So far I have not found the vinyl grain sealer anything to right home about, but I plan to try it on to wooden pens tomorrow. According to Gary the grain sealer doesn't respond as well to the UV flash light as it does to sunlight. I will see.

I saw their ebay listings and without going back to the website thought the prices and shipping seemed reasonable . Interesting that the sealer doesn't respond to the UV flashlight as well as the other products . They make so many different types of finishes it can be a challenge figuring out what to use , even just for testing purposes .

That is why I spent 45 minutes on the phone with Gary about a week ago....I was lost. I think like other products, one has to experiment and see what suits you (or doesn't suit you).

I am going to give the Ulti product and sealer another try today. I learned yesterday that I was holding the light too close for either products...they recommend 6 to 8 inches from the surface.

I really don't want to have to delete anything, but this seems designed to create the type of posts that can make a nice thread like this turn sour very quickly...

Please ignore this post I've quoted and move on - chum in the water only works when you go for the bait!

No need to delete or ignore anything. Just keep it on context as it was meant and don't read anything into it and all should be fine.

The problem comes up that when you are in new grounds you have to be the pathfinder. That means there are no tutorials, help from others or the like. It's learn as you go and make path.

There are those types that want to explore new grounds and those who wants others to do it and teach, instruct, others the application.
