Post: RE: Finish when using epoxy in cracks

Post: RE: Help with fixing finish

One way to do this is to wipe on some oil based stain over the worn area. Of course, wiping it off will remove it from the finished areas, but leave color in the worn areas. If it is too light, try a ...

Post: RE: Other uses for floor poly?

Many years ago I used a product named Fabulon on a piece of furniture and it was just fine. This was long before polyurethane was "the thing". More recently, I read an article that said floor finish p...

I'm not a chemist. So, the data sheet is almost meaningless (skimmed through it). It says thin with MS. So, it's not considered water based, I assume. I haven't totally abandoned solvent based product...
