I feel I got much better results than with commercial ready to use products.
    What do you use to dissolve the Shellac? Your article did help.. they say to use ethanol or methanol .. Thank YOU. The more I read the more confused.. (That is my normal) says HEET Gas-Line Antifreeze And Water Remover is 99% methanol .. $1.59 for 12 oz..

      I dissolved the flakes in denatured ethanol which is not restricted here in Oregon. I buy it by the gallon at Home Depot.

        I have been reading up on this on various wood working forums. Some of the talk is very nasty as you can imagine. No one had a real answer. One solution was to get or make your own moonshine. Also illegal. Short of moving, it seems like your only real option is to go out of state and run the risk associated with bringing it in. Sorry.

          Thank you all. I think I will continue my moonshine runs out of state. That is what I have been doing for the past 2 years.. I was really hoping to find a legal solution to doing woodwork without moving..

            John you could try some water based lacquer. Google search for Target Coatings EM6000. It sprays very nice they say it can be brushed I have not tried it that way though. Not sure if shellac will be as durable as your original lacquered items.

              Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
              • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

              Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
