    Just a little bottle or two........

    I use two products on my turnings a lot, almost everything gets one or two coats of the Cellulose Sanding Sealer, it has been a very good base coat, dries quickly and does not stink to high heaven



    The other is the Melamine Lacquer, I have a thinned version I put on too, but mainly straight out of the can.

    The lids on the cans that both of these come in are a pain, they soon get gooped up and I end up using a pipe wrench to get the lids off, not an ideas situation.

    I got these two bottle things, look like honey bottles, they are actually from a sugar substitute I use in my coffee (got to watch that girlish figure of mine ). the big lids screw off and give a large opening for filling the bottles and the small lids come off with easy as well, but the nicest thing about these bottles is I can see the product, so it is easy to just put a dab on the cloth I'm using to apply the finish.

    A simple thing, but I'm impressed with how well they have worked and the price was good too

    Just thought I'd pass this tip along.

    Cheers!

    Afternoon Stu.

    A little hint for the cans. Both these methods work.

    1. Cover the threads with a little petromium jelly or paste wax and screw the top on.

    2. Waxed paper over the hole and threads and screw on the top.

    Stu,

    Thanks for the post. Where do you buy this product? Are you getting it shipped from over the pond?

    Hi Bruce!

    Yeah, I know that works, but the other thing is these new bottles dispense the product much better!

    Alex, I get the sealer and such from Suzuki San, the price is not bad.

    BTW, there is a hands on turning workshop on the 21st (a Sunday) at the same place we saw Eli, I'm going, you interested..........?

    (uh-oh we are turf surfing here in Tokyo........ )

    Well we are high and dry enough, that no Tsunami would ever hit us.........I hope!

    Sure rumbled along for a long time, most are over in a few seconds, this one went on a long time, I was getting worried it would get worse, but it did not.

    yep turf surfing.....

    I was at my local mill when I heard the truck blaring out the Tsunami warning.

    Stu, on the 21st I gotta take care of the lil' gaffer while SWMBO is out playing. Is Eli going to be doing the demo on that day? Wish I could go but will have to pass this time.

    No Eli, no J-F, just us hacks.

    This is a hands on workshop where we are all supposed to practice what we learned from Eli and J-F............ they want each of us to give a short demo of something we learned........ easy for me, I'll just do nothing

    Yeah, you are kind of close to the water, did you see any waves???

    Cheers!
