Improved spray paint?

Improved spray paint?

10-25-2011 01:55 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 2 comments »

Oh yes it is! There are more colors and more coverage per can! The paint seems to come out in greater volume so be ready for a faster spray pattern. Finally, the name of the color is on the can; instead matching the cap color! (bit of a pet peeve of mine with spray paint manufacturers) Nothing too fancy, just some basic improvements to simple products that are headed in the right direction.

Easy on the fingers.

Easy on the fingers.

10-25-2011 01:45 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

I’ve seen these little jobs hanging around the spray paint for a while now and I’ve been dying to give one a try. I went for the RustOleum brand as opposed to the generic one next to it. (about a $2 difference) I am very happy to say, after painting a wheelbarrow, a 55 gallon drum, a planter box and 6 Halloween decorations, my fingertip did not have the traditional ache that comes with using spray paint all weekend. It is well balanced and very comfortable to use for long periods ...

Best I've used

Best I've used

09-30-2011 03:23 AM by JayPique | 5 comments »

I just saw this review, and I completely agree – it’s the best I’ve used. It smells like Band-aids I think. The only thing you need to watch is that if you spread it with a steel putty knife it will start to turn black if you work it too long, so I use plastic, or stainless steel to spread it. It comes it a nice wide range of colors too, and if it gets dry you just add a drop or three of water and mix it up again. Great stuff.JP

Valspar Spray Primer - White.  Run away from this stuff.

Valspar Spray Primer - White. Run away from this stuff.

09-11-2011 01:51 PM by David Grimes | 11 comments »

They sell it at Lowe’s and at Tractor supply. I couldn’t find any of my beloved Zinsser white or clear so I gave this a try in priming a raw birch plywood desktop for a customer’s built-in desk. Long story short: I sprayed, It dried (slowly). When finally dry, I tried to very lightly scuff sand before applying finish paint and it completely gummed up my paper AND made little white dough balls over the surface. I scraped it all off with a 5-in-1 tool, then used a Rus...

Glidden Trim & Door Extra High Gloss Interior/Exterior Oil Paint with Gel-Flow Technology

Glidden Trim & Door Extra High Gloss Interior/Exterior Oil Paint with Gel-Flow Technology

09-10-2011 07:40 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

My partner’s better half works at Home Depot. She told him about this new paint they have. He told me about it. The word was that it would not drip or leave brush marks. Hmmm… I went to get a can. The can itself says boldly on the label NO DRIPS, NO BRUSH MARKS. Hmmm… I used it on a few projects and came to the conclusion (you guessed it): No drips and No brush marks ! How did they possibly manage that ? Usually, we add Penetrol (for oil) or Floetrol (for latex...

Timber Mate Wood Filler - By Far the Best

Timber Mate Wood Filler - By Far the Best

09-10-2011 06:52 AM by David Grimes | 13 comments »

For years I was a regular user of the old crusty… I mean trusty Minwax Stainable Wood Filler. I’ve thrown away quite a bit that hardened around the edges, then the last bit on the bottom. Sometimes it would get a foul odor, too… but it “worked”. Then, some time ago I came across Timber Mate and thought I’d give it a try. I’ve been using nothing but this product ever since. I liked it so much after the first order that I immediately ordered all...

Great Natural Oil Finish

Great Natural Oil Finish

07-23-2011 09:39 PM by Ian W | 12 comments »

I couple of weeks ago I bought a quart of Homestead House Hemp Oil Wood Finish in Toronto Ontario mostly as an experiment. Hemp oil was new to me but the sales person promoted it as a locally grown alternative to Tung Oil. I have been very pleased with the hemp oil. Initially the Hemp Oil was used as a rubbed on finish on some raw wood. It was easy to work with, and easy to clean up and smelled nice. The resulting finish was a gentle semi-gloss shine that high lighted the grain of the wo...

Great Sanding and Finishing Pad

Great Sanding and Finishing Pad

07-20-2011 09:32 PM by TheDane | 13 comments »

I had been looking for a better solution for ‘scuffing’ project parts between finishing coats. Though sandpaper was an obvious choice, I seemed to be going through quite a bit and was leaving a lot of scratches between coats. #0000 steel wool works pretty well, but it is messy and (supposedly) doesn’t play well with water-based finishes. Enter Rhynosoft Pads (thanks to Charles Neil for the tip!). These are terrific. The pads are a good size (4-1/2” X 5-1/2”...

Loctite doesn't answer inquires

Loctite doesn't answer inquires

05-26-2011 09:16 AM by SailorJim | 22 comments »

This product burned through my tub surround. I wasn’t too happy about the ugly brown stain, but thought I might have done something wrong. I sent Loctite an inquiry using their web-site contact form and they did not reply, so I sent them the following inquiry one week later: ”Last week I sent you a note using this “contact” form and you didn’t have the courtesy to reply. The following is a repeat of my question.” “I’m not too happy wit...
