Gun money, Irish late 17th-century emergency coins, contain gunmetal, as worn and scrapped guns were used to make them; but also many other metals, in particular brass and bronze, as people donated pots and pans and other metal objects.
In 1934 Breitling invented the 2nd pusher on a chronograph watch, for quicker resetting, marking the 2.0 of chronograph watches. The Telechron is as well our 2.0 chronograph, featuring a telemeter scale for measuring the distance of sound, as well as date and stopwatch functions. With clear references to vintage watchmaking, paired with modern technology, this is very much the essence of About Vintage.The Telechron Ghost is our contemporary take on something very classic. Our mission was not to yell out loud, but to whisper clearly. With a muted tone-in-tone gray colorway, only broken by a single dash of 805C neon red, held in a sandblasted gun-metal plated 316L stainless steel case in 42mm, we did our best to accomplish this.
Add a contemporary touch to any room with the Alloy indoor ceiling fan, designed with a low-profile silhouette. The 42 inch ceiling fan with light features reversible blades with black and graphite finishes to coordinate with the gun metal ceiling fan.
This compact all-metal rosary is rugged, functional, and portable. It has a meaningful history, as it is a replica of the service combat rosaries issued by the government to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces during WWI.

Using adhesives is a great way to bond metal when soldering and welding are not options. If you've ever tried to join two pieces of metal, then you'll know that it's a little more difficult than bonding paper, wood, or board. Here's what you need to know about metal bonding glue and what you should consider before you take on the task.
Super Glue: Super glue can be a successful choice for bonding metals, provided the two surfaces fit together well. The bond line will need to be tight for the glue to do a good job. Super glue works best when there will be a low impact on the bonded surface after curing. So, it's best not to use it for any parts that are exposed to excessive pressure, like metal joins or clasps. Super glue can set in seconds, so you'll need to work quickly. Prepare the surface and make sure you know how to match the pieces up swiftly and accurately before you apply the glue.
Hot glue (glue guns): A glue gun is only an option when only one of the surfaces is metal. It will also need to be a light metal. Don't use a glue gun when the glue will be exposed to elevated temperatures after curing. Hot glue is manufactured to react with heat.
Polyurethane: Polyurethane adhesive is an excellent option for metal bonding. It is a multipurpose adhesive that doesn't need to be mixed or measured before using. If you're using polyurethane, we recommend you use a clamp to keep both surfaces steady and secure while the glue dries. The bond will be tough and strong after six to eight hours of curing.
Epoxy: Epoxy glue is another good choice for bonding metals. Epoxy is more involved than other types of adhesives, but it generally creates the strongest metal-to-metal bond.
Test your adhesive on a small surface area. If you see that the adhesive forms beads on the surface, then it isn't suitable for bonding that particular type of metal. Try it again after a light abrasion. You should be able to spread the adhesive evenly across the surface. When it distributes evenly without forming beads, then you probably have the right glue for the job.
When you bond metals, you must get the two metal surfaces to bond with each other for a secure, long-lasting bond. If the surface is rusted or painted, and you don't remove the layer, then you're bonding rust to rust or paint to paint. When you subject the bonded metal to any pressure, the paint or rust will stick securely to the adhesive but will pull away from the metal surface, causing the bond to break. The same thing will happen with mold, dust, oil, or any other contaminant. Make sure you remove any surface materials or dirt from the surfaces before you attempt the bond. This helps ensure the tightest and strongest structural bond possible.
