Restoring Guide Wraps???

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

I have a Lami I built many moons past and I'd like to coat the existing guide wraps with epoxy.

The problem is that the old varnish finish coating the wraps is cracked. Does anyone know of a way to safely remove the varnish or how to eliminate the cracks so I can just coat over it?

Any Ideas! confused.gif

I would think that you are probably better off completely removing the guides and re-wrap from scratch. It is more work but I am convinced that the end result will be much better.

I really need to preserve the original wraps.

But thanks for the input. icon14.gif

I tryed wiping them with nail polish remover and that did lessen some of the cracks, I'm still hopeful someone will have an answer.

If thats the case,I'd suggest to lightly sand the existing finish so that it will accept another thin coat of finish.Apply a thin coat of finish. After the finish is set up, if you want to duplicate the color and elimated the cracking in the existing overwrap, overwrap with a size A duplicate thread color and put on another coat of finish.
