    Birchwood Casey has a product called Stock Sheen & Conditioner. They say "It will take your finish down to a hand rubbed satin finish".

    So since I want a satin finish, I was wondering if using it might be better, in some way, than using 0000 steel wool. Anybody ever used this stuff, or have any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Personally, I stay away from anything with silicone in it...

    Since I don't know, you won't mind me asking: what's undesirable about silicone?

    Thanks

    Silicone can act as a release agent.

    Some things, paint, finish, etc will not stick to it.

    Sorry, yes Chariie's right. Once you've got silicone on it, it's difficult to refinish or get anything else to stick to it. I've not run into major problems personally, but have heard enough to continue avoiding it so as not to gain a negative experience... :)
