    Hi All,
    I am in the process of purchasing a rod dryer and epoxy applier. I found a sullies 2 speed dryer it has a 4 rpm for drying and a 22 rpm for applying epoxy. I was just wondering since there are so many speed choices out there whats your favorite drying speed and your applying epoxy speed. All suggestions welcome and appreciated

    Mine runs at 6 rpm and works fine for me.

    I use both 6 and 18 rpm rod turners, they both work fine. I prefer the 18 rpm for epoxy application and usually use a 6 rpm for drying.

    I use a 6/9 speed dryer. It also will run 6 rpm CC or 9 rpm CCW. I find the reverse direction feature to be helpful when applying epoxy to stubborn guide feet. I have never used dryer faster then 12 rpm, never been in that much of a hurry.
