I had to put all of my shop into storage for 4 years. It had to be done in a hurry and I foolishly packed away about $700 or more of finishing supplies. The area in VA was not insulated and underwent freezing temp’s every winter.
So, I have the following list of items back in a warm shop, but need to know what would still be OK to use. Perhaps just a yes or no from you on what I might be able to salvage would be very helpful. If you have any comments on the rationale, that would be even better.
Here’s my list of stuff. It’s a lot I know:
Gel stains, Watco Danish Oil, Watco Satin wax (liquid), Misc. Varnishes, Misc. Polyurethanes, Pore-O-Pac Wood Filler, Paste Wood Filler, Bondo, About 50 Minwax stains, Tung Oil, Solvents – Toluene, Mineral spirits, Xylol, Naptha, Boiled Linseed Oil, and turp; Waxes of all types; Aniline dyes in powder form; Brush laquer, Shellac flakes, Many paints- both water and oil based, Milk Paint in powder form, Antique crackle, Parrafin oil, Japan drier, White glue, Hide Glue – liquid and powder, Qualasole and Qualenru – Behlen, Solvent 710 – Behlen, General Finishes Seal-A-Cell and Royal Finish, Glazing stain, Gold size, Kwikeeze Stripper.
Thank you so much for any information – I realize that this is perhaps not an exact sceince, but I just would hate to have to throw away anything that I could still use.
