Liko... i`m not talking about metal gears... only the plastic/nylon

The theory behind it i think is more to do with a more uniform heat up & cool down.

It seemed to work years ago...but like i said the plastic/nylon making techniques would have changed since then.

Boiling composites and nylon adds durability by softening the material. The heat is not as much a factor in this softening as is the introduction of moisture into the material.
