Thread: getting rid of nitromors

    getting rid of nitromors

    I used nitromors the way it's supposed to (in stripping down a stock), but it stuck in the checkering and has left a greenish colour on all the checkering areas that I don't seem to be able to wash out.

    ...so, how do I get the white/green nitromors colour out of the checkering?

    thoughts?

    Or more constructively you need another solvent to dissolve the dike and meth out. Use a tissue soaked in nail varnish remover followed by some alcohol then wipe over with water
    Below is a link to my website.

    White spirit and a stiff nail brush, one with natural bristles as the nitromors softens nylon ones.
    I never wash it off with water on stocks as it will lift the grain, white spirit doesn't.
    If the nitromors has gone really hard and dry a fresh application will soften it again.

    Nitromors dissolves the varnish into the grain of the wood. This can cause problems if your oiling the stock as it can become patchy. The best way to remove old varnish is to scrap it of with the back of a ground flat hacksaw blade.

    Really that's interesting to hear. Where did you get the information?

    I have used Nirtomors on every stock I have done with NO problems in gettign an oiled finsih the only problem I had was when i used red oil then tried to varnish over the top and it didn't work out.

    its changed colour because it has reacted to something other than varnish.
    good scrub out with a nailbrush soaked in a light alcohol should lift it

    Isopropyl alcohol and a fine brass wire brush, been there and flipping well had to do it.
