Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Hi George! Thank's for the tips on the spray paint nozzles! When I asked the question. When I'm finished painting with a particular paint type or color.. Should I turn the rattle can or can's up side down to spray out the excess paint so that I won't waste paint by letting the paint dry out clogging...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

P.S, I forgot ... if the paints are compatible I generally wait 8 to 12 hours depending if I'm in a hurry or not. The paint won't be "cured" as "cured" and "dry" are to different things. Waiting "7 days" or until the paint is gassed off is something I'd do if I was going to rub it out with a Polish...

Re: Coffin Nail Racing - Car Photos

Wow!! Rattle can paint jobs.
Sure had me fooled with the airbrush though!

Like you I have an air brush set up but haven’t had the time set it up as well.
Maybe this winter I’ll have more shop time to do so.

Adding alcohol to graphite

Hard to say for sure Speedster! It could all stem from this lecture http://www.pinewoodderbyphysics.com/pdf%20files/Lecture%2016.pdf Car Lecture under lecture 16 Or some different web sites . There are some good write ups about it as well. http://www.maximum-velocity.com/pinewood-derby-blog/2015/01/...

Adding alcohol to graphite

Well Speedster,
Some believe that it makes a paste to coat the axles and that it’s sticks to the axle when dry.

Or that the wet mixture packs into the wheel bores better.
And when drys forms a small graphite bushing.
Hope that helps.

Not sure what a suitable replacement would be. http://www.res-rich.com/cherrycorp/e51.htm https://media.digikey.com/photos/Cherry%20Switch%20Photos/Cherry%20Switch-E51-60B.jpg :idk: maybe https://www.adafruit.com/produc...
