Magnetic reaction force.

If you come across a tight starbreak try placing a magnet up close to it a another or a piece of metal on the other side of the glass, this helps create a ground force that draws the resin away from the atmosphere into the deepest parts of the legs.

Which side of the glass does the magnet go on? And I assume this would be just the opposite for those in the southern hemisphere?

Brent, Does Delta Kits carry windshield magnets?

They used to do glass nails for holding loose windshields in with, I think they stopped selling those when the specialist hammer needed was hard to get hold of.

Thanks for the post Screenman, I missed seeing this last year.

As for Mr. Deines, I should have known a multi-billionaire CEO would take advantage of the pandemic! I might have gone 50,000 but certainly not 100,000!!!

Great fun in hard times guys, thanks!
