I'm sure that this isn't what you wanted/expected to hear, and I'm sorry that you will be dealing with potentially unanticipated costs and liabilities.  Hopefully, you will be able to find a safe, legal and inexpensive disposal option.  


This should serve as a general reminder that we need to know and understand the consequences/risks before purchasing any known and unknown chemicals/glazes.  Once we insert ourselves into the chain of ownership, we become responsible for the proper storage, handling, transportation and disposal of these products.  Do your due diligence and do not buy other people's problems!

<snip> Now last thing, It turns out the wheel is going clockwise instead of counter-clockwise. I am still trying to figure out how to reverse it, i know it is possible but I haven't quite understood how. There was no manual so that is annoying.

I'm not familiar with these wheels, but the description on Bailey's website indicates that there is a reversing plug that is used change wheel direction.  If you can't figure it out, Bailey offers great support of their products.  Give 'em a call and ask them to provide you with a manual too.

<snip>  Only problem I've had with Bailey's is with their free shipping code for small tools, it doesn't work whenever I've tried to use it.  <snip>





If you are requesting shipping into Canada, I think you might be running up against the fine print on the Bailey free shipping offer on small tools and brushes-


"*Free Freight/Shipping in contiguous US only, applies to in stock items only, minimum order must be $25 after discounts are applied. Some restrictions apply." 


I just ordered some small tools a few weeks ago and the website discount code worked fine.  Bailey's price on Mudtools seems to be a low as anywhere I've seen. 





Thanks, but I have a US postal box and still can't ship. Their sale emails I get have the small tools free shipping on the weekend and yet they are closed then so I can't call it in. I've tried emailing them (twice), no response so just gave up and bought locally. What I really wanted from there is one of the do-all trim tools, can't get them here, shipping to Canada is silly expensive from just about everywhere. The free shipping code for Bailey's that I have is "STFS" is that the same one you used?


Yes - that's the code I've used.  If I recall correctly, I think you have to enter in your shipping zipcode first - then after that you can type in the code and click the apply button. As a backup, I also put the code/offer in the notes section of the order.  Bailey always sends a pre-ship email of the order and gives you a day to confirm/correct before they ship.  This way if something happens, you could talk with them during normal business hours.




edit - you have to press the calculate shipping button
