Much to my surprise, our local 'Home Hardware' has a new product (new to me anyway)...water based paint thinner! Who'd a thunk it, eh?

It seems to, or at least claims to, do pretty much all the painting related jobs that one would expect paint thinner/varsol/mineral spirits to do.
ODOURLESS! And non-flamable! Ok; going to give it a fair trial.
The only things that I can't see it being useful for are those machine shop type uses; cleaning tools where a light solvent coating is a good thing, ie it isn't water.

Bonus! They didn't charge me the Eco tax... mind you, it still came to $14.55 for 4L
Anybody tried this , or similar products? TSP doesn't count.

Water based thinner for an oil based paint. I'd have never thunk it. Does this mean we don't have to separate the brushes we use for oil from the ones for water based?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Dan. I havn't tried it. I'm so fedup with the advertisement because people belives in them. "The Original water based oil paint". First of all the paint producer is fooling you. The water based paint gives a different look and feel and it has allways something to do with some sort of plastic. I rather use old style product's and a two valve/filter raspirator.
Bon chance Dan!

Charles; no.

My understanding is that pure bristles take paint up inside the individual bristles, and in the case of latex specifically, the paint sets in there making the bristle brittle...ie it'll break off down the road. Synthetic for anything; pure bristle for non-latex. Urethane you ask? No idea. But since I use foam pads for for that anyway, it's never come up.
I'm open for correction if anybody wants to offer a different explanation?

I read the subject line and thought it meant going out into the shop, then just sitting and smell the wood odor. That's what I do on occasion, just sit out there and smell the nice smell of wood. Very soothing.

Almost all my paint usage nowadays is latex. Water thinned, water cleanup. Basically, there have been so much improvement in latex paints over the last 10-20 years, it's often superior to oil paints for many applications. It also makes a great, and very inexpensive, fabric paint.

Theo; absolutely! I go out to the woodshed, with a brewski, and mellow out on the split D. Fir and Red Cedar. Feeding the inner me, literally and figuratively.

I like that idea of a brewski, but only after clean up....

Thanks guys...

From "just sitting down in the shop and taking it all in" to "girly boy" to "superannuated hippies.........." this thread has got my day off to just a great start.

Nothing better in my book that starting the day off with 2 donuts, a cup of coffee, and a good laugh and a smile..
