    Product update~ "Caswell Font Sealer" I love this stuff, the only issue I have is that its so thick and sticky getting it out of the can can be a real science project. Mixing to correct ratio is CRITICAL~ They provide a mixing / measuring cup but pouring the right amount out of the cans can be a challenge. What I do now is as soon as I get a fresh order of the stuff in ( I probaly use at least a gallon a year) is drill hole in the lid-- and hot clue a 45 copper pipe elbow in, it makes pouring easy and much more accurate. Then I just stick a rubber stopper in until next time I need it. They say a kit is enough to do one font-- but if you mix 75ml of the stuff its sufficient for 2 fonts . At only 15 bucks a font you are way ahead saving those old treasures !! THANX CASWELL-- a great product caswell1.jpg
