Fly tying: UV glue curing trick

laser1

Brett put me onto a sweet little trick for quickly curing UV glues (clear cure goo in this case)…. High powered purple lasers. They set the glue faster than the blue UV lights that are usually used, the glue is rock hard in seconds (saving a few seconds). So if you ever lose your blue UV light, want a back up or just want to try something different, purple lasers may be worth checking out. The lasers are only $10 so its cheap if it fails to work for you…
