Upon my first experience with UV-activated resin, the manufacturer said you only needed their little handheld "flashlight" to cure the resin. I mean, it works if you have the patience to sit there and hold that thing section by section for what seems like hours, especially if covering more than a couple of square inches.
These lights resolve that issue quick, fast, and in a hurry. There are two sizes that allow you to choose based on the size of your project. They are not too hot like a nail curing lamp, but better than handheld lights. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to the vendor-provided handheld. I would purchase them again.
I like having the two sizes to work with. If I'm doing tiny pieces, I can use the smaller light. It's legs stand about 5" apart. The bigger light, of course, works better for bigger molds. It's legs are just over 9" apart. I've only used these lights a few times, but they seem to work fine and I haven't had any problems.
I am really please with this set of 2 UV lights, large and small. The large one has 3 timer settings the small one does not. It also came with a green silicone mat, which I am happy about. I have not tested its resin curing ability yet as I have not started my crafting yet. When I do I will up date this review if needed, otherwise it is wonderful and stands at 5 stars.
Perfect for curing my resins in their molds, love that it has a large and mini size, and the silicone mat is perfect, the bottom has a sticky texture which helps keep it in place
