I have always loved the graphics of KUHLS, so when I found this brochure on ebay I scooped it up and now sharing with you. But as I look at the design I started to did in and do some research on the company. Which BTW, is not really around. In fact the trademark is closed. So it’s gone! But I did find a can with a Benjamin Moore logo on it, which kinda tells me it was bought by them back in the 50’s or 60’s .
BUT, I did find some more digging on ebay of all places. Vintage cans and brochures tell a story for sure. And one thing caught my eye. ASBESTOS!
Yup. That word! And then my brain filled in the rest. NOW! TO BE CLEAR, I am not sure of the internal makings of old marine compounds. But its fare to say its full of stuff that you should avoid.
And it lead me to think as stated above. . ALWAYS A BAD IDEA BTW. As you are restoring that wonderful time capsule barn find. Be careful what you are cleaning and sanding, and creating dust with. The one thing for sure to avoid with Asbestos is dust. If any of you are into this sort of thing, it’s an interesting topic to discuss as we go indoors and to work on our boats.
