    I did a bad thing.....

    to borrow a phrase from Abbot and Costello.

    In my haste to complete the kitchen cabinets and get them delivered, when I finished spraying the blue I put the gun down on the bench and ran out the door. With everything going on getting it finished up I soon forgot all about it. It has been sitting for about 3 weeks with about a pint of finish sitting in the cup........
    Fortunately it hadn't dried and I was able to clean out most of it but I cant seem to get the dried residue out of the cup and a few of the other nooks and crannies.
    It is waterborne poly from GF. Anyone know of a solvent that will break down this finish that I may be able to either scrub it off or let it marinate for a day or so?

    little BIT OF ACETONE or some methanol chloride stripper.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Thanks Dave,
    didnt get a chance to get back to it today. one of those "non stop" days.....
    I have some acetone and Larry suggested some lacquer thinner which I also have.. Will give it a try when I get a chance.
    In the mean time I am going to use my "clear" gun and just flush it out real good!.

    Just explain to the officer{s} that you were trying to 'blow out' the residue
