    Mylands Polish Gvies 5 Star Finish

    Pros

    • Time saver

    Cons

    • Needs A Steady Hand

    Best Uses

    • Small Projects

    Comments about Mylands High Build Friction Polish :

    I make duck calls on my lathe and Mylands High Build Friction Polish makes a high level finish/sealant. Dries hand, mirror gloss and brings out the grain of the wood as good as it gets. However, you need a steady hand and watch for over doing it so it dries evenly.

    I use Mylands HBF Polish on my spinning tops because it dries fast, looks great, and gives me a finished product when I take the top off the lathe.

    A Fast and Fine Finish

    By  Terry

    from Prosser, Washington

    About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Beautiful Finish
    • Easy to apply

    Cons

    Best Uses

    • Small to medium turnings

    Comments about Mylands High Build Friction Polish :

    This friction finish is easy to apply on the lathe and in my opinion works best at higher speeds where the friction helps to "burn in" the finish. It doesn't leave the project with a plastic appearance, but brings the natural beauty of the wood to a nice luster.

    great stuff - but

    By  uncle jesse

    from bay minette, alabama

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Easy to apply
    • Very fast

    Cons

    • LEAVES STREAKS
    • No Instructions

    Best Uses

    • Turnings

    Comments about Mylands High Build Friction Polish :

    If you try to apply multiple coats it will begin to streak. You can actually feel them. If they included proper instructions (even bad ones) this possibly could have been avoided. A single coat applied with a very smooth cloth is what I recommend.
