Re: Chipped my F1 hongni

I did it. Just some word of advice. Do not oven cure anything at high temperatures. Take the longer route and do it at room temp. Hold the piece in place for 10ish mins before letting go and curing at room temp. When you put it in the oven at 50 degrees things expand, and the piece will move out of ...

Re: Chipped my F1 hongni

According to the specs for the epoxy it said minus 70 to 140 degrees. I'm not sure if I should put it in the oven at 250 degrees

Re: Chipped my F1 hongni

ive stuck it on and put it in the oven for curing.

it looks like it has moved a little out of place when i checked on it. I'm sure it was good when i stuck it on.
guess i have to leave it now.
does anyone know whether the epoxy will go hard once it is blended or can i keep it if it is air tight?

Re: Chipped my F1 hongni

I found a you tube video with a boy showing us how to make epoxy. He heated up pine and spruce resin and mix charcoal to it. He said to use it just heat it up and it will go from solid to runny , and it can make things water proof.
So Im not sure if boiling water would affect it or not

Re: Introduce Yourself

How long have you been drinking tea? since I was two years old, which was around 1985. I asked my grandad for some tea, because i saw the whole family drinking it. They looked like they were enjoying it as they were slurping on their tea. What kind of tea do you drink? I drink oolong, white tea, wu...

Even if it was in contact, the epoxy should be inside the crack and very tight with almost no exposure. In my opinion the exposure i...

Re: Chipped my F1 hongni

Yes, looks like that expoxy can take 145c, much hotter than any tea will need. Your pot is really nice and worth repairing, I love that compact shape with Yù lì 玉笠 (rain hat). I have a similar one by Liu Xiu Di in zini clay. If you have all the pieces that broke off -I’ve successfully used J-B Weld...
