I bid on a 2 oz bottle of GC red insulating varnish with starting bid of one cent. 7 day auction. no one else ever bid, so I got it for 1 cent + shipping total price 7 bucks.  Shocked

first time for everything I guess. I like to use this stuff as a combination solder joint sealer and HV arc protector for contaminated parts.

sounds likethe shipping's gone up! Is that a spray, or more like a goop or a corona dope?

I got a pile of GC electronic contact cleaner GC No. 210-4 / Walsco No. 80-04 - it was given to me if I would "get rid of it". 
Had to drive to Fort Worth (80 miles round trip) to get a case (16 bottles?) of it. contains 1-1-1-Trichlorothane, whatever that is. It does work well.

Superb degreaser and cleaner!  Excellent flux remover.  Excellent all around cleaner and solvent.  Good stuff!  Don't breathe it.   Use  ventilation.    Good score!

yeah, its basically a lighter formula corona dope. bottle has a brush applicator on it. last bottle I got I had to drive to Baltimore (75+ miles) to get it so with gas at 4.09  gallon here I'll take the 1 cent plus shipping.  Undecided

I guess shipping is not so bad. Just looked high in comparison to the fantastic price!
Maybe when you use it, you can show us the before and after pictures?
