Re: How long should a drill bit last?

If you look at the end of the bit, the tapered one not the ball end, when it is dull it will be shiny. Two things you can do. Use a good small pair of needle nose pliers to snap a little piece off the end of the bit. This will almost always give a cutting tip that is at least as good as new. It can ...

Re: I got a resin problem.

Put some resin in the fridge one time so as to keep it fresh. It came out like honey, really high viscosity. Don't know what happened but the distributor said don't do that or it will thicken like it did. So are you using old resin? Fresh resin seems to work a lot better for me.

Re: What is the best Repair kit ?

The only time I use heat is sometimes on a large daisy break there is a void that won't fill, heating sometimes helps this but you have to wait for it to cool to see if it worked or not. Extremely rarely a bullseye will have a spot or a void along the edge that just won't go away, and adding heat wi...

Re: How to hold down a canopy overnight?

Take the canvas top off overnight, or any side curtains or banners attached to the sides. These are the things that put the pressure on the frame and will ruin it if there is enough wind. Leaving just the frame there will usually be OK.

Re: Drilling technique

It's using the end of the burr to grind a pocket, a little dip in the glass, so that the drill will not skate around when you begin drilling.

Re: Accidentally drilling all the way through

It happens to me once in a great while. Usually when I get used to using a dull burr and then put in a new one and forget I don't have to drill so long. It's not a real biggy, just fill as usual but you likely will have a small scar where the drill hole is that wouldn't be there otherwise. It used t...

Re: Long Crack Repair with Delta kits

I use a 2 1/2 inch flip lever type suction cup from Harbor Freight, I think about $2.50 or so. I butter it up with hand lotion and place it on one side of the crack, then when I'm filling the crack I lift up on the cup, sometimes quite forcefully. This does the same thing as pushing from the inside ...

Re: Introduction and sale model question

There are three for sale on ebay. The one from Banning Ca looks to have two flip lever B250s or 300s, a dry out tool and a 12 volt uv light. It is $299.95 and another is $300. The $400 one has only one injector. If you have multiple chips you will need two injectors. I don't know if they are screw t...
