    What Makes A Good Mizusashi Good?

    It's not urushi, it's auto paint. I go thru the process of sealing, priming and spray painting the wood covers. I retired as an auto painter. There are a few more mizusashi pictures in my gallery. Aloha, Ken

    Pres, the cable set up is the same configuration as the Brent. All the parts were bought at hardware stores. Still using it. Aloha, Ken

  13. I use a high intensity LED flashlight to view the cones. (TechLite lumen master) You can Google the name to get more info. I also made a video showing the results with the flashlight. In the video cone 9 is on the left starting to bend. I posted this info once before but no one responded. I have a friend that also uses the TechLite.
