Can’t say that I have … maybe I’ll pick some up the next time I am at Home Depot.

$14.29 for 16oz ain’t cheap, but still costs less than CA.

See product MSDS

Spalted wood can reach a point where it is useless. If a few drops of CA or re-sharpening your tools cannot fix your spalted wood turning project not sure worth turning.
