Re: Cast loc fittings
I have the Castloc fittings but the epoxy went bad some years ago. I bought the turnbuckles intending them for a steel cutter I built. I never used them. I would also like to find the epoxy kits but my searches haven't turned up any leads. I haven't any plans for them now.
I am curious about knothead's antipathy toward castloc. Personal experience? Anecdotal? Years past, castloc was popular and many fellow builders used them. I did hear some criticisms, about difficulties getting them right when rigging them and apocalyptic tales of lightening-struck stays and shrouds that failed when the epoxy got fried.
Anyway, I have a set of them for a cutter-rig but no epoxy. I imagine an adhesives outfit could work with you to create an alternative to the original mix. That might be a turnoff given the potential uncertainties.
