Default yep, greener is better

Supro,

Good point. I was an aircraft mechanic for a bunch of years. Two of the reasons I jumped the field were constant layoffs and the toxic environment. We used the motor oil and crock pot to shape acrylic items like temporary contoured plates to patch windshields hit by bullets or birds. The industry in general didn’t give a fuk. We died of cancer or went crazy from the heavy metals in the paint fumes and solvents. No big loss to the bottom line. There always was some poor young kid next in line to take our place.

Vegetable oil would probably work great and be a lot safer.

Best,
John

Got some wet/dry sanding projects ahead and will try the baby oil
