    Epoxy question

    There is an issue with hospital syringes they tend to have a tiny amount of silicone lube on the rubber, you can have several be fine but then get one with a bit more and your topcoat will do crazy things, thin finish it dimples like crazy, thicker stuff may fish eye, trust me I have had every issue under the sun till I stop swiping hospital syringes....you can buy the correct ones from rod building supply companys or maybe LPO....

    a good epoxy review

    One thing about bubbles is that if you see them at least you know the stuff is well mixed, they are easily dealt with, a cheap heat gun from harbor freight on the low setting and a turner and the bubbles are gone, I'd rather deal with the bubbles than poorly mixed epoxy.

    Is there anyway to fix my lure?

    There is a fella on a crankbait site that says to remove the white powder from the outside all ya have to do is take a hair dryer and heat it a bit and it comes off, as for the inside not sure if its possible to get that clean without destroying it.

    Do you build your baits as 2 piece or are they built 1 piece?
