    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...

              Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great.

              Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

              Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
