Default Is there substitute for Mylands sanding sealer

That is the question. Is there a close substitute for Mylands sanding sealer readily available at the usual box stores?

I use Minwax sanding sealer on flat work. Never tried it on pens. I have not compared the ingredients.

I saw that the drying time for the minwax is about an hour or so whereas the mylands is a few minutes.

plain clear shellac thinned 50/50 with DNA works well for me.

Deft has a spray sanding sealer. I sometimes use it with satisfactory results.
