    Item Description:

    Building time is here. WE need to get those planes balanced.

    I like to think of our Steel Powder as the opposite of micro balloons, although, unlike micro balloons, it actually strengthens the epoxy it is mixed with. It is actually a very fine, almost dust steel powder. The density makes it so nice for our use, and is the reason it mixes so well. It sticks well to whatever it is applied to because it is epoxy base. It 'layers' very well also as you add batches to achieve your balance.

    Use 15 or 20 minute epoxy for plenty of time to thoroughly mix the batch. Keep adding the powder until the batch takes on a dull appearance and is the consistency of paste, and you have enough powder in the mix. It will still be fluid enough to pour into cowl rings, or into the nose of your fuselage. It can also be brushed on. I like to set the cowl on it's nose, pour the Steel Powder mix into the ring and let it level itself.

    It can also be poured into paper form made out paper towel rolls, for instance, and then after cured, it can be sliced in a band saw or cut by hand into wafers of weight that can be attached with screws. No heat, and no dangerous fumes as with lead.

    The formed batch can easily be drilled, sawed, even drilled and taped. It does not clog tools like the soft lead will.

    I find that USPS flat rate shipping boxes works great for distributing Powder. I get 7lbs per box. For this I ask $18.20 per box and that includes the shipping to anywhere in the lower 48. I can ship out of the country, but the weight limit becomes 4lbs per box, and the shipping cost goes up. Please ask for an exact quote for international shipments.

    The price has seen a modest increase over the last couple years but this is due to the increase in packaging and shipping.

    Unfortunately, I can not combine orders to and save shipping. It needs to ship in the small USPS flat rate box for the most economical shipping cost.

    Pay-pal is fine and I never add a % to those who use it. Other forms of payment are fine as well. Specify when ordering.

    I would ask that you please be patient with me if I can't get back to you right away. I have a small construction business with my sons that can be demanding. I'll do my best to communicate and get orders out.

    Please ask if I have missed anything.

    WOW, that was supposed to be two day priority shipping.

    Still, glad you got it. Is it all there? You should have at least 7lbs of powder. Any signs of damage?

    best regards,
