    Spar varnish is a generic term.
    The formulations can vary.

    Which brand?

    The types of wood and/or projects you are finishing can also effect the amount of solvent used for thinning.

    What kind(s) of wood and/or project(s)?

    Short answer. I'd use spar urethane for this application. Read the label for cleanup instructions and that will tell you what to thin it with. I think it is mineral spirits. However that being said you will not get the same uv protection if you thin it and you will be prone to having bubbles in the finish.

          The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

          I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

          IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
