    What brilliant stuff! Half a kilo of what look like small white BB pellets. Put some in a bowl, pour on boiling water, they go clear and stick together in a blob, scoop it out and you can form or mould it into any shape you like. When it cools (or you run it under the cold tap) it solidifies into a hard, slightly flexible polypropylene type plastic. Excellent for minor repairs, knife handles, all sorts of stuff. And it's totally reusable,, just put it in boiling water again.

    All I've made with it so far are a couple of dog toys, and a decent handle for holding veg when slicing on my mandolin (some panel pins embedded in it to grip properly.)

    When I used to race slot cars I car bodies out of it, it's similar in chemical composition to hot melt glue.

    Got some myself, handy when I lose a plastic cover off the end of a chisel and I just melt some granules and make another.
    Also it makes little protectors for the inside of the tool pouch pockets that hold my nailpunches, it stops them from wearing holes into the little pockets so the tool pouch lasts much longer.

    Bit worried about pouring boiling water into my ear. Other than that, sounds great.
