    I've never cut RLO with turps or done any of that. I use a nice sunny day out back to warm up the cleaned woodwork and apply it straight up with a sponge paint brush. Let it soak in a bit and rub it out gently in light circular motions with 0000 steel wool while wet. Wipe off the excess with a blue paper shop towel and take a toothbrush to make sure there is no excessive buildup in the insetting and bearings. Let sit overnight and continue the process as many times as you want until the wood stops taking it in. It's really simple, non toxic and they turn out perfect every time.

    So all I could find was Crown boiled linseed oilicon... I assume it has to be raw linseed oil even if itís Crown?

    Or flaxseed oil?

    You can get RAW Linseed Oil from Wal-mart; order it online, its free shipping or have it shipped to your local store, https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sunnyside...d-Oil/38755119

    or True Value Hardware stores. You can also get it at places like BLICKS that sell art and oil painting supplies.

    Just ask them to order it if you don't want to get it online. My ACE hardware guy keeps it in stock all the time now. All you have to do is communicate. Ask them!

    Cinders, The correct original Australianicon military finish is 50/50 raw linseed oilicon and creosote. It has that very nice cancer causing aroma too!

    Think I'll give the creosote a wide berth having applied it to the bottom of Red gum & Jarrah strainer posts in the days when OHS did not exist well not for a farmhand they didn't.....

    I remember the smell of creosote well from when I was a youngster, with it being used on the bottom of our new fence posts. I don't seem to recall any bugs bothering me then....

    Raw linseed oilicon is used as a laxative for cows. Look in a dairy farm supply shop. Or look in Home Depot.
    The stuff doesn't dry well when used on wood either. Takes much longer, usually 3 days vs 24 hours to dry.
    "...Horrible on a military rifle..." Aside from being relatively cheap, BLOicon drying to a varnish like finish was the idea.

    That is only true if you slosh the stuff on, if applied correctly it activates and drys in a day and ready for the next coat. Seem people have no patience and try and rush things. Most vintage military arms used RLO

    Sunray I stand by my comment, I can't abide a varnished type finish on a Milsurp, RLO avoids this issue....
