Guys,<P>Is there a better way,other than sanding,to get rid of a cigarette burn mark on top a wood radio? The burn does not look too deep in the wood veneer.<P>P.S. I also have another wood radio that once had the wrong dial lamp installed, causing a similar burn on the cabinet.<P>Any suggestions on how to fix these?<P>Thanks,<P> Eric<P>------------------<BR>

First of all, I assume your going to strip the whole cabinet !! After you do, treat the cabinet with Oxalic Acid, and make sure you get a lot of it on the burn. It may come out and it may not !!<BR>You can take it out with broken glass or sanding, BUT what ever you do your going to see the repair worse than if you just left it !!<BR>What I would do is if Oxalic Acid did not take it out, just leave it in. To me it’s part of the character of an Antique. Grandpa laid his cigarette down on it !! <BR><P>------------------<BR>Rick Dippolito<BR>THE PHILCO RESTORER at<BR> <A HREF="http://hometown.aol.com/philcorestorer/myhomepage/index.html" TARGET=_blank>http://hometown.aol.com/philcorestorer/myhomepage/index.html</A>
