I hafted my first hatchet the other day, and also it come out quite good. It has an 18.5oz plumb head and also 18" hickory handle. I generally use businessman Joe"s jojoba oil ~ above wood, i beg your pardon is yes, really a liquid wax in ~ room temperature. However, this time I used boiled linseed oil since it appears to it is in the go-to stuff because that axe and hatchet handles. Bottom heat is, I intensely dislike the ingredient from the floor up. Admittedly, I offered too much BLO and also got a difficult shinny result, but in any type of case the smell still it s okay me. It smells like severe version of rancid oil, and also I don"t prefer the feeling or the look. After several applications, the jojoba oil imparts a beautiful medium-dark natural wood color. The BLO will certainly take years of applications to gain the color I like. If I usage too much jojoba, a job or two later on it"s soaked up and gone. Mr knows that"s no the instance with BLO. I have read that boiled linseed oil have the right to be eliminated with turpentine, repaint thinner, or mineral spirits. Is one better than the other? I likewise read the nothing will get every one of the BLO off, bummer. Will that inhibit the absorption of future jojoba oil applications? Thanks, vcb

You certain your gained BLO and not tung Oil or linspeed or something like that.BLO nevers gets difficult on me and wipe it off and also let it collection and it"ll soak in.You have the right to heat up the lumber a bit with a hair dryer or lay it in the sunlight if friend can discover sun, oh southern California you can see the sun, and also the oil will work to the surface where you can wipe turn off more.I"d more than likely wipe with mineral spirts first, just a little on a rag, don"t soak or anything and also it need to remove sufficient that your jojoba (never used it myself) will certainly take.

Yup, absolutely BLO. The main problem is that ns was supplied to utilizing jojoba oil. You placed it on and don"t need to wipe the off. I put the BLO on but didn"t wipe that off and also ended up with a thick difficult mess. I"m not certain the smell would bother the median person. However, I deserve to tell if someone has actually been eat potato chips ~ above the other side that a room. The just thing I"m missing are the lengthy floppy bloodhound ears.

BLO absolutely is nasty in details ways, but I like just how tacky it is. Especially for stuff favor axe handles. No idea how to remove it though.

I wonder if it"s a reaction to the Hickory? I recognize I"ve offered it prior to but no a lot. Mine never gets sticky, wipe it turn off the next day. I usage it sparingly and rub that in well however often time lay the on after that and wipe off.I sometimes thin in a bit with mineral soul to go in mine checkering. If it"s as well thick the clogs it every up and also you have to recut the totality deal.

Here is a good solution... BLO and also cosmoline room both effected by WD40. Cosmoline is an ext easily clear all away with WD, yet it likewise works v BLO. WD is water dissolve so don"t worry around wood damage. Just use the WD 40 top top a rag and wiped . Resoak the rag with WD once needed and exhange the rag for a new one when the ahead one gets mucked up.
