve and save?, no different to electrolytic cleaning perhaps.
