Anyone else see UV resin smoke briefly when hit with the torch? I am using Solarrez and Ultrafire torch.

The resin has too much photoactivator in it. You are literally "cooking" the resin. Put some on a glop on a 3x5 card and smoke it and I think it will be discolored.

My resins won't smoke cure crystal clear.

To answer your question, bullhead, yes ... I've had resins smoke when curing it.  Doesn't seem to affect the fish's interest in whatever bug I've used it on.

FWIW, I have applied CA glue to pen blanks and the paper towel start to smoke. I drop them into a can of water.

Would it be appropriate to ask if you are using the stuff after sex??  On second thought I was taught that if you don't want the answer don't ask the question so I withdraw!
