And do you need to reapply the sealant again after running it through the machine each time?

Or just sporadically as it wears out?


I have never reapplied anything. Never had any problem

Hey Lorgar,,,,,, This might sound silly, but it works. (especially where you live)
In my younger days, and living down thataway where it rains incessantly and gets freezing cold, I got sick of getting wet and freezin my *** off

Solution > Wear a Wet Suit

As long as gloves and neck wraps cover the obvious entry points, you stay dry and warm. :thumbsup: (sometimes too warm, and then ya sweat) :thumbsdown:

But hey,,,,,,,,,,,,,, this ain't a perfect world :drinks:
I do not fear death itself... Only its inopportune timing!
