Thanks for the tips on using it to glue pieces together. I was kind of thinking about heat bending some small pieces for reinforcement. Maybe something like this.
Fyi, on the disk repair, I was thinking about a last effort to recover data type thing. There have been several threads about polishing a disk to recover important data or restore a movie that hasn’t been backed up. Sooner or later everyone gets a disk (movie, software or personal data), where there is no backup, and the disk wont read. I was thinking along the lines of if all else fails, melt the surface, and immediately make a new copy. I didn’t think about it getting into the edge and causing delamination. I have heard its pretty nasty when a disk explodes in a drive. Seeing that they spin at 25,000rpm at 16x speed, maybe it would be good to use a drive that has been set to read at slower speeds (like they do to quiet a drive in an htpc).
