    It should be OK to sand all the old finish off and re-apply. If you sand carefully you should not have to re-stain. Got some questions. Are you sure the heat ruined the finish and it was not a bad or old can of finish? Cans of finish should be tossed out after being open a year. When you said tung oil did you mean pure tung oil or what is sometimes sold as "tung oil finish". If pure tung oil you need to cut it some with mineral spirits. Also make sure you only apply thin coats of your finish. Just wet the surface.

        Tim, cold can be worse then hot when it comes to finish. Keep the finish and the work piece at least 60 degrees until the finish is cured (24 hours).

          Don't forget humidity. I've had bad results from applying a finish on a rainy day...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              Now,...

              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
