  • I also agree. I’ve used straight shellac to do just this thing, painting alternate layers of conductive and insulation to make quick circuit boards and also repairs. And I too use shellac to coat copper windings for my coils (HV, Radio, Power and Inductors). In an emergency though, I’ve used nail polish. The polystyrene transparent stuff has a high dielectric coefficient and works with HV. I’ve also dabbed nail polish (any color) into breaks in medium power cables to protect from shorts and to seal from corrosion. The only problem with nail polish is, as a male I have more than once confronted a finger in my face telling me it proved that I am gay.

No public wish lists :(
