It has been a few decades since I've looked at that kind of equipment so I Googled it and found this:

Amazon.com: LTP5000D 50A Air Inverter Pilot Arc Plasma Cutter Dual Voltage 110/220VAC 1/2" clean Cut: Power & Hand Tools

It's looking like a plasma cutter is actually affordable for a home shop.

Not sure it would be the right tool to cut an accurate slot.
Probably a milling machine would be better.

Sure is need little box for 500 bucks though

I wonder if the heat would change metalurgy and cause stainless to corrode faster? Maybe use a water jet cutter- that is what is typically used on thick steel plates.

A milling machine would probably do a better job, but someone skilled and with a good plasma cutter can do a good job.

Hi Maine,
I ordered your tape and got it within 2 days...Thanks for the super fast shipping!

Have a main question before doing the re-bedding of my deck hardware...

On Pg 3 of your instructions under the "After Tightening" section, you mention in Step 2 to only tighten once...

Well, I'm a bit confused because you mention early on on pg 2 under the "Clean Up Butyl Ooze" section you mention to take your time in tightening and to tighten in a "2-Step" process...

I am assuming your instructions are based on whether you're bedding a stanchion or deck cleat versus a single screw through the deck, and that is the difference in tightening techniques you recommend using with butyl tape? Is this assumption correct?

Tighten once is only a description differentiating between letting a "marine sealant" cure then tightening it it two steps, pre-cure and post cure. Butyl does not change or cure so you can only tighten it in the same single state hence "tighten once" vs. the two step method..

Tighten once also refers to using the countersink method with a marine sealant, not just butyl, where you'd only tighten once to full tight then let it cure.

You really do want to tighten it in small increments when using butyl and you'll get a much better outcome. You are not however waiting for it to cure so you can tighten it a second time. Just wait for some to squish out then tighten a little more..

Sorry for the confusion.

Maine....I have been using your wonderful instructions on my deck hardware in Tasmania Australia. Love it. I have some black butyl which is sort of like tape but thicker. It,s mildly sticky but you can work it well with your hands. It's black and I am getting a bit os stick from herself that I should ne using white. Does butyl come in white...dunno. I'll google it. Meanwhile, can you make an exception and send me some of your tape. I won't be wounded if you can't. Anyway, fabulous information from this thread.

Butyl does come in white but is not the same quality as the filers needed to make it white change the consistency some.

Wow.

I just rebedded my hardware last summer. I agree...stay away from black butyl type.

I wish I had referred to this article before I did my rebed job. Thanks for the great work.

Butyl Tape

Looking for a way to seal my windows on a Beneteau First 35S5, could this be used for window bedding?

Thanks
