    I dunno if that's absolutely correct.
    The only times I've encountered a milky finish is from one of two things.

    Generally a silica flattening agent is incorporated in the formula that settles at the bottom of the can. If it isn't thoroughly mixed can cause a milky or haze appearance.

    The other issue is from stain that hasn't thoroughly dried before applying the poly.
    If the moisture is trapped under the poly this will cause a hazy - milky finish.

    This is more likely when doing finish to furniture for example .... since Harry didn't stain then he won't have any issue with that part .


    At least that's been my experience .

    That's brilliant.

    I'm thinking those cod hooks are a fair size.

    geez ... if they're large enough they'll be secured to framing and you just hang the sheetrock on the hooks. If they poke through enough they can double as picture hooks.
    Haven't figured out the ceiling ones though.

    Out here on the prairies we use bailing twine and barbed wire fencing staples.
    So as you can see the staples thing isn't a new idea.





    as for the thread, 10% mineral spirits to cut down varathane, or woule 15% be better for the first coat to dry quicker, humidity is hell right now
    That's a tough call .... myself would probably go with only the 10%.

    If you put a pin with the same shear strenght as a drywall screw through the eyelet and it's long enough it will hold better than a drywall screw.

    And you can build a robotic transformer rack with lasers, full hydraulics, computer controlled,and a built in work site radio that will install 256 hooks at one time and automatically put the drywall sheet into place. That way you wouldn't even have to be there so you could spend more time with your family having intelligent discussions.
