Gee, Fuzzy, I didn’t mean to get you so upset. I thought your point, which I agree with, was: if you don’t go to extremes to exclude oxygen from a container of oil finish, it will inevitably begin tio polymerize and become useless. Your approach of dividing up between multiple containers and using propane is good and will surely delay the process.

But you might want to check the chemistry involved in waterborne finishes. Its my understanding that they could even cure in an anaerobic atmosphere because the molecular crosslinking takes place when the solvent, water in this case, evaporates, independent of the presence or absence of oxygen. If this ain’t correct, I’ll happily stand corrected.

Don’t worry; be happy
