Blonde finish?
« on: May 07, 2016, 07:24:19 AM »
I have a VM 560 that needs little nicks and chips to be touched up. What is the best thing to use for this?

I don't think there are any retouch pens that will work with blonde cabinets.  I stay away from blonde sets for that reason unless they are in perfect condition.  Maghogany, walnut and cherry finishes, however, are easily retouched.

Hello,
Depending on how "blonde" the finish is after 60 years, you might try
Howard's Restore A Finish. If your finish is fairly yellowed/darkened, then you can
look at Howards' different colors that come close.
Try your color on the backside of the 560, where you can "test" it on a small size area.

Howards makes a neutral color product, that I've used to just smooth out the
old finish dings on blondies.
