Who's your supplier for dewaxed shellac flakes?

I'll run out of the premade stuff I bought soon and want to make my own, especially since I can't find dewaxed near me.

What supplier/brand do you guys like?
Semper fi,

For de-waxed shellac flakes, I've used a number of online sources over the years, but most recently ordered 3 different ones from WellerMart - excellent prices and de-waxed - have mixed up a couple recently and am pleased - recommendation here a few months ago.  Dave Smile

You can buy SealCoat shellac, which is dewaxed, from Home Depot for $54 for 4 qts, with free delivery to your door, and $75 for 2 gallons, also with free delivery.  Link.  You can make any color you want from it by adding Transtint dye to it.

I've used Shellac.net, Woodworker's Supply (JE Moser Brand), and Weller Mart (above). Of those I like the JE Moser stuff best sinc eit's packed in nice plastic containers...but it's also a lot more expensive. The Weller Mart stuff is very reasonable and I'll probably stay with them the next time.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

I usually use Shellac.net or shellacshack.com. Price and availability usually dictates where I buy.  I don't worry too much about stability of the flakes. I have a basement shop so it is usually in the lower 60s. I have never had a problem.

Posted many times about WellerMart.  Their price is competitive (for flakes to mix up small batches or special runs -- at gallon quantities, SealCoat generally wins out, at least last time I ran the numbers including shipping and sales tax to my area).  And it doesn't take a very big order to bounce up over the shipping minimums.  And W.M. often has a free-shipping deal too.

Their Amazon pricing is a bit weird.  Some are $1 less if you are ordering just 1#.  
But on the web site, you can get free shipping on orders of $49 or more.  

Blonde -- less through Amazon (1#) but garnet -- more and orange -- more through their Amazon portal.

Anywho, never had an issue ordering direct.  Usually I'd contact a few people I know from the local woodworking club and we put together a bulk order and that drives down the price even more.
