    Re DNA availability in Canada

    Hi All

    I now have a healthy bowl blank i wish to turn as well as some other bits of Osage Orange i picked up at the dump. Have covered the ends with sealer. The thing is what can i use to dry the finished product apart from DNA. Or can some good buddy in Canada tell me where we get DNA in Canada. Seems the guys at HD dont even know what i am talking about and the only chemicals in the solvent area that they have are things like thinners and what i call turpentine or the equivalent its slightly oily.

    I am wondering whether I shoulnt take a trip to Buffalo and go across the border. I understand you guys in the US can get this stuff at HD is that correct?

    Thanks
    cheers

    You can get it there, it is just called a different name. For the life of me I cannot come up with it right now. I'm hoping that someone else will soon. Then again, I'll probably wake up at about 4:30 am with it on the tip of my tongue.

    DNA availability in Canada

    Hey Rob,

    It's called Denatured Alcohol.

    That should be available just about everywhere house paint is sold.

    Guys, I know its called Denatured Alcohol, but I dont think you guys have been to a HD in Canada. This is not the same as the USA. They barely know what paint is at our places. Have you heard the slogan "You can do it we can (should be cannot) help. Not too much in the way of knowledgable associates at the HD I am afraid to say. Maybe our government thinks we might drink it since the booze it so expensive here.
    cheers
