    Default stupid question but please help

    I am wanting to mix up some hares mask dubbing. I am wanting to mix natural with synthetic. my question is this. I know most people use a coffee grinder to do this but I have a small food processor I could use with out a new purchase. will the small food processor work just the same as the coffee grinder?

    Default Not so stupid...

    It should work just fine. Coffee grinders are just rapidly spinning blades in a confined area. A small food processor, especially one that has small bowl insert to help keep things together, does the same thing.

    Another trick I saw in Charlie Craven's book is mixing the dubbing in a plastic sandwich bag using canned air to get it spinning around. Let me know how it works out, because I have an old processor sitting in the attic waiting on our next garage sale.

    Unless you want to mix large quantities at a time you can hand mix pretty well. That is what I generally do for custom blends...
