How do you apply the epoxy to the wraps -- that is, do you apply it to the rod while the rod is rotating -- or do you apply the epoxy first to the wraps -- all of them in a section or two sections -- and then start the rod rotating on the motor?

In the past, I always applied the epoxy while the rod was rotating. However, reading an article on rod building they seem to suggest that the epoxy is applied first and then start the rotation after it is applied -- I guess you kind of rotate the rod by hand while working on each wrap.

What do you all do and/or suggest?
