    I am thinking about picking up a used rod dryer, it is 9RPM, is that to fast for Flex Coat lite build? Will the epoxy center itself at that speed?
    Thanks,
    Bob

    If you have your finish on fairly smooth to beging with, that should be fine.

    I try and put as thin a coat as I can and as smooth as I can. Thanks for the info Charlie!
