Ok. So to make quality polish for the discerning user use pure turpentine. Some people think ready meals are just as good as real food, they obviously like eating cr*p. Similar situation surely.Turpentine substitute works just as well. It's only there as a thinning agent.
You'll have to stir as the mixture cools otherwise the wax and the turpentine will seperate.
Add more wax than you think you'll need - it's easier to handle a thick polish than a thin one.
Use a double boiler to melt and prepare and pour into a low dish.
I make my own for polishing bowls and spindles - although I haven't bee able to get an my lathe this year as it's covered in beehive parts.
Its not the shed fairies,its the bl**dy kids when they move out.How do you know that you have it at the back of your shed if you haven't seen it for two years?? The shed Faeries might have taken it.. (sounds a bit Stephen King don't it?)
