She’s a beaut! White goo in the bucket is automotive polishing compound, or what?
Leash plug? Nuuuuuuu!
The leash is not needed 99% of the time, but when it is family day at the beach, and there are a million 6 year olds on the inside, I don’t want to ding their heads.
Not to mention spoiling the fantasic buff job when the board gets washed up on the beach. How about a compromise: leash loop.
Nice shine…Buffing boards blows, but is essential for some glosscoats. Buffing compund is the most toxic shit out of the whole process & the smell lingers in the room for hours, even with the exhaust fans on. Not to mention the cost…compunds & new buffing pads are pricey. Wear your respirator!Live long and prosper ^^^ Happy Aloha Friday Moondoggies
I wanted a leash loop, but Manny isn’t down for them on Hulls… He likes them on fishes, but not on the hulls.
Wonder what the reasoning is behind that (loops on fishes, plugs on hulls)…
Tim, the buffing compound I use is waterbased and very mild. I’ve had reps give me samples of stuff that made boards look insane but smelled toxic. Keep it simple and safe I say!
On a quest for knowledge and longevity JP…What is the H20 based buffing compound you use? The stuff I use will burn your eyebrows off.
