As a person in the paint/coatings industry, I know that Ace has their own factory in Matteson Illinois to make paint. The MSDS lists Ace Paint Division as the manufacturer. I would have thought that this would have been a vendored item.

I said it was only $127 question. Perhaps I was remembering that they were the one that was different. Back in the day, many hardware stores made their own from linseed oil, lead paste, and tint. Sounds like Ace started out that way and kept at it.

Everything I ever sold went into latex, I've never had a boat with exterior varnish, so I'm not weighing in.

After using Schooner Varnish for the last fifteen years down here in Florida, a friend talked me into trying Awlspar, what a difference, goes on way easier without thinning and I was putting on three coats a day without sanding, which the manufacturer says is acceptable.
