You can also wrap plumbers' teflon tape around the threads of the jar before putting the lid on, and it won't stick.

That's a great idea.  I wish I had thought of that.  It would have saved me a lot of grief.

So. Got an update on my shipment:
"We are going to ship your order as soon as possible and apologize for the delay..."

Since it came at midnight, it looks like an automated server message, based on order date.
Since @Hans Mertens mentioned that it might be 2-3 months, due to his experience, I'm not surprised...

I'll keep you updated. [emoji854]

Good idea! Is it true spraying keyboard cleaner (duster) in the jar extends the shelf life of shellac?

I have never heard of that.  If this works like Bloxygen then that might help, but I think that shellac just has a 'shelf life' and once that time is exceeded then it will not perform as it should.  I think it would be safer just to use fresh shellac on an important surface/project rather than try to save a few bucks only to find that the shellac will not harden after the fact.

I've used a ton of shellac in my day, but I'm far from an expert on the subject.  I normally use super blonde in a 1/2 lb cut for coating the insides of drawers and the like.  Last year I use quite a bit of garnet on a two-door project, but this was sprayed on to insure an even finish.

Shellac is my preferred finish for nearly all of my projects.

Thanks for your post.

No problem. 

I only wish I had known about these jars ten years ago.  One good thing though, is that my cussin' will be much reduced with these neat jars. My dog will really like that. [thumbs up]

I know Hans said don't throw unkind words at toolnut. But they frequent this forum and if they know IP is being compromised by a product they are selling, I question my purchasing from them in the future unless they address this ethically. There are plenty of festool dealers out there for me to choose from.
