      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

Lint free cloth

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

What cloth do I need to look for that is lint free? I know hand towels & the like are not the answer :D

Edit:

Just realized I forgot to mention I'm wanting this to wipe down bodies before painting.

The best thing I have found to use is an Anti-static Cleaning Cloth. I used these for years to wipe photo negatives before printing and have found they work well on models. You can purchase these online, or at any photo supply store (If any still exist).

Yes, I assumed you were talking about car bodies. I use an Anti-static Cleaning Cloth. It works great since static-cling is notoriously one of our worst enemies when it comes to preparing a model for painting; especially during the winter months,

Wash your bodies off with soap and water , then rinse thoroughly with warm water . Do not dry them off with cloth. Jack your regulator up to the hundred psi. mark and blow them dry with filtered air . No lint , no dirt , no fuss , no muss ! Using cloth to dry your cars off is only inviting Murphy into the equation. Just a suggestion .
