Glass Jars for those recalcitrant chems.
Boys and Girls,
During the C19 Pandemic, I treated myself to a few new Fe$tool tools. This is noting to do with them, though I may do a review later, they dragged me down to the workshop and make me do some "workshop kinkies" that SWMBO might deliver a moon-slap in disgust.
For once I will avoid powered tools and turn my back on hand tools. I will crap on about those workshop incidentals that most just tend to ignore.
To minimise cross contamination I decant most of my chems/paints/stains/shellac, into glass jars. I wrote a tip on how to undo jars.
With this PITA C19 putting a dent into my activities, I found that my venture into "traditional workshoping" has taken a back seat to my puzzling laser work... (sorry gotta spruik my financier… ME).... you've all been following my puzzle mania… haven't yazall?
Returning to the workshop and hitting the jars with the 2 strap method, I had more OOPSIES with "horizontal orientation" spills than glasses of vino consumed in the last 10 minutes.
Faster curing tung oil and a traditional mix of shellac has the tendency to glue the lid to the jar… not to mention all those contraband chemicals that invade some selective noses… though I'm not condoning ample splinkling of sawdust/flour for workshop foothold stability.
If you are bored so far (as I've been know to crap on… but the goods are about to come), there are many more interesting LJ threads to satisfy your druthers…
This may seem obvious to the psychos (or is it psychics) out there, but I have found two ways to prevent those spillages while I used to battle with the two straps on a horizontal jar.
- Fully graduate to square jars.
If I detect an item in a square jar,
I buy it and then determine if I like it. If I like it, I have a great source of square jars and if I don't, I hold my nose and try to eat the stuff without proclaiming disgust of the stuff and wear my badge of abhorrance with nose-held pride. They can be inserted in a vice and with minimal pressure stabilise them for use with 1 strap wrench,
- If You're no square and claim rotundness, get some rubber padding,
I got this from Clark Rubber, however, if it's a tad too far to shop from Yankeeland, Google it's local equivalent. I use the semi-soft 6mm x 100mm (to length) rubber strips to grab round jars in my vice
I can crank it up to a reasonable force without fear of mega sweeping and cuts in the base of my thongs (flip-flops) of glass shards.
BTW: Shellac (liquid) has a limited shelf life, however, expired shellac mixed at 1:10 (depending on your cut) with metho (DNA), make a brilliant sanding sealer…. So don't throw out that non-tackie shellac (test used for determining expiry). Aren't you glad you didn't stop reading…
Lets just opt for,https://www.thelondoneconomic.com/must-reads/pensioner-diversifies-rubber-business-making-erotic-gear-sex-dungeons-69196
I am not sure which one is applicable tee hee!!!
without the guns.
pottzy, it'd be great to get the band back together of, the rc, the pottzy and the black sea (read that quickly), however it's a tad early to hijack even one of our threads on the first day.is it time for the stooges to rise up one more time ? what say you stooges ? it s been too long IMHO !!!!
A Dutchman that doesn't shellac, is like a Yankee that either likes or doesn't like The Donald... they're called Cubans!I have read the last paragraph. Too bad I never use shellac.
