Charles is a full blown Finishing expert and when he screws up he admits it. I’ve talked to him a number of times when he said he talked to the company rep with many finishing products, I’m sure he told the rep what he was going to do and the rep didn’t cover all the basis. When he was writing one of his books on finishing what took him so long is that he tested the products he was writing about before he would give details in his book, that took months and months to do.
When it comes to outdoor finishes the only way to test them is to put it on something and subject it to harsh conditions the products going to experience. Unless your “Consumer Reports” who can do that? I happen to know Charles paid full blown retail for the product,but even if he hadn’t there’s nothing wrong with using free samples ,the companies that give samples away only do it in expectations of getting some good advertising from well know people in the field that use that morally right or is that bribery ?
