    I've used it for a few other uses as well - some of them well off the beaten track!

    As a locksmith, I have a key casting kit, lets me take an impression of the key to form a mould and make a exact copy of said key! Right out of the CIA playbook, eh?

    I've also cast nuts and bolts from it, using two-part silicone to make a mould, making fasteners that would predictably fail at certain temps. Worked great!

    Have heard of using it to mould around high precision parts as a sacrificial clamping surface so as to not cause damage from clamping. My old boss used some to replicate a British car club(?) Mediation for his Austin 10.

    Yes, I've used it for clamping myself. It's especially useful for clamping castings with no reference surface so the initial surface can be machined

    "Mediation"? Should that be medallion?

    Until auto-correctors become fully conscious to the point of understanding the material to which they are applied, they are perfectly useless. There is no electronic substitute for proof-reading.
