Monthly Science: End of the Cheese Slicer Epoxy Coating

The corrosion growing on our long-suffering cheese slicer finally ruptured its epoxy coating:

Most of the epoxy remains in good shape, but it’s obviously not the right hammer for this job.

Having recently spotted my tiny sandblaster, I think I can clear off the corrosion and epoxy well enough to try again with good old JB Weld epoxy. It’s not rated for underwater use, so I don’t expect long-term goodness, but it’ll be an interesting comparison.

Bonus: the slicer will start with a uniform gray surface!
