    Australian Timber Oil - substitute for Boiled lindseed Oil?

    There's a Craigslist post where someone is selling some deck and siding stain, and one of them is Australian Timber Oil. ATO is listed as containing "long-oil alkyds, tung oil and natural linseed oil". It's a really good deal and I was wondering if this stuff might be good as a substitute for plain boiled linseed oil, even though it dries slower.

    Give it a go. I came across one mob in the USA that sells sample pots so it is a low cost way to try it. It should be a bit more durable than straight boiled linseed oil. Beats me why they call it Australian though. Cheers
