I know there's a few on this board that use lacquer paints. I looking into switching over from auto-air. Any particular brand or supplier recommendations ? Cliff

I was told that because of EPA regs. that lacquer will be phased out, I believe that Janns Netcraft still carries lacquer paints, don't know of anywhere else but I don't use lacquer very often to paint my baits, the drawbacks are too much for me

cliff we use a lot of lacquer based paints. we are in canada though. one thing it does have the qualities of dry fast but you would have to be very careful. toxidity and acceptability to other finishes. as for suppliers its a demographic thing but if you have any questions on using feel free to pm us.

Sorry for not posting more, I don't want it to seem like I am just trolling for business - I do visit and read posts - it's just that this thread jumped out at me!

Thanks for the info. I'm aware of the hazards involved. I've got an explosion-proof paint booth, respirator and only a few brain cells left to loose! . From some research on taxidermy boards, it sounds like the single action clogs less than the double action with lacquer. I've used the VL for about 8 years and hate to change now, anyone here using a VL with lacquers ?
