    24 hours minimum has been my experience. A bit of gum turps or Japan drier or both speeds things up but they are not as user friendly as straight Linseed Oil. I used to buy raw Linseed oil and boil...

    Thanks Lee, That will take me some time. The first one have looked at moves very fast just like when the kids try to show me things. I will be pausing a lot to catch up.

    Continuing to learn how to shape the heel of a guitar or mandolin neck with a rasp is an uplifting experience for me. So is the draw knife and the spokeshave.
