      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

How and what are you doing?

I was wondering how you handle the lint and small dust particles that land on your freshly applied rod build. How are you keeping the defects to a minimum? I realize that some of that is going to happen. I'm just curious to hear from others on this topic.

I keep a clean and sharp set of tweezers by my side. After I apply epoxy and blow out the bubbles, it's easy to put on the cheaters and pick out any lint that way have found its way into the epoxy. Once the lint is removed, the epoxy will ebb back in and smooth itself out.

Keeping a clean work area is a must.

The next most important thing IMO is air movement in your work area.

The location of forced air registers and return ducts can influence the way dust moves.

Your body movement is also a culprit, walking in and around your work area can disturb the airflow and stir up dust.

If your getting a lot of dust look into these issues.

Another thing you can do is build a curing box to put a dryer in. I have seen some innovative builds with light bulbs for added heat and fans and air filters for circulation.
