That was good. Thank you.
It was interesting to read about varnish since most in the UK use that term.

BEWARE

I don't recommend anyone mixing their own head cement using toluene, it has a nasty habit of giving you cancer. Not that bad once mixed and your not pouring it all over yourself.

Popperfly, It is not my intent to jump your post just wanted the DIY (do it yourself) folks to be careful and I think it's a great article and perfect timing as I was going to ask some questions about head cement tonight.

Very interesting article. I have never seen so many different head cements listed as in this article. Unfortunately, I would have liked to see more comparative commentary on the characteristics of the different head cements listed, such as water-based Loon's, etc.
