  • Minwax Antique Oil

    Does anyone know what to use to thin the antique oil? I poured mine into a mason jar for ease of use and it has started to thicken and I threw away the can and have not been able to fine one close by to check out the instructions, thanks.

    Most solvent based products can be thinned with Mineral Spirits. I haven't used it for a while but Antique Oil is basicly a thinned varnish that may have some Tung oil in it. You are better off and cheaper off mixing your own blend. A common ratio is 1/3 Mineral Spirits, 1/3 Varnish, 1/3 Linseed or Tung oil.

    I tend to use Turpinetine instead of Mineral Spirits because I like the smell better. But for your need's stick with Mineral Spirits to thin the Antique Oil.

    Hope this Helps

    One more thing the Antique oil may have some bee's wax also. You can also add bee's to suit your needs in the above mixture I mentioned.

        New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

        It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

        Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

        I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
        on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
