Hi Al,

Just setting up a seperate dryer area. Will be nice to keep wrapping while the rods dry elsewhere.

Whats the deal on dryer RPM. They got 6 and 18. Supposedly the 18 for applying and the 6 for drying.

 

What's your thoughts on the RPM issue.

 

Thanks

Saltheart:

 

I say it depends on your technique. AL like's to use multiple thin coats so the 18 rpm is THE preferred drying motor. The motor spins fast enough so that you can apply flex coat to the turning rod.

 

If you are using say 1-2 heavy coats as the product was originally designed for, then you coat the rod, turning it by hand and then use a slower motor like a 6 or 9 rpm motor. You will spin alot less epoxy on to the guide feet that way.

 

Me I have em' both, but my preference is to use the 9 rpm(I use fewer,heavier coats). I try not to go beyond 2 coats If I can get a way with it.

 

So Final answer:

 

Multiple light coats-18rpm

 

1-2 heavy coats-6 rpm
