I would think Wood Spirit would be Methanol / Wood Alcohol.Denatured alcohol (also called methylated spirits, in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom; wood spirit; and denatured rectified spirit) is ethanol that has additives to make it poisonous, bad-tasting, foul-smelling, or nauseating to discourage its recreational consumption
i can understand the increased water causing a longer drying time with 70-90% alcohol
but is it the additives in the denatured alcohol that makes it clean better??
Cue Wax for shafts applied using a lathe pin in your drill to spin the shaft. Make sure shaft is clean first.
i dont buy from joe much anymore
i have renaisance wax for my wood shafts
CHRISWhat you have will work on carbon fiber also.
i just want to say for the benefit of the readers who may not know who to listen to, since we often get opposing opinions. As far as carbon fiber shafts go Neil has probably been making carbon fiber shafts longer than anyone else on the forum. He was doing them years before they became popular. So I consider Neil to be the AZ grandfather of carbon fiber shafts.The information missing is the carbon shaft itself. What brand or type is it? Was it OK for you when you first got the cue shaft? After how much playing time did these problems start to occur ?Some people have sweaty hands, or are in humid places. If that is the case, then a cue glove is what I would recommend. Denatured or IPA, Isopropyl alcohol (Rubbing alcohol) or alcohol wipes, will work fine for cleaning most carbon fibre shafts. Some do have coating on them. Check with the shaft maker what the best product is to clean with first. As for the carbon shafts I was making, they were draw polished, so from tip to joint, with used 600 grit wet dry paper, and done with a water solution with a few drops of dish washing liquid as a surface tension breaking additive. After they were cleaned with IPA and a lens cloth. I was using a very difficult to obtain product for some shafts to make them super slick. But since most people are now using a glove with the carbon shafts, I have stopped using it. It was also a rather expensive product too.
