im thinking wall paper?
Not sure if it is. I would assume it heats up. I played with model air planes. The plastic covering was put on,with an iron very similar in apperance. Just a guess.
its for applying the fabric to models planes and real airplanes for that matter.it could also be used for other purposes though im sure.
check out how old the cord is. what kind of substance does it dry or cure?
well when it comes to fabric it is for shrinking
For hiding seams in wall to wall carpet?
I've covered many rc aircraft with something similar
do you touch it to the fabric or prepare a surface with it? is it like a soldering gun?
based on the age of the cord i'd say it was before rc existed.
Maybe I should have said control line aircraft.
Its been around longer.
Most history books attribute Jim Walker as the farther of Control Line Flying. However, according Charles Mackey's research, Oba St. Clair has documented and flown his four-line system as early as 1937.
so, what does this heater do? you apply it to something and it shrinks. how does it do it without melting the object?
I think I saw that you posted in another thread that your father was a cabinetmaker, I am too. I have a similar iron that is use to heat up pre-glued wood edge banding.
You basically "iron" on the banding to the edge of a piece of plywood
Cool. That's it.
ahhhh....like old formica countertops???
then the final touch is to router it clean.
i use to watch him do that!
