I've just poured my first countertop and had a ghosting issue. I read in the forum of another individual with a ghosting issue and you replied the only remedy was to paint or redo. My question is when you say paint.....would a semi transparent stain like Eco stain work or would it need to be a solid stain? I've put so much effort, time and money into this that I don't want to just scrap it.
Hope you are doing well. We had talked about a sample of your natural matte UV sealer - I would still like to get a sample and also - if you can send a sample - I need some more polishing pads - 4" this time. Thanks.
Bryan If you can send the sample and the pads today - pls call me at 828-850-2487
Tom, I talked to you a few years back about being in Chicago and picking up some supplies. Well I thought I could get a hold of you today but I found out about the summer hours. If you are going to be around over the weekend could you please give me a call and I will drive over any time. Not only would I like to save the shipping but I need to get a top started on Monday. Thanks a bunch,
Thanks Tom, look forward to receiving the pads so I can get in to things down here.Sourcing product does seem to be the biggest hassle here so good to have a resource such as yourself. Keep in touch if you make it down this way, my profile pic is on the lake across the road from home.
Hey Tom! I do believe I spoke with you on the phone a few weeks back. As you can see this has become addictive for me. Anyway I will be giving you a call sometime in the near future.Looks like i'm going to be needing some supplies. If you don't mind I would like to pick your brain for some info on mix desighn and sealers? BTW thanks for the invite!
hey tom, do you know if methyl hydrate can be used as the denatured alchol to mix with the eap sealer. when i was talking to you earlier about my mix not wetting out enough, i did max out the glenium dosage but still not enough. alla had mentioned that i was using the wrong sand (silica sand) no good i guess.............. am going to try bagged masionary sand later. thanks for the help.

I would be very interested in sampling Optimum 380. Perhaps after the holidays I will talk to you about it. My wife just had our second baby girl Saturday so I am putting countertops on hold for a few weeks. I will be doing a kitchen island and a bathroom vanity at my house after the holidays so I would love to try some for those projects. Thank you Matt
Hi Tom, I think I talked with you on the phone. Ilive up in BC Canada. I was hoping you would be able to give me some info on courses that are offered. Which ones do you think are most worth taking? I have done a few wet cast counters and no grfc. I have a small flatwork company and am very familer with that aspect of the bussiness. I am looking for something that covers mold design, mixes, grinding and sealing. As there are a few courses out there I don't want to waste time or money on one that is set up for the hobbeyist. Thanks for your time and any advice you can offer. Patrick
Hey tom, I have not had a chance to use the new densifer, just as the cobbler has not finished his shoes... I will be using it on my new office floor, just need to color it, then apply densifer and finish the polish.. lifer is a million miles an hour
