  • Q:

    When using gasket lacquer, can it be applied to both the oil based stain and the painted crown dip? What type of base ( Water , oil , etc. ) should the paint be ?
    Then do you dip it with gasket lacquer all at one time?
    Thanks

      A:

      I stain my arrows with minwax and crown with the white GL and crest with Testor's model paints, then finish by dipping the entire arrow (with crest and crown) with two or three dips of the clear GL.Only once did I have an issue, which was when I didn't let the stain dry long enough in humid weather. All that happened is that the final coat of GL was not very durable and starting chipping off after a month or so of use. Gasket Lacquer is an excellent product.

      A:

      The cresting and crown dip should be water based. You seal the arrow with the gasket lacquer first then the paint gos on top.

      A:

      Make sure everything on your arrow is dry before you dip them. Gasket
      lacquer is a great product. It dries real fast.After you shoot your arrows
      and ding them up you can re-lacquer them.

      A:

      I usually wipe on a water based stain. The grain then lifts. I use a 000 steel wool to make everything smooth again. Then I clean that surface very well. Then i use the gasket lacquer. Never used a crown dip.

  • Q:

    Should you taper and tip your shafts before dipping them? Also what tools do you recommend to taper as I have noticed that some tools may damage the finish?

  • Q:

    I love this system, but it seems like each coat is adding more weight than it should. I am getting about 20 grains per dip on an 11/32 douglas fir shaft. i read one of the other reviews that said 4 coats was only 18 grains. is my excessive weight likely due to my gasket being worn or the lacquer being to thick? or maybe im pulling to fast? btw it still takes me 4 coats to completely fill the grain, as in other reviews. Thanks.

      A:

      If the gasket has been used a lot it may be better to use a different hole in the gasket or try slowing down when pulling the shaft out. This will give you thinner coats.

  • Q:

    I'm trying to put a crown dip on with GL in white. On the first dip I get incomplete coverage. On the second dip, the dry undercoat smears. Now I've got to strip my arrows down to bare wood and start over. Any suggestions? Also, the white GL I just ordered has the consistency of peanut butter. How much should I thin it down?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You want it to be thick like that if it is thinned then it will streak. You need to stretch out your gasket so it puts on thicker coats

    Could you apply this product with a cotton cloth if you are just starting out with making your own arrows?

      A:

      I think it would require too much solvent. The amount of ventilation you would need would keep you from having a debris free finish.

      A:

      You could but I would not recommend it. If you do use a cloth make sure that you have really good ventilation. Using a dip tube is a lot easier and much safer.

  • Q:

    What do you clean up with afterward and what kind of shelf life would you expect from the product if kept (tight cap) in the dipper?

      Acetone. Still in my dipper 8 months air tight. Just add some acetone to thin.

      A:

      Most solvents should clean this up easily. Or you can wait for it to completely dry and scrape it off. If left in the dip tube the lacquer can last a year or so. It will depend on humidity and temperature though so not all areas will be the same.

      A:

      We have tried to use a blue dye with the lacquer before. It has never worked out. The lacquer never seems to dry with the blue. We may try again in the future, but as of right now there are no plans to.

      This product gave me some problems in how fast it dries: not using the companies dip tubes and rubber gasket system. I used it over a Minwax oil based mahogany red and it showed no compatibility problems.

      Yes, you can use this product over almost any oil based stain. You will need to make sure that you give the stain ample time to dry first though.

      One should as long as they both have the same chemical properties, ie. lacquer base.

      Yes, you can mix the various colors to get pink or orange. There are no exact formulas for it so it will take some experimentation to get the exact shade you are looking for.
