Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if Danish Oil will do the same job as sanding sealant? I'm having problems getting sanding sealant. Thanks in advance.

Daniish oil is very much like teak oil and is used to protect and dress outdoor funiture or wooden sculptures. Itleaves a residue which dries out over time.
I would say it is not suitable as a sanding sealer.Ihope this helps.

Thanks Mark. Unfortunately I am of the very few BigGrin people that doesn't have a credit card.

As for coming from bacon, it probably does. I'd never heard of it until today. BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

If you go onto tool post web site ( www. toolpost.co.uk) you can get aerosol trade quality sanding sealant. I've used the liquid from cornwall but much prefer the aerosol - quick, will get into the nooks and crannies and quick drying. Costs £6.64 plus postage. Have a look at the site I get Acrylic satin lacquer from them too. Kay Glare Cool Bored BigGrin

if you cant get it in your home town try phoning some of the companys on the internet some do take postal orders, and to me it is just wood filler watered right down to a wattery past with white spirt

hi cmb..what you do with oils is thin it for your first coat maybe 25% spirit and 75% oil apply it with a brush leave for a minute or so then go over it with a clean lint free cloth so you take off the remaining oil that hasnt soaked in until dry, then you dont get any residue repeat a couple of times with neat oil and always rag it off..cheers paul
cheers benny
