  • Future wax

    When I was stumbling around the airbrush links I came upon a picture of Future floor wax.

    Has anyone ever used this as a finish for woodwork?
    It is hard as nails and is an acrylic product.
    Easy clean up etc.
    It is used quite regularly in the model making world.

    comments?

    Carl,

    I personally never heard of that brand, but you should check to see if it contains "silicone".

    If it does, you don't want it in your shop, as silicones contamination is one of the worse finishing problems. As once the silicone gets on the woods they can contaminate all your woods and machinery, and will cause "fisheyes," which is a very difficult problem to remove from the woods.

    Silicones are used to make things slippery, and are found in some waxes, polishes, and rubbing compounds. I strongly suggest that you read the label, and you do not buy any products that contains "silicone oil.

      It is an acrylic floor wax that has been around for years. Doesn't yellow SHines like crazy, but I will look for silicone. Never can bee to safe.

        Mac,

        By any chance have you worked in the auto body industry? I've heard that same speach from the hubby I can't tell you how many times. He's been doing paint/body work for over 30 years.

        I've heard the term fisheyes mentioned quite often, usually follwed by a string of expletives!

            Kelly,

            I was in the furniture finishing business, its a very big problem in the refinishing the restoration business.

            There are many products that do not contain silicones, if any one uses dry or wet lubricants to oil their saws or other machinery, you need to becarefull that they don't contain any silicone oil.

            The reason I mentioned it was only a precaution. I was trying to pass on to others. It certainly won't hurt to look around your shop, and read the labels, or before you make any purchase for things your going to bring into your shop, as air borne silicone can land every where in your shop.

              I am hoping that air borne silicone will get soaked up in all my air borne sawdust.
              I figure if I play my cards right I can spray the Future wax all over the sawdust floor and end up with a nice new texture product.

              I will call it MDDB

              mainly dirt and dust board. It may be the start of a whole new career!

                  Looking For Mom and Baby Animal Pattern
                  by Quartz43
                  I made these simple animal patterns some time ago and gave to my Grandkids. They play with them a lot and have gotten broken so I need to make new ones. Of course, I can not find the pattern and can not remember where I have seen it.

                  Can anyone tell me where to get the pattern?

                  I have grown to like the Pegas brand MGT blades . for this thickness the blade number varies from brand to brand, The TPI (teeth per inch) is more important the Pegas 5 is 11.3 and the 7 is 10.4 TPI.

                  I also the Olson Mach series the #7 has 8 TPI and really works great on thick wood....

                  The sales at my market is off the charts. We do Saturday and Sunday but I’m home cutting for next week and Bruce is there for the 3 hours today mostly for pick ups. My entire stock inventory is just about gone! Bruce made 8 pepper grinders. Only 1 left. Angels, birdhouses flying off the trees. Baskets...

                  I have a Micro Mark drill press that I use for the tiny holes when doing delicate fretwork. I am happy with that.
                  This saw is too limiting especially for any bevel cuts. The blade change process would drive me nuts, and the other concern is blade tension. It is like the ancient deltas, spring...
