    Jon,
    I've gone thru about 2/3 of a gallon, treated primarily buckeye burl plus some sweet spalted ringer birch. Couldn't be happier with results. :yipee: Thickest piece was buckeye burl block about 2x2x6, give or take. I have a friend who does segment work who will be cutting into some of the larger BEB blocks, but I expect they will be completely stabilized judging by weight difference alone. I am pretty sure specific gravity on these has gone past 1...or close to it. Will have to see if they have any float left. :wacko1:
    Only thing I've done is a couple pens, but was really pleased with results.
    I do suggest to anyone using a toaster oven or even conventional to use a thermometer to verify temp...which was about 50 deg hotter than actual.
    I'm using the dry method, but even after introducing the resin, and having pulled vacuum for half to whole hour, still get out gassing. Could be residual moisture boiling out. My stock is kiln dried, but then sitting in shop easily rise to perhaps 8-10 % MC.
    Likewise...I'll be getting more.

    Nice video, it's one thing to read about a process or a product, but it really is better to see something being done. Thanks for doing this video.:good::good2:

    Hey I have just a couple of comments on your very good video. You should leave your pump running when you release the vacuum to keep your pump from locking up under vacuum. Also you should use a oven thermometer to make sure of your cure temp. I have learned these lessons from the 4 years I have been stabiliziing . Jon has some great chambers and resin. I was lucky enough to be a tester of this resin when Jon was developing it . The ZK TR90 resin is the best out there . Troy

    Running it while releasing the vacuume explains a lot.... Because mine did lock up a couple times and I didn't know why, thanks. And I did get a thermometer just can't see it in the video :). Thanks for the input, I'm still new at stabilizing..
