Posted by ardvark002 on Sunday, March 05, 2017 7:41 PM

Hi ,Is there a major differance between using a good quality lacquer thinner to clean your brush, as their brush cleaner? I have been going to alclad more , especilly on metal finishs. If there is a differane, I will buy.  I've been useing lacquer thinner , so far so good.  Thanks,  Aardvark                                                                                                                                          ps. Happy building!

I keep enamel thinner on my bench, lacquer thinner on shelves across workshop.  So for quick cleaning I just use the enamel thinner, only resort to lacquer thinner when I am finished with an Alclad project.  Seems to have worked okay- have been using Alclad for a number of years.
