    Eastwood Anti-Heat Compound 1 Qt

    Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2012):

    Eastwood Anti Heat Compound is an asset to the average hobbyist, as well as the professional fabricator and restorationist.
    Having been involved with customizing and restoring cars and motorcycles since age 11, I have tried a veritable plethora of products in my time (I'm 50 now, by the way) This is not the first time I 've used this product, just the first time I've had to replace it. The first time I bought/ used it was about 20 years ago. This product is indespensible as a jigging putty to hold small parts in place, is absolutely essential to aid in avoiding warping/ pulling of metals when seaming and welding long beads in sheet metal work, and is possibly the only way to minimize warping/ pulling when performing sheet metal fabrication in stainless steel fabrication and repair. I currently work in a food production facility, and perform all of my work in stainless, and 90% of my welding is TIG, and as anybody who has TIG welded thinner stainless sheet metal will tell you, warping and shrinkage is the bane of your existence. One of the added benefits of this product, is when it is packed across the backside of where your weld bead will run, is that the "sugaring" (oxidization) of the backside of the weld is almost completely eliminated, thus minimizing the need for back shielding the weld with a seperate rig for a shielding gas. When having to weld a stud or a brace in place in the middle of a large exanse of sheet metal, using a generous amount of the putty on the backside of the welded area, as a heat sink, will almost eliminate the pulling and shrinkage normally associated with performing these tasks. If you are a serious hobbyist, a casual shadetree repair guy, or a hardcore build it yourself fabricator like me, this product is a 'must have' in your arsenal of fab/ welding tools, and I have and would reccommend its use to anyone who does any kind of welding.
    Now- go out there and build some stuff, will 'ya?
