I would be very careful about what you use to thin epoxy (two part) rod finishes. Alcohol is usually not a solvent with them and since it is not a solvent, it can really mess up the curing of the finish and can turn it into a sort of congealed snot that never dries. If you feel the need to thin a 2-part finish, use the solvent the manufacturer recommends, and use is very sparingly - a little goes a long way. Also, only use the manufacturer's recommended solvent with the finish already mixed for proper results.
