Having recently come across the posting from Our buddy Steve from TimberBits, I watched his video on doing a CA finish and using Glen 20 as the Accelerator. But they only sell that stuff in Australia. No bigy.
I took what I learned and I was able to finish 5 pens and I was so thrilled with the outcome. I never thought of Brasso, but it adds something to the finish and I love it. I didnt use an Accelerator, just time, between CA. Three coats and then micro sanding to 1800, Brasso , then I use PlastX as a final coat. These will be in my Project folder under Series two.
Now I found a new posting from him using stream from a tea kettle for the Accelerator. Very interesting indeed, he calls it his “Super Tight ASS Method”. Here’s the link ( share among you all in case you missed it. To each , his own. But I want to say thanks to everyone for all their input on methods for pen and wood finishing it is wonderful.
