Tung Oil Data Sheets

If choosing a finish, and you see “Tung Oil” somewhere in the description, as in a Tung Oil finish, or Tung Oil type finish etc, just check the product contents.  Some have 0% actual Tung Oil (surprise, surprise), whereas others can be up around 98% – 100% pure Tung Oil.

Organoil sent me the following data sheets , so decided to post them here.  Includes a flow-chart for Tung Oil production.

Keep on Turnin’

Once again in the shed late at night, feeling productive and not wanting to make an excess of noise, so another couple of pens got churned out.

Top one is a Sierra with a brown acrylic blank, lower one an Elegant Beauty with a new purple acrylic I found in Carbatec.

Don’t forget, this Saturday is the last of the month, so it is Demo day at Carbatec, Melbourne, and I will be demonstrating how easy pen turning is, even if you are a beginner.  I am certainly not an expert turner, so don’t expect some amazing technique with a skew or something – it will be basic, yet comprehensive, and if you have never made one before you may go away from the demo wanting to give it a try for yourself.

Warning: Pen Turning is an Addictive Hobby
