    The more I look into Solarez it's going to be a no. I've read a few things people have had problems with it, guitars take a lot of work to build just don't want to spend the $$ or time experimenting with it. BTW I 've been experimenting Aquacoat seems to work well and I have some.

    Strip a brittle Foto Flame and refinish

    Nitro might be a good choice Duplicolor is enamel would probably mess it up. I would tesat it first

    I'm considering using Solarez to fill a guitar. I've read some older post sounds kind of yes & no. Watched a couple videos looks interesting. I did read the top coat solarez can be a pain to spray. Also if I use it as a filler can I spray lacquer over It? Any thoughts on Solarez?

    Optimized vs standard 5e3 layout?

    I've built one, If (when) I build another 5E3 it will be the optimized version I really like it. Also on that build I did not twist the filament wires. .

    Processing/Dimensioning Lumber

    I have a pretty complete garage shop, but this is my humble router sled I use on end grain cutting boards it just as good as any fancy one. I also have a 16" planer and a 16/32 drum sander, end grain and a planer could get pretty messy.
