Don’t know about the Klingspor or Rockler products.

I use PVA drywall primer (2 coats) ... about $10 per gallon in the paint department at most centers.

I have not tried either, but if it dries to a waxy film, it should work. I buy Anchorseal direct from the company in 5 gal buckets. It was cheaper the last time I bought it.

I have had good success using acrylic or latex paint left over from house painting. Add two or three coats. Cost…almost zero because the paint was left over.

I have no experience different versions of Green Wood Sealers. If looking to save money might have a look at a quart of this product from Craft Supplies USA. Only found three reviews.

Woodworking Shop Green Wood Sealer

Rockler’s Green Wood Sealer comes with lot of good reviews.

Don’t remember which version of Anchorseal Sealer made for cold weather but might be worth looking into a quart of that. I know Woodcraft stores usually sell both versions.

You could also make your own if want have a look.

I have used both latex pain and canning wax as an end sealer with lot of success. Just remember where you store and weather conditions can degrade any wood sealer. My way saying not a set it and forget it proposition.
