Location: North Bay Ontario

Retired from the Ontario Northland Transporation Company in North Bay Ontario approx. 15 years ago. After retirement went into refinishing business restoring antiques Had the business 8 years. Love refinishing. Also love cabinemaking etc. I have an HVLP Apollo turbine system. Love it. I originally did refinishing prior to my business as a hobby. Hand rubbing. Then decided to go into spraying etc. But one never stops learning secrets, new methods, products etc.
I love to test different things, expirement with products which are readily available. I still often have questions, and am quite excited to find this site.
