Looking for the size of the bearing for a Sealine 400h. Pinion was froze on shaft and when I got it apart split the bearing and need a replacement. Any help would be appreciated, tried Boca for size and no match.

The Tycoon looked like a bamboo quad to me, but it's difficult to tell in photos.
  It is built like a  Bimini King , Just hard to see the Bamboo character in the sides .

Pricely but Jason may be on to something. Lab pipettes may come with disposable tips.

Calling them "Dawgs" if you live in Georgia is a sure sign of intelligence and sophistication.  Grin

I use CRB syringes and thread master epoxy. Color coded and put them in a sealed baggie.

We all have favoured ways that we work with rod resins, other resins might need a variation on a theme or a completely different approach. Once we started investigating the various options of plunger type bottles, we found that components from the same source were remarkably close in the measure that they dispensed, and with the Covid situation many more plunger type dispensers have become available, even down to very small quantities being dispensed from 1 or 2oz bottles. Recycling those would no doubt answer the issues raised. Storing in dark cupboards between builds is an option for the occasional builder, just like storing un-used resin in the original containers.

One by-product of the use of plunger dispensers in the workshop has been their use with other liquids, not necessarily for mixing dual liquids, but just handy dispensers for the likes of de-nat alcohol and thinners and the like. Handy, clean and relatively spill proof.

As said there are many different ways of dealing with a problem which in some instances might be worrisome for some folks, we find this system to be simple and fairly idiot-proof; thus removing the worrisome issue for some folks.

I do however like the idea of using a glass mixing plate. That's the beauty of this site - sharing experiences to hopefully all move forward............ Smiley

To me, the UV cure stuff is reserved for a quick and dirty surfboard repair just to keep the water out until a proper job can be done.  It doesn't last for long.  An epoxy resin will give you a thicker coat and hold up better..  I guess it depsnds on how long you expect the jig to last.  UV cure would be perfect for me because I leave all my terminal gear on the rocks.

Here's a comparison to read.

5 days ago I hooked the first Yellowtail of the season, I did not see it coming, just a tiny "slurp" 15 mt from my feet, lifted my rod and before I realised that it was a big Tail, I was stuck in to the bottom over a reef.   Gone some line, leader, clip, lure and fish!  Cry Cry
Lures are not made to last unless in a display cabinet, so why all these pretty lures? Huh?

We have plunger pumps that screw into the gallon and quart cans.  They can be calibrated but if it works on the first batch it will continue to work.  You do have to stop as soon as they start sucking air at the bottom of the can.

The lab pipettes may not be strong enough to use with thick resin and they will leave too much resin stuck inside the disposable tip.  Syringes often only work once before the rubber tip starts pulling loose from the plunger rod.  I hate that.

You can measure any resin by volume.  If the directions say to use weight you just have to weigh a known volume once to make a correction factor and adjust the volume ratio.

For small batches of only a milliliter or so, I squirt the two parts onto a piece of plate glass and eyeball the size of the puddles.  If the two parts have similar viscosities it works fine.  The glass plate is a good mixing surface too and you can pry the left over resin off after it dries.
