Putting poly on floors

Q: What is the best way to put the poly on your floors? I keep getting fish eyes w/ a poly roller.

How do I get rid of them, and make the finish look good?

A: I can already see part of your problem. This roller is injecting air into the finish. If it sets up before the air can escape, fish eyes are the result. You are going to have to buff off the fish eyes or scrape them out. You will have to buff the entire floor at any rate, or you won’t gain adhesion between coats. Make sure there is no air blowing across the floor for several hours after application. Use a lambs wool applicator.
