We've got our plane tickets booked! I am looking forward to being there.

We will also be discussing basic wood restoration theory and the advantages of using the Extreme Solutions, Inc. Wood-Restoration System. If you've ever wanted to see for yourself how products like HD-80, EFC-38 and Citralic Brightener/Neutralizer work this is your chance. If you come to the Round Table you will get the chance to get some Hands-on experience with Wood-Tux WET. There is also a very good chance that we will unveil the NEW Wood-Tux DMC for the first time outside the St. Louis test market.

Extreme Solutions, Inc. Will be teaming up with Sub Brite Supply to bring you a demonstration of the Wood-Tux WET system. Pete and Tracy from Sun Brite are bringing a demonstration deck with them. This deck is currently protected with Ready Seal.

For our demonstration we will strip, neutralize/brighten and then stain the deck all witin about one hours time. Depending on the weather conditions we may even be walking on the deck by the end of the demonstration. This will be a great opportunity to come and see how Wood-Tux WET can help you to maximize your profitability!

In addition, everyone who attends the demonstration will walk away with FREE HD-80, EFC-38, Citralic Brightener/Neutralizer and Wood-Tux WET to take home and experiment with either on a job or in your shop! This could be this biggest Round Table Meeting yet, come and be a part!

Hope to see you all there. . .

Best of Luck!

Rod and I will be there, and are bringing sample boards to be stripped as well with the following products installed on them:

  • Sikkens Cetol DEK- Base coat and 4 more layers on top - total 5 coats, graduated board so you can see the layers.
  • Sikkens SRD
  • Cabot Solid white stain WITH the problem solver primer under it
  • TWP
  • CWF
  • Wood Tux (of course)
  • Cabot's Australian Timber Oil.
  • Olympic Maximum

Some of these are tougher than others are. Some are a nightmare, some are a breeze.

This should be a fun day!

It's a toss up at present :) I might tilt toward the good old Southern barbeque, hush puppies, etc...

I'm going to start another quick thread to get just a head count - We're putting together packages for attendees and although several of you have pre-registered and sent money (THANK YOU!) I still need a better head count - I think I may be having more than I initially anticipated!

I hope the weekend treated everyone well. I thought I'd throw my shopping list out there to the folks coming to the NC roundtable this weekend. I'm bringing cash (and most likely some cigars and darts), lots of questions, and ready to bargain. I'm looking for a new/used 16", 19", 20"ish surface cleaner, trailer mounted HP reel, trailer mounted supply reel, and possibly an extension wand. This is the short list...I'll also be interested in stuff I really need but just don't know it yet that I need it:)

My current setup is a standard 5x8 open utility trailer with a portable 2400/4.5 Simpson beltdrive cold unit. I do residential housewashes with M5 xjet. I need more effeciency on sidewalks and drives. Considering adding roofs and more knowledge and equipment to get into wood in the future. I'm thrilled that wood and deck resto will be a big topic for this weekend. Hands on is good!

Keep in mind that we'll have door prizes at the Round Table as well! We have a subscription to Cleaner Times Magazine (for non PWNA members), a Powerwashers Guidebook sent by Cleaner Times Magazine, 50' of 3/8" Goodyear hose (Pressure Tek) and a gun & lance assembly (Pressure Tek). Steve Rowlett's new Magnum extension wand will be available for sale as well!

I'm still looking for a headcount folks - I know there's more than just 7 of us!
