Hey everyone I am new here and I registered because of this thread but I was looking around the site and I know I will enjoy more of it. Looks awesome. Cadman could you PM the instructions/tutorial for making your fluid bed. Would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

I personally use one for a 55 gal aquarium. It may be overkill, but I got the air when I need it. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure which size pump I have but it has 2 connections on the pump and I teed the hose before going into the fluid bed. It works fine on a 2" bed but doesn't do much on the 3".

A micron is .001 mm. Or about .00004 inch.

Another new guy here. What a great site.
I've already been enlightened on the topic of fluid beds from this post but I have a newby question if it's Ok? I'm interested in making a fluid bed to powder paint some jigs bodies up to 2 ounces for Lake Trout jigging. These jig bodies are up to 2 1/2 inches in length, just long slender trolling sinkers. Do I use a 3" cup and try to lay these long bodies down in the powder or should I make a taller/smaller diameter cup and put them in verticle?
Also, cadman I'd like to join all the others in requesting a copy of your information on fluid beds. I've seen several ideas on making them but it appears that your's is time proven so if it's not out of line for a newby I'd sure appreciate you sending me your information. My Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Can one mix powder paint colors sucessfully, or is it just a mess?
Posted 25 January 2010 - 08:42 AM
Yes you can mix powder paint colors together, just write down your ratios so you can remember them next time. One other thing in mixing powder paints. No matter what colors you mix you will never get a true pigment (ie blue and yellow = green). You will get a shade of green, but in order to lets say have a solid green pumpkin, you have to have the powder pigment made.
