Default Re: Starting out

Even with a high build Flex coat turning by hand is not a good idea. Just when you think it has set up and you let the rod sit for a while the finish will sag. When I do a wrap or a repair I let the rod section turn for at least 4 hours. The longer you let things go before removing from the rack the better. Flex coat stays tacky for about 12 hours and will pick up lint and whatever the wraps come in contact with. DO NOT TOUCH to see if it's dry, wait until the next day when you know it is.

I know the little motors are an added expense for start up but they pay for themselves by the valuable service they provide.
