where is the lacquer?
Never suspected it would be an issue. I have been using Deft spray lacquer for sometime on small lathe turned objects. Now, I want to try not coating the wall behind my lathe and use brush-on. Went to Lowe's. Kid that 'waited' on me had never heard of lacquer and he worked in the paint department. Another person, a girl, told me "nobody uses lacquer anymore". Kinda insulting to my way of thinking. I didn't go to Home Depot because I have a lower opinion of HD than Don Taylor has of Grizzly. Then tried the local Sherwin-Williams paint store. An old timer came up to wait on me. Thinking I had finally got someone who knew what was going on, I asked for lacquer. "As in what?", he asked. I knew I was in trouble. He pointed to some polyurethane products. I said thanks and left. Finally, ended up at a local hardware store. They had a single, quart can of Min Wax brush on lacquer. Guy that worked there said that was all they kept on hand as the call for it was very low. Wassup? Are lacquer users going the way of T-Rex?
