  1. How long do you leave lures rotating?

    I've never used etex before so I don't have any experience on how long to leave them on the drying wheel. I use Devcon 2 epoxy (going to try Bob Smith epoxy next) and usually leave my baits on the drying wheel between 4-5 hours. I than turn the drying wheel off and leave them on the wheel overnight to continue to fully harden overnight.
  2. No More Masking Tape On Lip!

    Do you have any seeping of paint under the tubing where you trimmed lip where it joins the body?
  3. No More Masking Tape On Lip!

    Welcome! What size tubing do you use?
  4. KBS clear coat

    How about a jar with metal latch and seal(see pic). You can get these cheap at Hobby Lobby / Michael's. Saw someone in a video using this type of jar to hold their clear coat and mentioned they haven't had any problems. They place some saran wrap over the opening before closing.
  5. KBS Brushing Question

    Been considering trying KBS and moving from Devcon 2 Epoxy. Been reading here and online about KBS Diamond Coating and came across some info on KBS site that KBS Diamond Coating can be brushed on. Wondering if anyone brushes instead of dipping or spraying? For those who dip how do you keep the coating from pooling in the hook hangers while its hang drying? Wondering how much gathers at bottom of bait while hanging. Thanks.
  6. Does anyone know how you go about painting this pattern? I'm assuming its done using either/both a stencil or netting. Thanks.
  7. Was wondering if anyone here uses one these AB to paint. Iwata Pistol Trigger or the Iwata Mini. How do they compare to the convential dual action ABs?
  8. Need Help Indentifying This Rebel

    I got some better close up pics of the bill. Still can't make out what it says. My friend said he bought it a Bass Pro in the last couple of years. He said he thought it was a Rebel Mini R.
  9. Need Help Indentifying This Rebel

    I don't have the actual lure in hand. The pics I posted are the pics that were sent to me. All I can tell from the pic is the the lip has "Rebel (?) R" on it. The Rebel and the R are visible...the word before the R is not very readable in pic. The 2nd pic shows the lip.
  10. Which Rebel R lure is this? Been ask to find some and paint for a person. Thanks.
  11. Another Devcon 2 Question

    Been using D2T since I started painting. I just squeeze out lines of equal length and then mix. Haven't had a problem with this method yet.
  12. D2T Multiple Coats ...

    I'm wanting to clear some RC 1.5 KOs first with D2T before painting to create a smooth surface like found on KVD 1.5s. Then I would apply a 2nd coat of clear after painting. I was wondering if the weight of multiple coats of D2T would change the action of the crankbait. Also, how many coats of D2T do you suppose you can apply to a crankbait before it begins to have an effect on the crankbait?? Thanks.
  13. Method For Fixing Small Blemish

    After sanding out the blemish I'm left with a "dull" flat shine where the blemish was. Someone suggested using car wax to polish out the "dull" shine. I'm using D2T...wondering if a wax or polish would work on expoxy. Any thoughts???
  14. Wanted to know if anyone had a method for fixing small blemishes in clear coat? There are times when I get a really good clear coat but there may be a small air bubble or trash that I missed. I usually just sand down the blemish with very fine wet sandpaper and then clear coat again. Looking for a way to fix blemish without having to apply 2nd clear coat. Thanks.
