  1. Rustoleum Clear Coats

    Mark, sorry for the slow reply..Yep...I hold it low in the jar and let it drip back into the jar..Nathan
  2. Rustoleum Clear Coats

    Mark, can you get Xylene in Ca.?..That’s what I thin with..I also use Bloxygen when closing the jar...But this stuff is ridiculously easy to use..dip and hang..2-3 coats a hour or so apart...I’ve only had one problem with the jar going off..but that was my fault..I got lazy and didn’t seal it up correctly.A good tough top coat with just a little flex to it..I’ve spent hundreds of dollars through the years trying top coats..This is as close to nirvana as I’ve found..Nathan

  6. What kind of wood is this?

    A little background...I work in a building located in Clinton Mo...The building was built in the mid 1880’s...They were doing some remodeling and I snagged this scrap from a floor joist they had cut..This piece of wood is about 130 yrs old...just beautiful..just as clean on the inside..This is why I love wood!!..Can anyone tell me what it might be? I’m going to make a lure out of it for my boss..Just going to leave the wood raw with a good top coat...Nathan

  8. Kbs Diamond Clear Coat Aerosol Can Update

    You guys should really start a new topic if your discussing something other than the KBS Aerosol spray..It makes search’s easier...and you might get more in put..Nathan
  9. Kbs clear dip

    If it’s being rotated it can’t puddle...Just be sure you let it drip off well before rotating or you’ll get a small hardened drip on your spoon..Nathan
