CAPPED CLAWS-TEETH PENDANTS
What I Need for your cap…

Canada Customs frowns on sending any claws through the mail…. …SO…..

Take 3 IN FOCUS pictures next to a ruler and send me 3 pictures of the claw or tooth that show the three dimensions…height, width and depth.

HOW TO SET THE CAP ON A CLAW
  1. Caps will be rough on the inside
  2. Trim the claw , (File, belt-sander… )to the 3 dimensions given for your cap, as seen in the 1st 2 pictures.,
  3. Make sure it fits….. claw corners are rounded like the cap and tooth and may have to be squished to get the cap on.
  4.  A little loose is OK but test the fit …adjustments will come later.

This is a test run for when the epoxy is applied you will only have 5 minutes before the epoxy starts to set !

  1. Drill small holes, ( 1/16″ or so ) at angles around the top and inside ( 2nd set of pictures).
  2. Apply Mixed epoxy ( 2 part, 5 minute),  it into the holes , top of claw, and inside cap
  3. Put the cap quickly on the claw and close any gaps. or loose fitted sides tight with a rubber mallet, wooden hammer, and block of wood, or, tap on a leather strap to close it, or vice with wooden jaws……anything except smacking it with a chunk of metal ( bare hammer face ).
  4. The Timing will change between each application depending on the amount of hardener used, or temperature, but, after 10-15 minutes the epoxy may be sturdy enough to be cut….you can cut around the cap’s edge and then push the epoxy into any gaps.
  5. Your biggest problem is buffing the cap after all the glue is gone….since you may not have the tools that I use be extra cautious not to scratch the cap when you take off the excess epoxy.
