My plastic crack dealer showed me a new way to do stretched sprue today. (he comes up with little things like this to keep the junkies happy, focused, and amused)
Take two sections of sprue and melt them over a candle. Get em all soft and on fire. Blow the burning plastic out and quickly mash the two melted, gooey, ends together. Then with a steady and even stroke, pull them apart. You will get a string of sprue about hair thick and will make a nice a/c radio antenae.
Personaly I was sold on the idea of corona wire (from laser printers or xerox machines) and will not go back to sprue for this application.
BTW. For all those that care.....I do not reccomend this. It is fire and as Frankenstein's monster said... fire bad. Melting plastic gives off noxious fumes and is not healthy. Do not try this at home kids and not without adult supervision. Adequate ventilation should be used, do not do this near flamable 'splody stuff. Do not use around pets or children. Discard containers in appropriate disposal receptacle.
(Think that covers all the disclaimers for our litigacious readers?)
