Best Price on Anchorseal
« on: May 12, 2016, 04:23:17 PM »
Where do you guys find the best pricing on Anchorseal in the five gallon pail?

I'm going to start collecting logs for my next timber frame and want to take the best precautions.

You have to hunt for the best price but Amazon.com gives you a variaty of vendors to chose from and they tend to get the best price. Depending on where you live shipping might make or break the deal you're getting.

I used to buy it direct from Anchor Seal but I'm not sure you can do that anymore.
Like 40Frank said, check your websites for the best prices and pay attention to shipping charges.

   I buy it directly from UC-Coatings. I think a 5 gallon bucket was $92 including shipping the last I bought.

I haven't been able to find a cheaper price than through UC Coatings, for the 5 gallon buckets.  We normally buy several at a time, and shipping is dependable and free.

I don't know about anybody else, but I don't particularly like the colored versions because I can't really see the end grain to optimize my sawing.  I also prefer the original formula, Anchorseal Classic.

Thanks for the replies. It does seem like UCC has the best shipped price. Free shipping is a big deal considering the size and weight of 5 gallons.

I've been considering starting to buy the bad mixed batches of paint. Stores will make mistakes and discount the paint significantly. Sometimes it's an overrun of quantity and you can benefit from it.

Just saying, $20 a gallon v $2-5 per gallon means real money.

Is there really an advantage to sticking with Anchor Seal?

The wax emulsion is a far better end sealant than paint.

Paint will slow down the end grain drying out, but not as much as wax. Maybe it will be enough to help, maybe not?

I bought a bucket in'14, it was $87 shipped to MA.

Are you thinking about some hardwood for the next frame?

Paint is not useless as an end sealer, just close.

Quick update: Offered now for $95 shipped by UC direct, clear; $98 for the colors. I would suggest buying food coloring and doing your own  if colors are your thing, cheaper.

1 not 2 for me, but they have both.

If anyone in FF in the Charlottesville/Richmond Virginia area would like to go in on a 55 gallon drum, I found $634 shipped from another company, and we could ask UC Coatings, too.  I'd be willing to buy it and dispense it with a drum pump, etc, maybe for a couple of bucks per gal more than cost to take up waste & eq/overhead cost.  The stuff is touted as freeze resistant so it could sit in one of our barns.

I'd take five gallons or so.  That's about as much as I need to have on hand.  Maybe some others will chime in.

5 gallons will last me a year. Most of my sawing is custom sawing.

MbfVA. They may say it is freeze resistant but in my experience you best not get to freezing or it is ruined. I had a what was left of a gallon in my shed last winter and it got cold enough to ruin it. 

Now I keep anchor seal in basement during cold weather.

Look for other brands because that seems expensive.

I can get Anchorseal here but $$$.

I can also get "Caltex Timber Sealer" or " Mobilcer 195". Caltex is the Australian division of Chevron, Mobil is the Australian division of ExxonMobil.

All the same as Anchorseal, half the price. I'd be talking with your gas guys about what they might be able to get for you.

For the hobbyist  use old latex house paint and news paper.  If you are cutting your own logs and will not be end trimming green lumber; carry the end sealer with the chain saw. After you cut a few logs to length, stop and apply sealer before the checking starts. This is the most effective way.
