CHEMICALS, Consumables and Notions

We hope you know the difference between your Chemicals and your Consumables, otherwise you need to be watched closely.

As far as the Notions go, most classification systems wind up with certain things of which there are not enough to make a separate group, or which defy classification. "Miscellaneous" doesn't seem to have a compelling ring to it. Who wants to read a catalog section called "miscellaneous"? Thus, our title. And besides, sometimes all you need is a great notion.

Whiting is used by the craftsman as a cleaning agent to help remove the residues from the work after the soldering operation. Whiting is one of the ingredients in polishing compounds, putties, paints, etc. This soft non-abrasive powder is usually applied with a stiff scrub brush. Its use is recommended particularly on copper foil shades to remove the flux and gum, and to give a high shine to the glass and metal.
