      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Not working for me either!

    Ace is correct. I do a lot of casting and I always vacuum the resin and use a pressure pot. The resin I use has a 20 to 25 minute
    pot life. I'm not sure about the low viscosity resin not creating bubbles, I have a clear resin that's almost like water and it creates more bubbles!
    Best bet is de-gas  and use pressure for casting. Also super glue is the way for filling pin holes!
  9. bill w added a post in a topic A question for those of you who do resin casting   

    First never use black for a chrome base. The best results I have is a gray base, 10 to 40 percent gray. Chrome dose not have color, it reflects whatever is around it.
    I use a two part automotive urethane clear, wait 5 to 10 minutes and spray Alclad. The two part clear cures in twenty four hours and you can try rubbing the Alclad off
    and it will not smear.

    You need a black tint which would be transparent. www.alsacorp.com they have what you need, it's expensive.

    Can you tell me where you purchased the detailed RR instructions on the engine? I have a couple Pocher kits that I will be finishing when I'm
    finished with my current project. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.
