We only apply accelerator when using medium ca. and sometimes then prefer to apply patience instead.
I dont like to use Accelerator at all but some times I'm in a rush. I will apply 5 - 6 coats thin and let it self dry. Then 5 - 6 coats medium, usually allowing it to self dry then I go through all the spongy squares of the MM and check the finish under a Bausch and Lomb StereoMicroscope I purchased on ebay (old job habits dont die) to see how bad the scratches are. If need be I will refinish with the MM from about half way through the deck up.
