    "Thin it 'til it flows, and then thin it some more" -- my favorite piece of finishing advise from an Uncle who's laid down miles of finish.

    I've used it on our sapele kitchen island. The island houses a sink and is subject to lots of abuse. The finish has held up incredibly well over the year and a half it's been on.

    That's a very cool solution, thanks for sharing. My solution is a lot less elegant, a 5" port in each door. It works well enough that I just ignore the OEM dust port.

    I've used it some recently to satisfy my own curiosity. I don't find one coat to be sufficient. If you follow the instructions on the can, you will end up with a finish that is very flat and looks...

    I don’t recall which of the vinyl sealers I used. I certainly never specified when I bought it. I use garden variety lacquer thinner and retarder. Whatever is available at the local store.

    I've used the CAB Acrylic quite a bit and it sounds like it would meet your needs. I've typically used it with a sanding sealer underneath, but I don't think it's necessary on bare wood.

    Yes, I had a metal worker friend cut a hole in each door of my MM24 for a 5" hose. They work so well, I don't even hook up the factory ~4" port anymore! I opted for placing them in the doors rather...

    The beauty of the RTM system is very little waste. You only mix as much as you need. Much less waste than buying a can for a project and then letting the left over sit around forever.

    I started using the RTM stains a few years ago. I haven't used them on any soft wood, but I have used them on some blotch-prone cherry with good results. I like to use it as a spray and wipe -...

    If the machine isn't too far away, consider hiring a flat bed wrecker. Put the machine on skates and then have the driver winch it up. I've moved my CU410 Elite twice that way with no issues.
