Vacuum Pressing At A Reasonable Cost

Vacuum Pressing At A Reasonable Cost

457 days ago by vipond33 | 20 comments »

To begin: If space is a vacuum, who changes the bag? Hmm? Back to earth. We use a vacuum bag extensively at our shop. Everything goes in it; veneered panels & torsion box assemblies. .solid layups and curved work pressings of course. . Recently, our old bag had had the bun. Full of difficult to patch holes, it was a mess. A new one though, was going to run us $550 from our original supplier. You have to pause at that expense, grimace a bit and patch a few more times. Then, ...

Finishing Wax

Finishing Wax

512 days ago by pjones46 | 4 comments »

For years I have been using a wax as the last coat over my finish and never really thought about brand until I made some tests. First let me say I have used just about every over-the-counter paste wax known to the retail marrket: Johnson Paste Wax, Butcher’s, Minwax, Liberon, Renaissance, BriWax, etc, etc. All seemed to do the job but while finishing a project for my wife, I decided to do a little test to see which one gave the highest sheen after steel wooling the finished varnish. I ...

excellent customer service

excellent customer service

I had some issues getting it not to orange peel and solved that then bubbles. I tlaked to Tom at the factory and he was more than helpful. We discussed tempuarte, drying times, and the type and brand of spray gun. As my Iwata is about 10 years old it is not up to doing the water based products. It is a gravity fed gun and built in the days when oil based is all you could get. I have 4 tip sizes. 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 all of which do a fine job on oil based products. Drying time is an issue,...

BIG surprise in a little kit!

Some friends wanted to update their kitchen by refinishing their oak cabinets.They asked me about the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformation product.To say the least I was skeptical and nervous.I didn’t want to “paint” over good solid oak.I didn’t want to mess up their cabinets.But they were willing to give it a try and my motto is “You live here so what you say is what you get.” They picked their color and off we went. The system itself is very easy if you ha...

Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...

I applied this finish to a walnut slab that i sanded to 400grit. I tried a few method to see what...

Clogs, Bogs, and Dogs

Clogs, Bogs, and Dogs

568 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I have become accustomed to long lasting sandpaper like Norton 3x, and Freuds excellent ceramic blend sanding disks for my random orbit sander. I was running low on supplies, so I grabbed these Dewalt disks one day. Almost instantly the paper loads and clogs while sanding oak and Titebond II glue. The sanding was short lived, and I clocked about 8-10 minutes of sanding before switching pads. At first I thought the dust collection was excellent, then I realized it was only because these di...

Stress Free Glue-Ups

Stress Free Glue-Ups

581 days ago by Matthew Parker | 8 comments »

I have been gluing up sone complex assemblies recently and was looking for an easy way to get it done safely. The west system fit the bill perfectly. With the silica filler i am able to mix the epoxy to the exact consistency that i want. The fast hardner gives me just enough time. One peculiarity i found is that the larger the pot of epoxy the faster it will set up, this encourages you to use the right amount which is good. It cleans up easily with lacquer thinner. I have been giving my...

Major help for garage spray booth

Major help for garage spray booth

587 days ago by wwbob | 6 comments »

My garage is my workshop. It is also my spray room. Each time I spray, I need to drape sections of the garage with some form of plastic. I had just about given up spraying due to the hassle dealing with the 9×12 plastic sheets, then I discovered 3M Advanced Masking Film. The film comes in a roll about 12.5 inches tall. You tape the film up without unfolding it. Once the 12.5 inch wide film is taped up, you pull down on the back of the film and the it unfolds to a full 99 inches. I...

Not recommended for shellac

Not recommended for shellac

656 days ago by Purrmaster | 31 comments »

I got this stuff after I saw that the finishing test counter at Rockler had a bottle of this. I was using shellac for the first time so I got this denatured alcohol instead of the “regular” denatured alcohol. I was hoping it might have a bit less toxicity. After sticking my shellac flakes in (2 oz of shellac) and measuring out 6 ounces of alcohol I let the jar sit overnight. And basically nothing happened. So I shake and stir and it makes no difference. I even put the jar ...
