    Skip said to add this to your list---

    When you are using denatured alcohol, you need to use gloves to keep the alcohol from drying your fingers out and ruining fingernail polish if you are wearing any.

    2. Clean machine with soap and water.
    3. Wipe machine down with naptha to remove old oil.
    4. Dip finger covered in rag in denatured alcohol, then add 2-3 drops of linseed oil. Swipe finger over machine, gently blending old, brown, gunky finish with good finish until smooth and clear. Do not rub! Continue motions off the edge of the machine to avoid sticking.
    5. Insert instructions here for applying shellac?

    I write a ton of instruction guides for my work, so I start to panic if things aren't in a nice numbered format. XD Did I get it right?
    You did great, I will post instructions and you can organize them. I have 40 + years doing this but as you can see I am not much of an instructor. I will take all the help I can get. Thanks Skip
