    does dawn and water degrease as good as mineral spirits and can you dry the birds just as fast using dawn?

    RDA..glad to see someone brave enough to dip their toes in the taxidermy net white gas pond. Not long ago the mere mention of the word "gas" would bring a flood of less than helpful comments.keep up the good work!

    I love the smell of white gas in the morning. Or maybe early afternoon with all the fumes I get a little confused ;D

    well as the prezeedunt of the GASSASS MALINGERERS society, I feelits my duty to spread THE GOOD WORD!! ;) :D ;D
  9. been using coleman fuel for forty years and it still works,make a screen out of hardware cloth with the edges bent down to hold bird off of bottom about 2-3 inches so it doesn't sit in the grease and water in the bottom.
