    Default UV resin?

    Anyone have suggestions for economical UV resin and lights? I'd like to try it, but not sure how much I will incorporate it into my jigs and flies.

    Solarez has a small kit that would be good for experimenting. I have thought about this as well.

    Thanks. That looks like a good way to start. Any ideas/advice on a useable, but inexpensive IV light?

    I was looking at the solarez light but I think you can find others on amazon.

    I've done some research but I'm not sure how strong the light has to be, and there is a wide range of prices. I need to check to see if it is the same time of light used to "charge" glow in the dark lures. If it has a dual purpose it is easier to justify paying a bit more, eh?

    I sent a message to Northland Tackle to see if their glo-buster light could be used to charge lures and cure resin. I'll post their reply.

    North land says light should cure resin, but have no specs on wattage, lumens, etc. I can use the light to charge lures for ice fishing so will give it a try and report back what I find out.

    I have both of these and don’t like them. Out of the two the Bone Dry (one on the left) is better as it’s not tacky to the touch unlike the other. The bone dry chips off easily. I have a UV flashlight (gotten off ebay) I used that seems like it would blind you. I found it best to just hang jigs out in the sun.

    The lights f rom my experience is the cheaper light just take a lot longer to cure the glue and some glue will not cure without one of the very bright and more cost lights. Now keep this in mind, if you have a good sun shining day just start the cure with the lights and finish with the sun.

    I use UV glue that came from Walmart. The set came with a battery powered UV LED.
    I up grated to a AC powered 12 volt Power pack.
    I Use a 12 volt UV LED I purchased from LighthouseLED.com.
    I believe they have an verity of LED voltages to work from,all you need is a AC/DC power pack of the correct voltage.
    The LED comes with six inch polarized leads/program resistor is built in.
