I’ve pitched out a little bit of skinned over, jellied finish in my time. Hobby woodworkers don’t use enough finish fast enough to keep that from happening unless… If you have a tank of CO2 in your shop or Argon, flood the gas into the space above the finish and it will be “good to the last drop”. Argon goes to the TIG welder and the CO2 goes to the Cornelius keg.

Somebody out there must have a few more ideas that will displace the O2 from the paint can. I haven’t tried propane but it might just work. Propane is pretty flammable but then so is the paint thinner.
