  1. I was watching some of your rod build video where you pour the resin on a piece of tin foil. I mix most any epoxy glues on the bottom of a beer can. Crush the can flat tip upside down and no spills or mess.

  2. I am curious if I can sand the 5 minute epoxy. I bought it to re coat a fiberglass stick anchor. My work didn’t turn out to be very smooth.

  3. Yes, you can sand the 5 Min Epoxy. Don’t be too aggressive too soon, let it harden for an hour before sanding. It does harden in minutes but not enough to sand or put through heavy use.

  4. Hello from Australia, the great land down under. I am interest in getting one of your slip clutch’s, I don’t build a lot of rods but think one would be great. Can I get one in Australia anywhere. Thank you for your time hoping for a speedy reply. Stay safe, Stay Strong and keep up the good work.

  5. We can mail you one if you email us your address, however there are no prices in our printed catalog. Our website is the best place to see our products and prices.

  6. Have to replace and rewrap some broken eyes. What is the best method to remove old flex coat?

  7. Carve and shave the cured finish off the blank being careful and taking time not to cut into the blank.
