Doing professional work I rely heavily on products that are already made for me to use. I like opening a can and going to straight to using the product as much as possible. I leave chemistry to the chemical coating industries and they have served me well.

My favorite all around product currently is ML Campbell’s MagnaMax pre-cat lacquer. It’s durability is more like a catalyzed varnish. It is lacquer so it dries fast even in a cooler shop during the winter. I just leave it in the pressure pot all of the time.

My Favorite Finish

If I need more durability I use a catalyzed varnish. ML Campbell’s Krystal is great. It is bullet proof and does not yellow over time. This also dries fast because it is catalyzed and solvent based.

Conversion Varnish
