  1. I use West System in my basement where it is between 70-75 degrees with a dehumidifier and it's good to handle after applying in 8-10 hours but starts to set while mixing in 15-20 minutes. I used it outside in my shed when it was about 85-90 degrees and it set in about 5 minutes or less. Not good. Brought the whole project back into the basement where it will be permanently.
  2. Oh wow. I really wish I could buy this from you!! What an amazing deal.
  3. Hahahaha! Kurt would've LIVED in it. That thing would have been trashed by us in college. haha.
  4. I have the 2001 Excursion XLT v-10 6.8L as a weekend/family roadtrip/fishing roadtrip vehicle and I friggin love it. It doesn't get driven much so we shouldn't have many issues. We bought it used and sent it to an auto shop to be looked over. Ended up spending about $2000 and it was well worth it. Great for kayak trips as well. I've gotta look into a rod holder and kayak rack for it. Her name is Beatrice.
  5. I lived there for about 12 years before moving back home to Virginia 4 years ago. 9" sluggos (white & black), 3/4 - 1.5oz. white bucktails with a 4" white trailer, mother of pearl and black over purple (blurple) 7" bomber or sp minnow, and 7" tsunami sandeels will have you set for Nantucket beaches. Also deadly dicks 1-2oz. for albie season, and some ranger lures for the bluefish.
  6. Holy Christ. Beautiful plugs!!!
  7. That's the elmer's glue smell I'm smelling. It's acetic anhydride or super strong vinegar.
  8. tape to wrap your fingers. Casting heavy plugs all day will rip it open.
  9. I definitely wear a mask when turning any wood, but before I turned them I made sure: "Accoya® wood is non-toxic and 100% recyclable. ... Accoya is made from legally harvested wood from well managed sustainable sources including FSC®, PEFCTM and other regionally certified woods. The Accoya wood manufacturing process is non-toxic and adds nothing to the wood that does not already naturally occur in it."
  10. There's a lumber yard in Doswell, VA that has it, which is about an hour away from me so I will give them a call sometime soon. I just read the article you mentioned and it said the Lowe's is interested. That would be great.
  11. I couldn't find the base wood either. I compare the weight to clear pine, but turning and sanding it is like cedar. It has a elmer's glue smell when turning, but it cuts awesome. I'm definitely a big fan and will check locally to purchase more. I know it is on the pricey side.
  12. My buddy sent me a box of accoya wood to turn and it turned and sanded great. I made a peanut danny, sandeel, and fast sinking needle out of if for my first batch. I've included a video on it for everyone to check out if you want. If you can get your hands on it, give it a try. Anyone have any experience with it?
  13. I need to take advantage of that this fall/winter. I'm in NoVA but would like to do some wading on the eastern shore
  14. To replace the treble and make the plug single hook and keep the action the same or close. Started by Dave Anderson and Jerry Audet.
  15. Thanks Houston! I'm giving it a try on a bunch of plugs. Can't hurt!
