Glass Rod Quesitons

Picked up a Lamiglas MB 84 2F that I will wrap spinning. I would like to know what finish others have chosen for glass. I have Aftcote and Flex Coat High Build to choose from. Is one brand better then the other over the long haul?

 

I am debating where or not to use underwrap under the guides. If I elect not to go with underwrap will I risk premature cracking from just using size D thread to attach the guides? I am using the new fuji guides that come pre ground. First time using em. Hoping the transition is smooth and I don't need to break out the dremel.

You will still need to grind and polish the guide feet, since the pre-ground edge is too steep and not give you a smooth transition when wrapping.

 

If you choose not to under wrap than make sure you polish the bottom of the guide feet ultra smooth. In addition, make sure the guide feet are perfectly flat on the blank.

 

May preference in finish is Aftcoat.
