Check this out . It’s sad when you check on how to use a finishing product with the company that makes it,and you get bad information right from the horses mouth.

BTW .. I just had a finish nightmare with ML… short story, three way calls, pressure and ford #4 conversations.. 20 mins.. later.. batch #’s, tracking. turns out to be a surfactant problem.. (anti foam agent) recalled all batch had the new product in my shop in less than 12 hours. It sprayed great.. That is service.. Out of that I got product sheets with info tested to my equipment.

Thanks Jim,

Spraying appears to be one complicated task! Interesting how Charles is “On the spot!” LOL! Had my own finishing nightmare to tell once I get my rehab projects done!

Yeah Greg
Charles has used GF products for a long time and has strong ties to the company and their products but as Charles says”What’s right is right” ,he won’t defend wrong doing,friends or not.
