    Benjamin-Moore have seriously GOOD Chemists on staff. Their Super-Spec is as easy to use as Rustoleum, but has the wider choice of colours.

    I have several of the Rustoleum "hammer" paints (silver...

    Per our mid-day phone chat, strongly recommend restoring to the OEM exciter.

    Especially since you still have it.

    The threads already cited are a good guide.

    Industrial-grade Yaskawa doesn't seem to make a lot of enemies.

    If nothing else, they apparently use a capacitor bank that lasts longer than the average. Perhaps a LOT longer?

    It should be cheaper, actually.

    That said, it is still a "band aid" and NOT as good as demoing the 'crete and doing it over BETTER and "homogenous" - which can provide greater strength and in...

    Worse that that. it is the WRONG tribe of "band aid".

    Concrete it near-as-dammit ALL "aggregate". Stone, usually.

    The "cementum" is not dried mud. It is the product of a chemical reaction.

    Euro 1,000/day, portal-to-portal, first class air & limo, five star meals and lodging. Or so were our published rates as-of the early 1990's.

    3-4-5 works well with ignorant poly packaging twine and eyelets for a stylus, too. Or metal. Or wood. And rivits or shoulder bolts.

    "BFD" IOW.

    "Nature" is actually helping..... for a change.

    "Six stealth helicopters with laser-guided Hellfire missiles in the dark of a moonless night" is a more impressive answer that doesn't COST any more - given it is just as wrong most of the time?

    Not sure if you can FIND one, but I'd suggest Halco, Dalrae, from "back in the day" or Rusnok/Electro-Mechano, which were made until rather more recently.
