    Ha, I was just about to post that I have just ordered some of this and then a quick search brought about the discovery that I saw it here first.

    sugru.com

    Haven't seen it for sale anywhere in Oz

    That's funny Flynn...
    it's the beauty of getting older and more forgetful, if you wait a while everything is new again.
    ;-)

    I remember reading your original post and thinking "that stuff looks useful" but didn't buy it then. Let us know what it's like... at $500/kg it would want to be good but I expect the high kilo rate is justified if you can do something useful with it.

    I look forward to seeing what you have planned.

    I've used it to fix dodgy connection on the thermocouple meter. Worked well.

    Well I bought my wife a Galaxy Tab 3 for her birthday along with a leather folio which was designed for a Tab 2 (ie too big) so I will try using the Sugru to extend the clips that hold the Tab in place.

    This sounds like a useful product.
    I am always trying to do small tricky jobs that seem to require a tool or material I don't have, so this might be the answer.
    I'd be keen to see what you use it for and how effective it is.

    This what I have used mine for. Note of caution - it does have a shelf life, which is extended by keeping in a fridge.

    Very effective. You can find recipes on the web for making a cheap version using Silicone sealant and flour - I tried but it was a failure. The Real McCoy works well.

    Ordered via the UK site, could not find an Oz distributor.
