    Ok Glenn and Brynn, I had to get a Naptha substitute at Home Depot yesterday. I was told that because of all the rules and regulations in California - they can no longer sell Naptha here. Am I ok with the substitute? If so, that needs to be added to the list. I can't tell you what it is called as I left it in the garage - so I will post the brand name when I bring it in today.

    Did I miss the answer to this question by Miriam? I also got the boiled linseed oil?

    Monica and Cathy all joking aside, wouldn't it be fun to get a really nasty machine and do a demo of Glenn's technique at our next TOGA? Of course, we'd have to do the demo in the garage or at least outside, but I think that would be a cool thing to do!

    Believe it or not, I don't own a nasty machine. All of my e machines are in pretty good shape. Some dings in the paint here and there but no brown shellac. Of course, I don't own many black machines...only 3.

    I think you're right Melinda! Hmmmmm...

    No. "No more machines Charlee!!"
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I was thinking the same. At the Turlock TOGA, one lady, from Turlock, had a machine that she was cleaning up.
    At that time, I thought why not! Now, I'm thinking this would make a more interesting demo. I vote you do it!
