View Full Version : EEE's BACK - By popular demand.

:2tsup: is back on the label again :2tsup:

Seems we freaked out too many people by dropping the EEE from our labels and just calling it Ultra Shine.
Not only that but people were convinced we'd changed the formula and that it had all gone down the gurgler.

WRONG.... The only thing to change was the wording on the label.

Well it's back and it's here to stay.
Don't care if it makes sense or not to non Aussies.

Bit like Vegemite really - Us Aussies get it, the rest of the world doesn't.









Speaking of EEE-Ultra Shine

I currently have for sale a number
of 5 litre industrial size tins.
Price per tin is $220 incl gst

That's a massive saving of $176
Work it out....
20 x 250 ml jars = 5 litres
at $19.80 a jar = $396.00

As a rule these are only available by special order as we don't keep
them on the shelf. However a double order and a bit of a mix up on
behalf of a couple of schools who both ordered EEE instead of
Traditional Wax, has left us with a number of them sitting here waiting
to be sold to the first ones in with the money.

Good way to buy for a school, club, business or share among your
mates to save a few dollars.

To order: send an email to [email protected] or phone:
03 5221 8775 between 10am & 4pm Monday to Friday
outside those hours you can leave a message.

Cheers - Neil :U

EEE, that's good news, lad

What does/did the eee stand for?

18th Mar 2009, 03:33 PM
triple E = tripoli

18th Mar 2009, 04:16 PM
Tripoli - It's the abrasive powder used in the wax to make it cut and polish so finely.

Tripoli stone is a friable abrasive, which means it keeps breaking into smaller and smaller pieces that continue to sand the surface you are working. Effectively this means it works up through the grit grades naturally, until it turns into dust.As described by Cruzi in this thread (http://www.woodworkforums.com/showthread.php?t=79370)

The Tripoli used is called AFC (air float cream) which will give you an idea just how fine it is.

Skew ChiDAMN!!

Sounds like you are in for it Skew OH BOY!:oo:
Maybe we might get free samples(Us good guys anyway,not Skew:D)
Just to check if it is any good.Then we could let Skew know.
I have never used it:wink::roll:

:doh: I invested in 4 x bottles of EEE in the hope that they'd increase in value :shrug: looks like I'll have to use them now. :2tsup:

I still haven't finished the bottle I bought in May 2002 yet. :-

It is nearly finished & I will be getting some more. :2tsup:

I've used rottenstone in the past, but I've never tried EEE. It sounds excellent. What do most people here use it for - bowls, pens or funiture?

19th Mar 2009, 08:14 AM
I use it on pens

19th Mar 2009, 09:11 AM

:yes: :2tsup:

I use it as the last thing before waxing with Trad wax when I do a shellac and wax finish and as the final step when I use Danish Oil.
But the best way to find out how to use it is to invest $30 and buy the bible (Polisher's Handbook) from UBeaut.
All is revealed therein and everything that I have done when follwoing Neil's advice to the letter has worked out fine (when I do my own thing, I can guarantee less than perfect results - so now I just re-read what Neil has to say and do that)

Think of it as rottenstone in a wax paste medium. :)

I use it for:
Almost everything on the lathe. As the final sand for large flat areas where I want a high gloss finish. As a cutting compound for large flat areas where the the finish is too glossy and I want to matte it back a bit. :rolleyes:

(I go through a fair bit of the stuff. Quick 'n easy to apply with good, uniform & repeatable results. Gives a professional finish with a layman's skills... what more could one ask? :2tsup:)

Thanks for the evaluation. :2tsup:

Works great on stone and horn as well

Does that mean the above is now more valuable as a collectors item? :U

21st Mar 2009, 11:11 AM
It's all very collectible Neil. Especially the ones for Holland with dead tree and dead fish on the label and in English, Dutch, German and French, the ones for Canada in French and English. etc, etc.

Sorry to dig up an old thread. I use EEE over hard shellac - very nice indeed.

Anyhow, I've also used it with poly, but was wandering if it'd work with water based acrylic paint?......I know, I know, dont ask - in short its a temporary thing until I have time to make something proper, just wandering if it'll work?

Hi Elill, I reckon it would, though to be sure, you are best trying it on a test piece first, just in case.
