Maybe it varies from place to place, but I know the acetone and lacquer
thinner I buy are totally different in smell and in function.  I also
buy a 100% Naptha thinner for the POR-15 paint I use and it is quite
different than the mineral spirits I've used as far as how it thins that
paint.  The naptha product is about 4X the cost of the spirits as well.
