@LEACHY48 can I ask what polish or compound do you apply to the bats after final sanding?? I do a lot of refurbs for club mates etc and use as has been said 80/120/240 on my sander but would love to get that as new look again with a polish after sanding.
I dont currently own a orbital polisher so I may well get one of these but would like to order a polish to apply before adding new scuff etc

@SOULMAN1012 I use my own bat wax made with white beeswax and raw linseed mate the polisher is great mate best investment I've made in terms of a refurb

Could I purchase a tub/pot of your own bat wax? Give it a try over the Salix bat wax Iv always used?

I've not actually got much left mate, my current tub is almost empty, you are more than welcome to have a tub of mine when I make my next batch which should be next week sometime if you just cover the postage? @SOULMAN1012

It won't make a difference. A buffing whelk may do it a few seconds quicker.

Find the key to an optimum finish is the quality of the sanding tend to use  400 grit  paper  from a specialist supplier.

One other quick question.

Whats the best glue to use when glueing cracks?

Ive always used PVA glue in the past but its dried up so before i buy some more i wanted to double check.

Thanks

I use the gorilla PVA. Find it does a good bind . But it's just a premium PVA..

It's not a PVA it's a polyeurathane glue and it cures very differently.
