Indeed, there were other curious members out there.

Now, not to start an argument, but just to state a fact, Mohawk pre-cat gloss lacquer in an aerosol can (M102-0410) does have a ball that rattles. I was surprised myself, but dang if it doesn t rattle when I shake it. The only explanation I can think of is that it s cheaper for them to just use one container for all of their aerosols.

I’m not real familiar with “pre catalyzed” lacquer Rich, but that’s different stuff..

I like the old nitrocellulose lacquer just because I’m familiar with it. The can that I have out there now is just a quart of Minwax semi-gloss, but it’s almost empty. ...It has the extra flattening agent on the bottom because I used it a couple times as high gloss (which means I didn’t stir it at all)..

Mostly, I’m just wondering if there’s a limit to how much additives lacquer can carry. Between the flattening agent and the tint, I’ll be adding a lot. If I can, I’ll tint it as heavily as paint…. less coats that way..
