I'm curious where you found it for $10 a 1/2 gallon, Mike. Well, pot goo is made from
polymers I think, and that's why it would fix it. The guy that invented the pot goo that
tapco used still has some. Boy, that's sticky stuff! Don't think I knew it was used in nail
care, but I guess it makes sense for thinning it. I seem to remember
that the first tapco pots had aluminum shafts and then they had nylon shafts.
No melting as far as I remember. You can't buy new pots of this type (CTS) off the
shelf, but, if needed, Jory the tapcofixer probably has stock.
: Thanks for your feedback. I looked through the internet for Dibutyl phthalate. And I found it. But the sources I found wanted something like $10 for a half gallon. I'm sorry ... I didn't tell you I'm incredibly cheap. Some o f the literature indicates that it is used in fixing polymers. No chance it will melt the shaft to the body of the pot is there? Another common application listed was for nail care. Do you suppose I might find it on the health & beauty shelf of a drug sto re?
