Q:  I missed the formula you gave for a mirror finish to the polyurthene discussion you had on Sat. It was 4 or 5 parts water? to what? Could you give it to me again. I will say I know more about urthene & poly than I did before. Thanks for the discussion.


A:  The formula, so to speak, is if oil base use 4 parts paint thinner to 1 part polyurethane and if it is water based use 3 parts polyurethane ( I have never tried it with water base but based on the chemical nature of urethane that should work well). put both on with a rag after you have rubbed down with 0000 steel wool for oil base and 220 sand paper for water base. Make sure you tack cloth after the rub down.
