Hi guys. I need some help. I have been using the plastic brushes that you buy at Wally world to apply D2T. Well they do not carry them any more and I have not found them on the web yet. Do any of you have a place that you order them from?

I use acid flux brushed from Home Depot, in the plumbing section. 24 cents each, not a bad deal.

I use artist brushes and like them much better than the acid brushes. They give me a smoother stroke and bubbles in the finish aren't as much trouble as with the acid brushes. At least for me anyway.

This Finn got 144 brushes on Ebay for $10. They are hair whereas Depots' are sort of a synthetic, maybe a nylon. Another question on Devcon/2 part quick set epoxies.....are there any that wont yellow, even after years???? Is it the sun that breaks down the epoxy color? Thanks, Bruce.

My opinion only: Yes, I think that the sun is what yellows the Devcon. I tried to spray automotive clear over the devcon to see if it would still yellow and it has not so far. I have been wanting to try some of the UV Blast stuff to see if that would keep it from yellowing. It does take a long time to see a bait start to yellow. I have some that are three to for years old that has not yellowed yet.

There are top coats that have UV inhibitors in them that stops yellowing. Dick Nites is one such top coat, but it is not an epoxy. Whether or not there are any epoxies with UV inhibitors in them I don't know.

Here is what I use....cheap and disposable.... save the handles and you can use them to mix your epoxy.

Look around your local hobby shop, I found 20 brushes for $1.99 at Michael's in the kids paint area.
