BTW, Here is my #1 top building tip:  When you finish with an epoxy brush, squeegee out the excess, put it on a paper towel on top of a piece of poly.  Saturate with some MEK, roll it up in the towel and poly with a bit of the towel exposed to air and weight it with a brick.  Next day you will have a brand new brush and you don't use a lot of solvent.  ?

I don’t use MEK, but tried that with Acetone last night.  I just opened it up, expecting the paper towel to be stuck to the brush but NO, it worked perfectly!

Thanks Kent! ?
