He had me wondering too, just had to look. Great idea though, might have to get me some, but I think I will stick to clear.

Guy I worked with used to use the black to cover scratches on scopes and their rings. Said it worked real well.
I'll bet it would work great for painting screw heads black when needed.

When I tie flies I use Hard As Nails for head cement. I had a screw that kept comig loose in my glasses, it has not moved since I hit it with that.

I just went and looked in my shop because I couldn't remember the brand and sure enough it was Hard As Nails.

I've also used it to coat wrapping thread in rod building as well as a head cement when tying flies.

Have been waiting for someone to mention this and im shure a lot of the guys have done this too. cork float in Lawn Boy mowers use to be routinely coated in lacquer and as was stated earlier nail polish was for the most part lacquer diyed red, or pink, or blue etc....so it was not unusal to find a pink or blue foat (made me laugh).
Some of GT Talk's members may remember my 2A016 twin cylinder engine on the Ariens Sno Thro had the cork float, after leaving a spare carb's cork float coated with lacquer in the carb filled with ethanol laced gas for a 4 mounths i have passed it, good to go, dipping the float at least 2 time between drying.
Any question regarding this please ask.

P.S. no, i did not dip it in hot pink, just clear lacquer but was very tempted :dancingbanana:

My only question is did you thin the nail polish or use it as-is?

Thined it, the original was too thick and sappy like honey and would of dried with drips, runs and may have made the float too heavy, thanks for asking, i forgot to mention it.

I've been using it on guns for years and have used the "other girly thing" to stop the blood flow from stupid things I have managed to do to myself. They both work! :-)

years old ago I heard of a woman that wanted her corvette paint the same color that she painted her finger nails with.
the body shop had to buy a lot of cases of that finder nail paint. they could not buy it in bulk. that cost her a small mint to paint her corvette
