Dyes and Buffing

Chris Andrew
>I have some pieces that have been colored with aniline dyes then given a couple coats of Danish Oil finish. I would like to buff them using the Beal system but am fairly certain I'll pick up the dye on the buffing wheels even though I've put on Danish Oil. In the past I have built up a lacquer coat and buffed that out, but don't want to do that on these pieces. Can anyone recommend a way to seal the finish/dye so I can buff without turning my buffing wheels pretty colors?
