anyone looking for high temperature ceramic cement?

I have located a source for some high temperature ceramic cement, but the
minimum order of the stuff is $75.00. If I can find enough people
interested, I'll buy a batch and repackage it. All I want to do is break
even. Three (dry) ounces of cement would be $5.00 plus whatever it takes to
ship three ounces to you.

Please email me if you are interested -
I'll allow about a week for responses and then let you all know whether it's
a go or not.

Below is the product information on the cement. Note that is good to well
above cone 10. I have no personal experience with the cement, but it is what
was recommended to me when I was looking for a cement to glue a replacement
protection tube on my OxyProbe.

Dylon Grade C-13 is a single component, chemical setting, inorganic cement.
When mixed with tap water, it develops outstanding bonding characteristics
to metals, ceramics, glass, and quartz. Grade C-13 has a very low sodium
content, does not react with the finest resistance wires, nor does it have a
tendency to migrate through glass or quartz envelopes. It produces superior
electrical insulation properties due to its fine-grained, tightly knit,
high-density structure. Grade C-13 is a moderately good conductor of heat,
is very resistant to thermal fatigue, and can withstand temperatures up to
2800F (1538C). It is also impervious to oils, greases, and resins.
