Default BIN as a universal primer

Spring cleaning.
I'm trying declutter my storage as well as my mind. Is there any surface or circumstance in which BIN shellac wouldn't be the best or nearly best choice as a prime/seal coat?
I've got 8 different primers I'm throwing out and thinking that's ridiculous. Am I missing something?
One gun all, shellac all the time.

Also if I decide to go strictly with shellac should I buy it dry and mix my own? Cost savings that way? Are there any secrets to it?

I'm sure I'm stating the obvious and that you're already aware of this, but BIN is limited to being only used for spot priming on exterior surfaces.

The drawbacks to shellac are its brittle, and non permeable, and of course the explosion hazard from spraying it. While I don't see why it couldn't work for an all purpose interior primer, I don't think it's always the best option.

Can't believe I didn't think of this before, but the cost would be pretty prohibitive to consider it as an all purpose primer. From the sounds of it as I think Gough mentioned on here at some point, the ingredients are just going to get more and more expensive pretty quickly from here on out.

Why not just use paint and primer in one?

So you post something you have to apologize for before you send it?

I would think it would be to brittle for either, but what do I know, I rarely use the stuff, it stinks and it's too expensive.

I think of BIN as the ultimate adhesion and stain blocking primer.

But even limited to cabinets and furniture, I don't like it as the best sanding primer, especially on new wood.

What are the 8 different primers you have been using?

If you list all the primers you have had a need for in the past year I'd bet people here would be able to suggest how to pare those down to an essential 2 or 3, especially now that we know you only do cabs and furniture.
