 :D Sounds like a circus with the air compressor. :D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

I think it is. i usually shoot enough of it in the hole to flood it. I figger they  will drown in the oil.
I use oil based finishes so i don't have to worry about the Wd.

I use they spray on small holes and air on large ones.
I have used sanding sealer on some pieces that  i forgot to deal with. They didn't get backed all they way out the hole. they were dead with their back side hanging out.
