    Nice one.
    My permit for the small parts for my No1 MKIII* has arrived, but now the US seller is sold out of some parts.
    I'll wait until after New Years to order.
    Still also waiting on my repro stock set.

    @Gordo what's your source of this information? In my 20 years as an industrial chemist in paints plastics and adhesives acetone was considered as one of the least hazardous common solvents
    The only connection to isocyanates was as a carrier solvent for specific foam making applications.
    The mixture had to be used rapidly as any trace of water reacts with the isocyanate (usually TDI, or HMDI) to produce carbon dioxide and biuret.

    Acetone is voc exempt in paints meaning that it is not included in the hydrocarbon total for emissions
    Interestingly diabetics produce it in their bodies and a telltale diagnostic for someone who is low on insulin is the smell of paint thinners on their breath.
    Sorry for the lecture but I have a passionate dislike of false facts brought on by the current climate.

    @Mauser308 I just sourced them from a bloke in Huntly, so am pretty set.
    It was pretty much the missing pieces from a bubbafied SMLE.
    I just need replacement top wood now.

    How come it's common for it to be used as a nail polish remover? Pretty concerning if it's as bad as you say.

    Boiled is said to dry faster, but I believe raw soaks in better and doesn't rub off as easily, though raw can stay sticky for a long time. Good hard rub with a cloth, and some thinned coats.

    The old adage for oiling a wooden rifle stock...
    Once a day for a week,
    Once a week for a month,
    Once a month for a year,
    Once a year forever.

    Raw linseed is the correct stuff to use for timber. Originally stocks were soaked in a bath of warm linseed and then drip dried. Raw linseed is natural flax seed oil and dries naturally over a long period of time. It is slow drying and for this reason requires lots of very thin coats hand rubbed. The first few need to be thinned 50/50 with mineral turps to encourage impregnating into the timber.
    Sometimes it can take up to 20 coats with hand rubbing to get the right lustre finish. NEVER wooly it as a thick coat as it will go like gum and never dry. A couple of drops on your hand is all that’s required

    Wood needs hydrating and must be fed so you should do all stocks every month or so.

    Boiled linseed is completely different....its not boiled at all but rather is refined and has dryers added so its faster acting however the results are not the same. Some of it has other “stuff” also added.

    Hand rubbing of raw linseed over many days and nights brings out the best results and remember to use only a couple of drops as it goes a long way.

    You can also draw out the black/grease with calcium carbonate (chalk dust) and acetone which you mix into a plaster of praise coating and then apply quickly to the wood. It dries rapidly and draws out the crap. You then brush it off when dry. It’s dries in a couple of minutes and works well
