Can you use plain ole Laquer Thinner to thin Barge cement?
Try using acetone or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK)Can you use plain ole Laquer Thinner to thin Barge cement?
The reason for this question was to use something I already had at my shop instead of buying a $19 plus shipping special can of "Barge" thinner. I used Acetone which I had and it worked fine! I live in a hole in the wall town and 90% of what I do is via internet purchases for my knife stuff! No one has anything here! So I was gonna buy the Barge thinner (cheapest I found was $19 with a $13 frieght charge plus taxes!!). $35 plus bucks for a can of thinner is ridiculous especially when I could have bought a new can of cement for less!!Try using acetone or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK)
Just for future reference, I looked up the MSDS for Barge Cement and it lists MEK, acetone, and heptane as three of the ingredients. The main ingredient is n-hexane and apparently there is a little bit of isopropyl alcohol in it, just a few percent, though.
