About sanding sealer: Sanding sealer is traditionally some sort of lacquer-like paint that has a lot of filler in it (e.g. talc). It's meant for filling wood grain before painting. Recently I bought

Also, certain paints need to be thinned (or have their brushes cleaned) with xylene instead of normal paint thinner. For example: Hammerite or Zero-Rust (both great paints, BTW). Doug _______________
