  • linseed oil

    ??? Boiled linseed oil. when used as an antiquing glaze, sometimes takes forever to dry. Has anyone discovered a process to reduce this time. (Ever notice at a carving show how some carvings reek of the stuff?) or...
    Does anyone know of a suitable substitute that accomplishes the same thing (ie. fill in the unpainted separations between various colors on carrictures) Antique waxes do not produce the same effect.

      Watco Danish Oil is almost the same as linseed oil, only with a drying agent.

      It mixes with oil paint, looks like linseed oil finish, drys in 3 hours, no stink... works well for me

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
