What station was the report on? There has been no mention of such a ban
on any of the Buffalo, NY TV stations' news reports and nothing in the
local newspaper. I also did a "Google" search and can find nothing.
Buffalo, NY - USA
(Remove "SPAM" from email address to reply)
It was broadcast on Rochester WOKR Channel 13 (ABC) on the 6PM news,
maybe a few days ago.
I hope somebody made a mistake. That would sure be egg on Don Alhart's
PS I just did a somewhat superficial search on WOKR TV's page and
didn't find anything!?
Time to lay in a few cases of my favorite varieties. And a lot of
Bloxygen too. At my level of consumption, that works out to around 40
or 50 quarts to last the rest of my life. I guess that's just too
much for the neo nazi environmentalists.
Does this also mean no lacquer thinner? How will I/we clean up epoxy?
Will epoxy be effectively banned as well?
Maybe we'll go back to the old days of mixing our own finishes ala
BTW, "all oil base products" covers an enormous territory, not limits
to finish applied to wood. There's also a lot of food products that
are oil base or have oil in them.
As a native Californian borm prior to the start of the great
depression I was raised on oil based paints and SUFFERED through the
growing pains of the waterbased evolution. I've since switched to WB
entirely although Sherwin Williams was still able to stock Qts of oil
based quick dry varnish but not gallons. Our painter was able to use
oil based paint when he painted our kitchen 4 years ago. I find WB
stuff MUCH easier to use all of the way around. NOW I feel the switch
from oil was beneficial!

Are there any waterbase products that function like Waterlox? I'm not
partial to film finishes. That doesn't mean I don't or haven't used
them, I prefer oil for a finish. Sutherland Welles tung oil finishes
are very good too. Or were, I haven't had a can of that for quite a
I've also used waterbase. It worked o.k., but I still like Waterlox
BTW, I'm not in California, my area doesn't have those problems.
Use 2 coats of Waterlox as a wipe-on finish and it doesn't build much
of a film. Degloss it with 0000 steel wool and paste wax and it gives
you a baby's-butt smooth finish that simply cannot be beat, IMHO.
I'll give up my Waterlox and oil-based finishes only when they can pry
them from my cold, dead hands.
The only waterborne product I use is in my kitchen. Future acrylic
floor finish. Great stuff.
I had Waterlox bootl^H^H^H^H^Hshipped into the state when I lived
there. Not a problem.
