Nice video you did for them Mark--i was surprised to see your picture in the GB e-mail i got yesterday.
I've been applying GB like i did with Mercury Flex (with tips from Michael [mecompco])--lathe at about 350 rpm and a light stroke. It works great for Mercury Flex, and equally well with GluBoost. That said, after watching Mark's video yesterday i'm thinking i'll try his technique on one i have on the lathe now. Might cure that little bit of "barber pole" effect i get now...it's easy to smooth with micro mesh, but would be easier if i didn't get it to start with!!
Ok this question came from Face Book. They were looking for some new CA product that only cures with accelerator.
I suggested gluboost but as far as I can tell it will still cure like any other CA. People also brought up Mercury Flex with a longer open time but for both products longer is maybe 45 seconds versus 10 seconds or so.
I made about 60 pens with a gluboost finish last Christmas and didn't let anything set overnight with no problems. I applied a couple layers of the blue bottle and then finished with about 5 from the orange bottle and using the accelerator between coats.
I averaged a full glue finish in about 6-10 minutes per pen with no problems.
I have been using GluBoost almost a year now. Having spoken with the owner the recommendation is the accelerator is needed. While the finish will feel dry to the touch it may not be. Like John mentioned above I always use the GluDry accelerator. I love the finish. Glass like. And also as John mentions above I am generally done in five to ten minutes complete. Two coats blue. Two coats orange. GluDry between each coat. Then micromesh and buffing. Always a very predicable finish.
If you look under the Exotic Blanks page in vendors they announced a monthly giveaway from GluBoost. I am very happy with the finish.
Additional question here --
What do you use for buffing?
I normally don't buff as I have been using Pens Plus as a finish.
So when you say you buff the pen after using GluBoost, do you use the white and tripoli polish?
I am assuming you would not use the wax, but any advice / pointers would be appreciated.
