I love used sails
. They are often cheap
, and if your careful you can get someone else's masterpiece. Old Dacron cloth is somewhat of a challenge however. As I understand Dacron sailcloth it is weaved tightly, then treated with some type of enamel that is baked in. As I clean, manipulate and cut old sails
, they loose a lot of this enamel, if it wasn't already gone.
Question: Does anyone know where I can get some of this enamel/resin? Ideally, I could find some that doesn't have to be baked in high temps- but I can probably find some larger ovens.
What have others done to recondition sailcloth?
