Uroboros & Spectrum Reactive colors

Over time we've accumulated lots of info in the archives about Bullseye's reactive colors. I'd like to know your experiences with Uroboros 90 & 96 as well as Spectrum 96. Anyone have notes on this?
Thanks,
Barbara

Thanks, Barbara -- the subtle colors in "Reflections" is the result of blending several Bullseye and Uroboros neutrals....I was trying to get a natural look that captured the shadings vs. a stark color variance. Both "Reflections" and "Bob" are 7" x 9" and about 1/2" thick. JJ Kudos, JJ... you succ...

Real nice, JJ.... Favorite is Reflections. Second favorite is Bob. What size are they? Reflections is a subtle standout.
Thanks, JJ, for showing these.

Re: 0146 BE steel blue question.

I would like to do this, but the customer is in a hurry, Hi Jim... try a fast test in your Quick-Fire with the little controller you made. (Yeah, yeah, you already thought of that and there's a real good reason not to, etc....right?) Would a color close to steel blue -- like 0164 -- be close enough...

This info probably won't help if you don't have this model. Nikki EXACTLY! Allen called today: can't help me because they don't make any parts for the 350 anymore.

Thanks for your ideas, guys... I spoke with Alan at Gryphon yesterday. This is model 350. It seems that the problem is the wheel adjustment. However, it may not be possible to fix it. Sometime this morning, the guy who designed the saw will call me to see what we can do, if anything. Alan said that ...
