Pharmacist Formula head cement?

Post by troutfisher »

My bottle of Pharmacist Formula head cement has become funny-looking. Although it is labeled as being a no-thinner formula, I suspect adding some thinner would help since the cement has also become rather thick. Anyone know what would be the right thinner to use on this particular product?

Thanks for this link, Ed. I am rapidly nearing the last of my Griff's supply and this article provides much info on potential replacements.

Try methylethelketone (sp?)....MEK. I usually take a bit on a toothpick, and try it.
Good luck!
