Lacquering Bobbins

Hummer Lacquering Bobbins
Mine look messy when I lacquer with nitro and a brush. After potting they just don't have that super clean and shiney look that some bigger makers get. Any hints?

Dunk 'em and hang 'em up...

Are you sure that's a good idea? Lacquered coils look nice, but they're brittle.

Why don't you spray them. Laquer in an aerosol is readily available.

Will try the dunk next time, thnks!

You could also use a rechargable aerosol such as a Preval , these can be very handy for small jobs,

I tried a couple of dunk, and it works fine, but the poles can come out a little messy - especially after a cover has been put on and taken off a few times. Masking off the poles seems excessive but I'll give them a wipe with a tissue just after the dunk to clean them up. Handmade still rules it seems, so many little things!
