    Default Coherent Radiation 212 Power Meter

    I just found one of these old meters cheap, without a detector. It has a green case and naugahyde on the sides, and old stickers on it documenting battery changes dates it from the '70s. Does anyone remember what year Coherent dropped the "Radiation" from their name?

    I was going to use 5 minute epoxy to stick the edges of the naugahyde back down. Does anyone have a better adhesive recommendation? This is a great old meter. Now I have to find one of those old detectors with the enormous fins, with its original stand!

    It would be best to have something slightly flexible for a proper fix. I would highly suggest 3M's Super 77. You'll have to mask off non stick areas well as it's a spray adhesive. Great stuff though.

    Way back they used Contact Cement to glue leather and
    vinyl imitation leather to enclosures...

    I've used the 3M 77 before but like 300EVIL said it is messy..

    Ya know... another route would be to spray some in a disposable dish outside then apply it with a small brush before the solvents dissipate too fast. That would be a little less messy.
