Re: Where can I buy nitrocellulose lacquer in NZ?

Sorted! :D I have the Technical Data Sheet for nitrocellulose lacquer. The product name is 262 Speedlac (PGG Industries Industrial Coatings). They had it in stock in Rainbow Paint in Dunedin so shouldn't be too hard to get. You can get it in a small can, which is what I assume you are after Tim, but...

Re: Where can I buy nitrocellulose lacquer in NZ?

Mmmm - I need to do a little more research for you Tim. I have found that can, and it has the following on the label 849-2-12000 Precat Clear I got it from Rainbow Paint in Dunedin.

Re: My Latest Obsession and Reason

I had road bikes in the 80s/90s. Still wish I did on nice sunny days. Maybe it is time for another mid-life crisis :lol: Post some pics

Re: Guitar repairer/luthier in Dunedin

Steve Barkman is my go-to guy. His workshop is in Broad Bay so a little out of town. I can find his number if you want it. There is a another guy who works out of downstairs in the Dunedin Rockshop. I've never used him, but friends who have had some work done by him have been happy. Just gonto the R...

Re: Teaser - next project

Somewhat overdue for an update. Haven't had too much time to work on the neck over summer, but have finished shaping the neck and just down to the fine sanding. I have sealed the neck with shellac and oiled the fingerboard, so it now looks pretty much what it will be like when finished. The shellac ...
