  • Mineral Spirits

    Hi All,

    I have been using mineral spirits to get the paper pattern off my wood which work very well, but it leaves an odor on my cut out piece. Is there an odorless mineral spirit and if so where could I buy it. I thought I read once in an article that Jeff Z wrote where he used odorless mineral spirits.

          Oderless for me seems to mean less oder, not oder-free...

          I've been using Goo Gone lately on my patterns; and it seems to work just as well. It's a little more expensive, but comes in a handy spray bottle and smells a whole lot better!!!

            The discussion about pattern application and removal comes up periodicaly.
            I have been using Clear Contact brand contact paper (since a Kathy Wise seminar at the FC open house) directly applied to the wood then I glue the pattern to that. When I am finished cutting I just peel the contact paper and the pattern off. NO STINKY SOLVENTS for me.

            I used to use the blue painters tape. The contact paper is abot $5 a roll.

              Gary, paint thinner is the same thing as mineral spirits, costs less and I believe smells less.

                Denatured alcohol works well for removing stuck patterns also. I have used plain old rubbing alcohol too. It evaporates quickly and doesn't raise the grain as much as mineral spirits. It does have the typical alcohol odor but it doesn't linger in the shop due to rapid evaporation.
                If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                  Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                  We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                  What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
