Product: 024103 5-Inch by 8 Hole 180 Grit Premium Plus C Weight Paper Hook and Loop Discs, 25-PackRegular price: $11.52, or about 46ยข per disc. The picture is after 30-40 seconds of sanding poplar and about 50% of the grit is gone. The consolation is I only paid $4.05 for the box.

I love this stuff!

I love this stuff!

I’m sure I have sprayed 20+ different waterborne topcoats the last 6-7 years. Several of which I’ve sprayed well over 50 gallons of! Most of which was on corporate or commercial projects. As with most things, there are things I like and dislike about all of them. About a year ago I decided to try emtech. Jeff (owner, target coatings) suggested I use 8000cv. I had yet to shoot a waterborne conversion varnish that I liked so I went with 9300 instead. After a short learning curve ...

J-B Weld KwikWeld - 6 minutes to setup

J-B Weld KwikWeld - 6 minutes to setup

08-25-2015 03:38 PM by Mike | 7 comments »

Hi All; So many of us have used the standard 25 minutes J-B Weld that well takes 25 minutes to cure. As many people know, that is a long time to keep something clamped and it usually in my experience takes a few hours to actually cure. The other day I had to make a repair to my car and I went into the big Orange box to pick up some J-B Weld. I came across the 6 MINUTE J-B Weld KwikWeld. I’d never seen it before (might have been out for years, I don’t know). I personally di...

http://www.sculptnouveau.com/ 5 stars. They have plenty of free tutorials and I love incorporating metal into my work. I chose “Jay” as my subject for my respect to his no nonsense woodworking. In conclusion, its good stuff.

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

05-20-2015 04:19 AM by B4B | 7 comments »

I picked this up on a whim. I was looking for an ink roller, or glue roller, and couldn’t find either at a local woodworking supply shop. I did find this gem and for $15 I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve used it a couple times now, and both times I intentionally left the glue dry on the brush/applicator/tray and it came off as advertised. As for longevity, only time will tell.

General Finishes Java Gel

General Finishes Java Gel

05-18-2015 01:19 PM by CalumetWoodworks | 9 comments »

I really liked how this stain applied. It is thick like pudding and doesn’t smell real bad either. Application is straight forward. You can use a rag, brush, or any other applicator. In my use I went with a stain pad (basically a foam sponge wrapped in terry cloth). I put on a really thick coat, let it sit for about 5 minutes and wiped the excess off. I let the first coat dry over night and applied a second coat. Since I was staining maple it took awhile for me to get the hang of a...

Some grits are better than others

Some grits are better than others

05-14-2015 07:16 PM by Purrmaster | 8 comments »

This review is for multiple grits of the 3M “Pro Grade Precision” sandpaper sheets. All grits are red colored and have a sticky back. It appears to be a Home Depot exclusive. I’ve used a lot of this stuff in the last few months. Since Home Depot got rid of Norton 3X and started stocking this new 3M stuff. It appears to be a stearated, open coat sandpaper. I’ve used Norton 3X, regular 3M paper, 3M “Sandblaster”, 3M “Sandblaster Advanced”...

Custom Support is second to none

I am currently helping a master humidor builder in creating a new finishing schedule for his cherry humidors (http://www.michaeldixonhumidors.com ). He is letting me share the heat in his shop this winter. They have been using Minwax blotch control with hit or miss results. I suggested we try Charles Neil’s Blotch control, so we ordered a quart. We received better results but not quite where we wanted them. Sent Charles an email with a picture of our results and he suggests we tal...

Formby's not so Tung Oil Finish

Formby's not so Tung Oil Finish

12-22-2014 05:40 AM by pallystu | 14 comments »

I have used Formby’s Tung Oil Finish for years since it is readily available at the local home improvement store and is easy to use. They sell this product as a “mix of tung oil and other fine penetrating oils” and appears to be nothing other than a wiping varnish with maybe a tad bit of oil in it with tons of thinner. The can says You wipe it on with a rag and buff it into the wood and do this maybe three times to get a nice close to the wood finish that has a good amoun...

Real smooth and Bright Finish

Real smooth and Bright Finish

11-09-2014 09:01 PM by Duckster | 7 comments »

I have been using the combination of these two products for the last few months. I gave both a 5 star rating as they have not failed since I started using them.I put 2 coats of the sealant, then I sand it with 400 grit sandpaper to smooth it. I then put 3 light coats of the lacquer and then I sand it again with 400 grit.I am picky about the finish I put on my projects, but I know from experience that shine sells!I then apply 12 more coats of the lacquer, I know that sounds like a lot but putt...
