Pratt &Lambert #38 Replacement
#5
Question    
Looking for a replacement for P&L #38...been using it for as a wiping varnish and can't seem to find it any more.

Current need is for a bookcase (Cherry and Maple)...looking for something that books or picture frames won't stick to if they sit on the shelf for a while.

So what has the braintrust been using in place of P&L #38.

Thanks for your suggestions.

It's still out there. Some searching and you can probably find it cheaper than this amazon link I'm posting.

Yeah, it's still made but finding it can be a huge challenge. It's my favorite oil based varnish, and there isn't really any other comparable formulas (soya oil/alkyd resin) made by competitors.
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.

Thanks gentleman. I used a different search engine and found the Satin a little bit cheaper so I’ve ordered a gallon. Will split it up into quart size cans after it arrives in the hope it will stay good longer.
