    There is some great information in this thread.

    What does Moglice (and the other products) cost, and where do you get it in the USA?

      It's $40 for 100g of the old graphite-based Moglice (FL/P), and $47 for 90g of the Teflon-based Moglice. Problem is, Devitt tacks-on a $25 hazmat fee, so shipping is as much as the Moglice is.

      Last time I bought Moglice from Devitt, I called UPS with the tracking number and asked how much it cost Devitt to ship it, and there was no hazmat fee

      It's literally 2-part epoxy loaded with graphite or teflon -- absolutely nothing hazardous (you don't pay hazmat for shipping Devcon).

      Edit: the other aggravation with Diamant/Moglice is that they package the resin in a tennis-ball pull-top container, so you have to use all of it in one shot. I think that's intentional.

      Devitt is the only US distributor, and you have to order by phone: 877-368-1528

        No. Here, Moglice comes in a little barrel with a screw on lid (or how you would say.).
        50 g cost 11 €
        50 g sounds few, but it makes a lot way. I never bought bigger quantities from them.

          Both containers come like that? The Moglice I get from Devit, the catalyst comes in that little screw-top tub, but the resin itself comes in the pull-top (non-resealable) container.

          I tried pouring out half of each component (by weight) into screw-top containers, and it was a mess.

          That's a lot cheaper than we pay! 22€ for 100g = $28 USD. We should do some horse-trading Nick. You wanted some Dapra Canode, right?

            Yes. The catalyst comes in a tiny Al-bottle, the resin in a plastic cylinder shaped thing (I don't know the word).
            The resin's container is sealed with a tin foil. But that doesn't harm, it doesn't get bad with the screw on top alone.

            I don't think that will save that much. Add 19% VAT + s&h to me and shipping from me to you.

              Well, Nick, I understand your point.....

              if you scrape, but also replace the lost height with Moglice, etc, then you can avoid the hassles of bringing other parts into alignment with the new carriage position. You bring the carriage back where it was instead.

              Excellent for the carriage after the bed is scraped...... Might be possible to bring the carriage back to original height?

              And, it will likely be easier to scrape that material than the iron. Maybe TOO easy? I've never worked with it, and it sounds like one might easily go too far. Especially someone who normally scrapes iron only.

                Garlock Multifil 426 is Teflon impregnated with bronze, that is etched on one for the adhesive. It is available in sheet form in several thicknesses. Whatever you do, DO NOT use this stuff on the slides of a tailstock. I made that mistake many years ago.

                Here is a nice write up by Russ Kepler on Moglice;

                I did a little checling in MTR tady about the final alignments of the carriage and tailstock, Sections 26.55 and 26.65. The slides are scraped.

                  You'll find out how to at the first cut.

                    Matched vee-blocks?

                    Why can't it be done on a T&C or universal grinder magnetic chuck with the quill clamped both in the tail-stock and a good pair of matched vee-blocks?

                      Will that be an expensive lesson? or will I find it is no problem?

                        It's not a problem. Just start like you're testing the edge of the scraper and you'll find the right angle pretty fast.
