      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

  1. I am refinishing some older canoe paddles.  I want to epoxy coat the paddle tips before re-varnishing.  Should I strip the old varnish/polyerethane from the paddles or just clean them thoroughly?  There is not much built-up layering of old varnish.

      If you are going to epoxy coat the tips, you would want to strip the old varnish down to wood, coat that with epoxy let it cure fully sand and then coat with varnish for UV protection.
