I know, I know! It's from changing groups where prolonged debate requires you to quote the whole mess or you catch it and here where it isn't so disgustingly picky..

Waterlox is a varnish, and not what you want to be using over the Polycrylic. It would almost certainly peel off. I believe Larry was suggesting it as the primary finish, for which it is quite well suited.
Patriarch, deviously thinking that some waxes are labeled as 'polish'...

Your assumption was correct, Glenn. I must have jumped in late and had -no idea- he had previously "wrapped it in Saran." There's seldom a fix for that 'cept more poly. Maybe, if he roughed it up enough, a clear epoxy finish would stick to it.

24 grit? Or maybe 36? I LOVE the sanding adapter for the 4.5" low angle grinder. ;-)

OK, Saran comes off with 24 grit taking 1/4" of meat off the top. I'll give you that. ;)

Easy: Remove the polycrylic, melt beeswax )non-toxic, you find it in many foodstuffs and pills), mix in linseed oil (the pure kind from the salad aisle), brush onto table top, wait a few minutes, rub off exess. Repeat after one day, for several days.

Easy: Remove the grease from the paper towel,
Easy: Remove the brazing from the repaired cast iron,
Easy: Remove the nail from the tire,
The problem, Juergen, is that the damage has already been done.

Well, there's the additional problem that Juergen responded to a request for "alternative to wax" with "how to do wax". Sheesh.
