      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 building outdoor furniture out of cypress. The material was air dried and 8/4 that I milled down to about 1 5/8". I have found several checks in the material that I am using for legs. Most of the checks go less that 1/2" deep into the section. I would like to seal the checks but the cracks are too tight to get epoxy into them. Any recommendation on how to handle this would be appreciated. bob
  2. I have a small section of rub rail that is pulling away from the other segments. I have some TotalBoat 5:1 epoxy and I can thicken it to glue it back together, but was wondering if Thixo wood would be better. Any opinions on which product would work better? Thanks.
  3. I have a mahogany veneer tiki bar top that I am looking to protect with either varnish or epoxy. Top is partially exposed to the elements. What durable coating would you recommend that will still allow the beauty and color of the wood to shine. Thank you

  5. Can a Total Boat Epoxy resin/hardener mix be thinned to create a penetrating epoxy mixture? If so what solvent should be used and at what ratio?. I only need a small amount and don't want to buy a full quart only to let 3/4 go unused.
  6. I'm using 6 oz. cloth to put a skin on an older wooden boat hull with Total Boat epoxy, slow hardener. How long do i have to wait to sand prime and paint. Till it's dry, one day? or should I wait longer? Thanks, Dave
  7. i need to know the advantages and disadvantages to both. i am regelcoating the top side of a fiberglass boat and doing some patch work on the underside. any responses are greatly appreciated!
  8. I have acquired an old flat-bottomed wooden fishing boat. It has some old fiberglass on the bottom that was apparently intended to seal the joints where the sides meet the bottom and a seam where the two halves of the bottom were joined. The remainder of the bottom was simply painted and most of it is flaking off now. I want to seal and waterproof this old classic but have no desire to spend a lot of time or money doing so. These fiberglass sealing "strips" are mostly stuck down pretty well, but should I peel all of them up? Sand off what will come off and seal/paint over them? What product or products should I use to seal and repaint the bottom and sides? Thanks in advance for your advice! KL
