Has anyone tried this for small project?  In theory it sounds like a worthy idea.  markf

Wow that looks really good Shocked but it'll never replace solder in my book Smiley working with a burning hot rod of metal and shiny molten solder metal is much cooler Wink

It's nothing new really, they were using something very similar to attach the original carbon lamp filaments to the platinum lead in wires.

Interesting though, it could be handy for certain applications that make soldering impracticable. Smiley

It should do, depending on what the 'glue' is made with...  The ends of the filament are pretty cool compared to the glowing part, as the heat is radiated off by the lead in wires.

From what I can find out about this stuff, it seems it has a fairly high resistance, but not too high that it would cause problems for a filament lamp, and it seems to be able to handle fairly high temperature (has been heated to 200 deg C with out problems - improved the resistance too). It also is water based, so after the glue is dried I would heat the glue in an oven to dry out any remaining moisture, and also any other parts of the glue that may evaporate at high temperature, which could contaminate the bulb (as I recall, this was a step that was also done with the original carbon lamps...).

So it seems like a good option to test, and it's cheap enough too. Smiley

Would be very interested to see the binder in this.  I'm experimenting with pure carbon with binder that's acceptable to 3000c.  You never know what you can run into until the needs pops up.  Trying to marry this with carbon fiber cloth to produce something more resilient.  Carrier appears to be Furfuryl alcohol which aids in the bonding.  Haven't had access to the autoclave lately so those experiments are on hiatus.  Was just today thinking about this application for making a few leyden jars for a wimhurst i'm about to build.

Where the hell was this stuff 2 years ago when I killed my Steampunk PDA Elesa. I wonder how fine you can glue with this stuff.
