Exclamation 'Phly Welding...

Pheatherz [generally speaking] have a concave [inner/dull] and a convex [outer/shiny] side... [please correct me if I'm mistaken]
I apply a bead of L.C.A. along the spine [just wide enough to involve the barbs] on the concave side and a bead on the target [hook shaft/tube]...
Once ready to spot weld, have the light in hand and at-the-ready...
When the two surfaces touch and the phinal pheather position is achieved, ON goes the UV curing light... Bada BING... Bada BOOM...
I've tried Tuffleye, Clear Cure Goo, Bug-Bond, Loon, and Deer Creek...
The ONLY one left in my kit is BUG-BOND Original with the Pro Tip...
'Bug-Bond offers me the best control and pinpoint precision application...
It's durable, quick to cure, and my personal L.C.A. of choice... 'works BEST for ME...!!!
I also prefer Tuffleye Clear Coat to ensure a tack phree, glassy smooth surface...
and...
No matter which L.C.A. that you choose, I'd still recommend placing the phinished welded phlyz in the presence of the ultimate curing light [the SUN] to absolutely cure 100% thru and thru...
'welded wide body tented tunnel hull w/ on each phlank... 3 white, some phlash, 1 yellow chartreuse, welded w/ Bug-Bond...

welded wrapped n' tented herring insinuendo...

here's what happened this evening...
a typical welded phoundation...


some sparse buck tail and crystal phlash for body...

tented pheatherz welded in place and 3D eyez encapsulated with Bug-Bond Original...

I watched a tyer at the Somerset Show struggle with a popular brand "R" that needed a major overhaul... it was painful...
The cam-jaws were toast, the finish would make a zombie proud, and there was a general worn out feeling but the guy was distracted and oblivious...
'so were his phlyz... 'good on him... 'Keep Calm and Carry On...
I prefer tyin'/weldin' in my JZone...!!!
