Epoxy for briolette/bail


#1

Hello All,

I have a 16 ct. sillimanite briolette that I am going to make a PMC
silver cap/bail for and I was wondering what is the best epoxy for
attaching the bail to the tip of briolette.  I had been told
Devcon 2-TON Epoxy S-31 was the best but I am having trouble finding
it, so I as looking for a good alternative.

Thanks, Alex.

Hi, I just got some Devcon S-31 to try it out, got it from a fellow
on ebay. His seller name is hobby_supplies and Washita Blade and Tool
is his store name. bretj773@aol.com is his email in case you aren’t
an ebay person. It’s only 2.86 ea. and he sent it sent it super duper
FAST. Hope that helps you out, Carol

I don’t know if its the Devcon you are looking for, but Indians
Jewelers Supply Company 1-800-545-6540 sells Devcon Plastic Steel
from their catalog. My catalog shows it on page 105. It is 80%
steel/20%epoxy resins and modifiers. I don’t see anything specifying
2-TON Epoxy S-31. So maybe, maybe not.

Sometimes you just have to go to the source.

http://www.devcon.com/

Find out where they distribute your product. Another excellent
company to work with is MSC.

They often charge less than jewelry supply companies.
