redissolve anchor seal?
« on: June 01, 2014, 06:56:43 PM »
Recently started using it, and I have a cut with a cut lid for my brush.  Some of the left over started drying in the cup.  Can I redissolve it?  Will just water do it?  Alcohol?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Brad the thing I would do is take a small amount and try mixing it with water. You should soon know if that's the fix if not try the alkie. Frank C.

Anchor Seal starts turning to wax pretty quick. I would think you would have to heat it.

Some guys use Anchor Seal to tumble lube cast bullets, its kinda like commercial floor wax. Frank C.

It is water soluable.  Very hot water would do the trick, I suspect.

I have Baileys end seal and it started thickening up.  Just added cold (sorry Poston) water, put the cap back on the 5 gal bucket and mixed well by shaking/sloshing.   It is a waxy emulsion I assume similar to Anchor Seal.

Glad it workI had no idea, I was just guessing a solution.  :) I started using Anchor Seal last year after learning about it on the FF. It has saved my crack lots of times.  ;D
