Awesome stuff Bill...thanks very much.

Good to see you posting videos again! I can't tell you how many times I've watched them over and over and funny thing is I always learn something.

Impressive battery of Flexcoat rod dryers you have!

That's great, I like it more than doing another turks head. Those chucks you have that allow you to stop the rod are a great idea, homemade, or on the market?

Thank you for putting this up Bill.
The 3 tips I picked up were.

Be sure to mix plenty of finish

Use a larger brush that holds more finish

Work fairly fast.
My last rod I used a much larger brush. Went alot faster. And seemed to do a better job.
Thanks again Bill.

Isn't that beard heading down toward the epoxy zone? With skills like mine, I'd be cutting clumps out by now.

Thanks for sharing this. Very generous with your time.

I'll do one shortly, my grandson is here for the summer so I have a camera guy again lol
I just read your article about painting blanks.
I'm considering just painting a short masked segment of the blank white, for under the line guides. I want to later do a color marble pattern over the white, with color thread wraps over the feet. Can I just use the primer for the white background, and cover with epoxy? Or do I need to use the Max 2K Gloss? Or cover with white thread wrap? Unless the white primer needs to be "protected" from the epoxy clear coat, it'd be nice to be able to skip the Max 2K Gloss step. What do you think?
Thanks..
