dryer speed

  1. 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

  2. Mine runs at 6 rpm and works fine for me.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
