This probably isn't new to a lot of folks, but Acks wood paste offers a 10/% discount right now. So the standard paste and
polish kit is about 33 bucks with shipping. Also, they are having some problems with a scammer called BigMart.com that is trying to sell Acks at 91.00, plus 38 dollarsshipping. Acks is trying to get them off of Google, but his sales dropped right down to 0 with that being
advertised at 91.00.

What are the advantages to using Acks or YG over finer sandpaper? I've avoided buying some, because I don't need another can sitting on my shelf that I need to work around. But if it works better then I'm all in.

Ack's is by far the the best retail paste but I have made my own and I did a side by side and I saw no reason to pay 45 bucks for 4 oz when I made 32 oz for 28 dollars. If any one wants to try some just pay for postage and I will send you a jar. I also made cutting board and bowl butter that is 100%food safe and this butter will never go bad. I use walnut oil instead of mineral oil.
