    Yep, what Rob said. I bought one at Amazon for a few dollars. Once you use it a few times you'll know what 2 -3 mils looks like vs. 4 - 5 for any particular finish. With the WB topcoats I use 2 -...

    Well, you could keep rotating the unit so that you are always spraying horizontally. But spraying vertical panels is not that hard IF you spray light coats. If the recommended wet mil thickness is...

    Thanks for the kind words Patrick. Just as I'm appreciative of all I've learned from others, I'm happy to share back what I've learned.

    We're all in this together.

    No one carries the pro line of GF products near me either, except for EnduroVar at my fairly local Rockler. I've never found that a problem, though, except in the Winter months when things can...

    Yes, that's right, Tom. A year or two ago someone on here posted a link to a guy in Australia or NZ about how to determine the optimum spray distance for any gun and setup. He did it by sound as he...

    Thanks for the write-up on building your new bench, Osvaldo. It looks like it's going to serve you well in the coming years. BTW, your shop is far too organized and clean.

    Well that's disappointing. My local BM dealer stocks the clear and white Duralaq WB in most sheens, and Undercoater. When they don't have it it's never more than a 2 day wait. I'll count myself...

    What GF fails to tell you about the N/N recommendations is they used a pressure assisted gun. I use a 1.3 mm N/N set when spraying HP Poly in my pressure assisted gun, with no thinning. But with...

    1.3 mm is way too small for HP Poly w/o substantial thinning, if we're talking about a gravity or siphon feed HVLP gun. I used to thin it 6% to get the viscosity down to 45 seconds #4 Ford cup for a...

    With no guidance from your customers, and your comment that "they really want to show off" I would think about some kind of fancy grain mahogany or other exotic for the top, sitting on an ebonized...

    Was that laying on top of the boards or did you dig it out of the holes?

    Same opinion, you will need to sand after the first coat. If you use shellac it won't take but one or two swipes with 320 grit. If you use waterborne for the first coat it will take a lot more...

    I agree with Jamie; those holes were there when you bought the lumber. Cut around them or use a filler if you can't. I wouldn't be concerned with insects still being present.

    General Finishes Exterior 450 WB Stains and Poly may be a good combination for you. Not sure about the stains, however, over fiberglass unless you can spray. I'd give GF a call to find out.

    My saw can tension a 1-1/4" blade to over 25 ksi but I opted for a 1" and have no regrets. Wider blades will let you saw faster, assuming your saw can tension it, but the speed on the 1" Woodmaster...

    3 days might not have been enough for the OB stain to dey if the RH was really high. Even when I'm sure it's dry I never like putting WB over OB unless I first seal it with dewaxed shellac. Your...

    Too much money, too far, and for a saw that I think has an arbor for which there are no replacement parts if it goes bad. I would keep looking for something else, like an older Unisaw or Powermatic,...

    Beautiful work; very well done, and the arbor itself looks great as well.

    I'll be interested to hear how the finish works out.

    Steve, I've never used a WB that was one coat and done. The Cabot product you liked must have been a one of a kind.

    I do not like BLO on cherry as it is prone to blotching. I would opt for shellac or rattle can lacquer, or just wax. My 2 cents.
