Default Re: French polishing for beginners.

Leather is getting difficult as it is all tanned abroad (there is only one UK tanner left) so replacing leather flat and round belts, Belatta belts and dressing for old woodwork machinery is a pain the posterior. And as for proper cast-steel/carbon-steel chisels... forget it! Even the dear old EU is hell bent on stopping us using shellac and anything which contains 'volatile' substances which don't bring in a healthy tax return!!

Old and cynical - me?!
