    low price hvlp gun ?

    The Talon has a fan head option but I would put it on a siphon fed brush with a .66 needle/nozzle so you can mount the whole bottle a spray to your hearts content. I have one and it works just fine don't quite remember the specs but I think fan pattern is over 3 inches Edited just now by gone2long

    Tube Dipping - Video

    Hey guys sorry I passed mine on when I went to tube molds but it's quite simple to make google "fabric blades" they are round and somewhere around 2-2 1/2 inches in diameter you alternate blade then a washer to as wide as needed and put them on a small narrow paint roller then just get yourself a plastic cutting board or cutting platform of choice and have at it https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiav4DvlurZAhWXSw0KHY2dBioYABAQGgJxYg&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESEeD2QG-ROh0YaAlazdJIUHMm&sig=AOD64_3HF4QilnzEInxGZqG0TBweDlzaSA&ctype=46&q=&ved=0ahUKEwjX6_rulurZAhUtSN8KHQjiD2AQ9aACCOgB&adurl=https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiav4DvlurZAhWXSw0KHY2dBioYABAQGgJxYg&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESEeD2QG-ROh0YaAlazdJIUHMm&sig=AOD64_3HF4QilnzEInxGZqG0TBweDlzaSA&ctype=46&q=&ved=0ahUKEwjX6_rulurZAhUtSN8KHQjiD2AQ9aACCOgB&adurl=https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiav4DvlurZAhWXSw0KHY2dBioYABAOGgJxYg&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESEeD2QG-ROh0YaAlazdJIUHMm&sig=AOD64_1RaHAVyai7ia4DkrRFXYTeZJsjAA&ctype=5&q=&ved=0ahUKEwjX6_rulurZAhUtSN8KHQjiD2AQ9aACCOEB&adurl=https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwiav4DvlurZAhWXSw0KHY2dBioYABAOGgJxYg&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESEeD2QG-ROh0YaAlazdJIUHMm&sig=AOD64_1RaHAVyai7ia4DkrRFXYTeZJsjAA&ctype=5&q=&ved=0ahUKEwjX6_rulurZAhUtSN8KHQjiD2AQ9aACCOEB&adurl=

    Try a roller cutter you won't go back to your old way, bit expensive up front but well worth it the blades are for fabric cutters put them on a small paint roller and bam you got yourself a production cutter.

    Apply Devcon with fingers??

    Well lets hope ya'll don't forget and go pick your nose
  6. All good advice so far I would only add a couple pointers I kept a piece of pvc pipe next to the booth and tested colors on that you get different results from the same paint over different base coats and don't get discouraged and overthink your decisions of color choice once you've clear coated you will find that makes the paint pop and don't forget to get micro glitter and play with adding small amounts to your clear coat you get amazing results

    Custom baits smelling and oily

    Sounds more like when they were made the plastic was not completely mixed only time I have ever heard of oily plastics is when its not mixed thoroughly from the start but who knows that's a long time to be sitting and breaking down

    Airbrush needle

    You may also try rubbing the threads of the cone/tip on a candle or some use chapstick and reassemble you are clearly having an air leak backing up in the cup but as stated it you split the cone/tip it can be difficult to see

    Anyone know what happened to bearsbaits?

    I've asked the same thing I do know he has a health issue but it appears to be enough to shut down the business, the forum didn't even have a holiday greeting from any of the members it's all but shut down, the website for sure I hope he makes a recovery he was in it from the begining but it doesn't look good.

    Any news on Bear?

    Sad day when Bear has to shut down the store looks like one of the good guys has been forced to shut down hope he's well.

    Defective Blanks

    All that and no need to out the seller, good job glad it worked out for you and hopefully a little more quality control on the seller's part!

    Defective Blanks

    The whole point to revealing a vendor who cannot come to grips with the fact he may have provided inferior product absolutely deserves a call out especially if he flat out refuses to discuss the matter, the simple fact he never had issues with that blank tells me he does not look at the product just counts and ships or worse and is just a middle man who does not even touch the product, this is not about degrading someone on the forum it is educating the unsuspecting that they may choose to look elsewhere so I'll digress and ask where then should this be posted as it's clear that the OP is not interested in a good ole internet donnybrook just a little consideration and discussion about a substandard product.

    Thermo Couple parts list?

    You can try Chris Archer over at ultra molds he had a hand I think with this system if anything he can probably source them for you

    Airbrush paint booth

    No the vapor from those chemicals is what is the hazard as recommended I would cease using that setup immediately and go with the fan in the window if the distance is not good enough with that I wouldn't even do that if you're wearing a respirator you should be fine for the few days it will take to get the right setup

    AVID BASS TACKLE... Bad biz practice

    I agree that's why the op updated the post, unfortunately he was forced to do so, I sure would like to know to make a informed decision I can assure you if somebody wants a mold he's selling their going for it but at least they know the risk and to be quite honest I may be wrong but I don't remember ever reading an apology post from any vendor called out so it speaks volumes with how they operate and take my word for it the fanboy's have already informed him of this thread so the possibility of not knowing is slim to none!
