i have read that devcon makes a good top coat.i never tryd it.did any of you?what do you think about using it as an adhesive for screw in line and hook eyes?

CLU uses 1500 lb Devcon on screw eyes, etc. Its a pretty standard practice.

Devcon epoxies are an adhesive first & foremost.....
it just happens to make a durable clearcoat also

Use the 5 minute epoxy for lips, weights, and screw eyes. Use the long cure 2500psi for clearcoating. Of course the rest of the guys on this site know that I really don't have an opinion about Devcon vs. other clearcoats. But I kinda like the stuff.

Acri CryL huh? Your spelling is alittle off isn't it JT ? You bet bud.... the EPA found your stuff. When you run out I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have. I may not be able to paint as well as you.... but I can clearcoat the hell out of a bait.

I saw the devcon the other day like you bought which has the needle that mixes the devcon when it comes out. That is the wrong deal unless you can afford the tips. Get the devcon 5 minute that has a re closeable cap. Hope this helps.

I was wondering what he was talkin about
Devcon is packaging syringes with a premix tip?
Yeah Gary, if you run out of syringe tips just dispense equal amounts onto a sheet of paper or a dixie cup, whatever & use a toothpick, or similar to mix it well, then use a brush to apply.
if youre quick enough you can clean that brush in some acetone & reuse it awhile.
Check the knowledge base for a tutorial on clearcoating with FlexCoat:
its a different epoxy, but the process is the same.
Oh yeah & stay away from the 5min version for clearcoat, its fine for an adhesive, but will yellow over time. use the slow set (30 min) for clearcoating.

if you are gluing weights, lips and hangars in a large number of baits the 5 minute with the 2 tips is great, but for normal use the regular kind is best as mentioned. The mixing it does in that tip is unbelievable, you really wouldnt think it would actually mix it but it does. I used about 1/64 of the tube i bought with my two tips lol. I only got that one because it was all they had at the time and i wanted the lip and hangars in a prototype i was working on.
