Use of old varnish?

Postby JALL » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:11 pm

I have a pint can of varnish that I opened last year and started to use on my Cruisers Inc. It was stored in- doors all winter. Would a smart person start using this can again this year or open a new can? Thanks for any help!

All I can say is that if the "old timers" that taught me caught me not using an year old can of varnish they would have beat me with a stick. :shock:
Should be fine if it was sealed well and there were no chunks in it when you opened it.
