    Restoring shellac

    I've been told there is a person, Glenn aka "Skip" who details a great way to restore shellac. He is an antique furniture restorer and a sewing machine enthusiast. How do I find his information please?

    Well you could have (1) asked the person who told you, (2) search for what you're looking for or (3) search for Glenn. A fourth option would be to look at the finding vintage machine resources thread which is always on the first page (Glenn's thread is linked from the first page).

    Or, some smart alleck like me will just be a helpful doofus and post the links for you >

    { Cleaning and repairing the shellac clear coat on vintage sewing mcahines }

    { refinishing sewing machine cabinets }

    Here's the two I have bookmarked. But Glenn has made many many posts on here giving much valuable information on redoing the shellac on the heads and wood. For that you can do a search on his posts.

    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.
