What is the name of the putty stuff used to pack around moulds when Babbitt is poured into the mould?
I am going to have an attempt at babbitting the fourth bearing in the T transmission.
Tony, I use a product from Eastwood called Anti-heat.
i agree with Mike regarding the material "Anti-Heat" product # 31042 from Eastwood ...i also recommend the "Tinning Butter" # 31043 for tinning ...Eastwoods # is 800-345-1178 ...i have used both for years with great results ...always an optimist ...gene french
I use a product made in Newzealand by
CRC, called Maniseal, exhaust cement, buy it by the box as I do a lot of babbitting.
A tube of something like this from your local auto shop would be the cheapest way to go for a one of job.
Thanks guys and the MTFCA.
Wish Kent a New Zealand brand wood stove had not been pushed out of business by union demands. My home is warm now because of that stove.
When I worked in the Aerospace Industry, we used a product called "BabbitRite". We called it "BearSh*t" because that's just what it looked like.
It was a dark brown, oily, fibrous, putty-like material and although aircraft assembly tooling had transitioned from using Babbitt to aluminum-filled epoxies to cast parting planes for removable sections when I was working in the industry, it worked very well for building dams to contain curing liquid epoxy.
It's reusable too.
I've used the same as Mike S. except it was called Monkey S.... by some instead. It worked very good.
