Resin stains

I just got the tt from his winter hideway.
There appear to be stains of resin on the body and the windows.
Who knows a proper way to get rid of them?

I am afraid that I can't get it over here.

But the problem is solved, simpler then I thought.
Just ordinary spirits does the job perfectly. Perhaps because the resin is not so old yet. The thicker clots take more time.

>>oak, hickory, black walnut, hackberry

Latin names for which would be quercus (several varieties), carya ovata, juglans nigra, and celtis australis.

Trees

Jana, Pine trees for one, can cause some pretty big problems. They can drip stuff that is worse that the yuckiest glue.

Pine trees
That's it. Dead pine trees.
I found the word 'deal' in the dictionary. Correct?

Deal - If you mean as in 'Here's the deal' then you are correct.

It's a much used slang and totally understandable. Sort of like saying, 'here's what happened' or 'this is what caused it' or 'here's the deal.'

Of course, I must warn you. I am from Texas and, as such, pretty much speak differently than others, so I stand to be corrected. ;)

Dead trees?

Okay, Lex, I have to ask: How can dead trees have sap? Are they kind of dying or on their way to being dead? Is that the deal?

First about 'deal': my dictionary says that's the English word for what we call 'vurehout'.
Now I am going to speculate. 'Vurehout' is timber from fir trees (picea abies). The English word for the Dutch word 'vuur' is 'fire'. So perhaps 'vurehout' is originating from 'fir wood'????
'Vurehout' keeps bleeding resin for a long time, even if it is supposed to be dead.

Lex, Barkeeper's Friend also works well on sap. It took off the sap on our tt without much scrubbing.

Lex,

I'm speculating that vuurhout refers to the fuel wood characteristics of the knots of conifers (pine, fir, cypress, etc.). When the tree dies, the sap concentrates in the knots. One can use those knots as fuel wood. The knots (or knees) light readily even when wet and they burn very hot. It makes a smoky fire.

If you camp in a pine or fir forest, find fallen trees and knock off the knots where the limbs once joined the trunk. If the knots don't come off readily, it's not ready for burning.

Leave it to Morgan...

to get us on the right track.

According to Webster's Dictionary of the English Language (which translates English words to English speaking people like me who don't know their own language very well), the definition of deal (the noun, not the verb) is: 1. a board or plank, esp. of fir or pine, 2. such boards collectively, 3. fir or pine wood.

So, there you go. My definition belonged in the jokes section under 'Texas Definitions.' Learn something everyday.

Sorry, Lex.....Thanks, Morgan

Oh, you're good, Suz.

My speculation was about vuurhout, not deal. I sure didn't know of that meaning for deal. It took our lowlander friend, Lex, to show us. :colors
