Topic tags/keywords: qswo mission finish chemical reaction safety equipment vintage finishing technique finish oak white oak fuming hazardous material

I recently purchased ammonium hydroxide 29% for a mission bed project. Supply house min quantity was four gallons. If you have an interest in trying this traditional technique I’ll trade/barter/sell by the gallon. Read the Material Data Sheet before considering this finish. You need pvc gloves/ apron and clothing, splash goggles or shield, cartridge respirator and I recommend outdoors or well ventilated area. It is done inside a double walled tent of 6 mil poly. Still interested? RSVP via PM please. Located NW Minn-NW Wisc. steve

Maybe put this in the buy sell trade section but, since I’m here now, how much for a gallon? Are you shipping? I’m about out.

For you guys that are interested, you can get 28% ammonia from Buy it by the quart and there’s no hazardous material charge. Comes to $44 a gallon vs $42 a gallon if you purchase the gallon size.

Not able to ship. This will work best if you are passing thru. Shipping calculated from 54880, weight 12.7lb/gal + packaging.
