  • What type of wax

    Those of you that is finishing with lacquer and then waxing and buffing the product, what type of wax are you using? How long do you leave it on before buffing?

    Larry, I have never applied wax to lacquer, but I would think good old Johnson's paste wax would work. Good luck with whatever you choose.

      I just use Johnson's paste wax, applied with very fine steel wool. You don't want to leave the wax on long enough to begin to dry or haze over. I tend to goop it on, work it in for just a few minutes and then wipe it off, and buff. I really love the results!

        Thank you Mick and Patte....that's the wax I thought would work, but I have not tried it before so I thought I would ask around.

          There are a lot of "special" waxes for furniture builders, but some of the better ones still use the Johnsons paste wax.

            Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

            Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

            Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

            Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

            I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

            Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
