I'm running out of paper. I need an idea for wet sanding shellac. I have an
orange peel to smooth and it's taking so long. I can't find mineral oil, I
don't remember where I got the last bottle and HD has none. All the WW shops
are closed down in South Jersey.
Oh, a tip for those waiting on K body close outs. Stop waiting, ask the dept
mgr for a discount that matched the tradesman % and they can do it. They aren't
dumping the kbody line.
Thanks very much
Note that the more you have to remove, the less lubricity you want.
Leveling favors mineral spirits, polishing, light oil - vegetable ok.
Mineral oil really slows things down, even the light stuff.
You can pretty much always find mineral oil at a drug store, but it
may be expensive compared to the gallon sizes at the BORG

A quick check of drugstores should do it, even unto the unscented versions.
I don't approve of political jokes. I've seen too many of them get elected.
You can get mineral oil at a good pharmacy (usually CVS is a good bet).
They don't sell it at home centers or hardware stores. I know what you mean
about the woodworking stores in South Jersey, but they wouldn't have it
anyway. Did you know they opened a new Woodcraft in New Castle, Delaware?
I don't usually buy from them but it is within driving distance.
Yes, I've passed by a few times but have not had the money to stop in. I never
walk out of a WWstore without lightening my wallet.
I'll hit a drug store for mineral oil, we have one on every corner here, and

forth from the murky depths:
Walgreen, WalMart, K-mart, Rexall, Mom'n'Pop hardware, or whatever
pharmacy you have locally should all carry mineral oil.
Use a cabinet scraper and have it done in minutes without
even building up a sweat. Here's one trusted source:
And before you lay on that next coat, remember to pour the
shellac through a fine painter's filter, use a clean (or new)
brush (or pad), blow off (yourself) and tack-off the project,
and don't stir up dust in the area when you're doing it (since
it's obviously not a spray booth).

I used mineral oil because I could sand longer. It was very thin, not a
problem, wish I'd saved the bottle.
I can't scrape it smooth because the piece is a table base with turned legs.
Baby oil = mineral oil, never knew that, add it to odorless spirits, sand in
the living room while I watch TV, wife will love the new air freshener. ;-)
