I see this pop up several times a year on various sites. No need to get complicated or overly expensive for us folks who don't use large volumes; just use the Klean Strip "green" product from the BORG, decent ventilation and disposable gloves; no problems. The only downside is that it does not appear to come in anything but quarts. As a disclaimer I should state that I seldom dissolve my own shellac from flakes or buttons. I also don't spray shellac often or on any large scale so what I find acceptable as a "carrier" may differ.
I know there are other products out there but, on the west coast the Klean Strip line is readily available. I did used to use the Klean Strip SLX stuff which is way high in methanol; no thanks. Like Leo, I do get the stuff on my hands and this post will help me reaffirm my use of gloves. Disposable gloves dirt cheap (versus the things they protect us from) and easy enough to use. I am just guilty of not wanting to walk over to where the box is for "just this one thing" .
