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.

Some other pieces of news from around the place:

Organoil is reported to have gone into receivership.  Given that the now discontinued Triton Oil was Organoil Hard Burnishing Oil, it seems that sometime in the near future, even this won’t be available.

Triton have reformulated the honing compound that comes with their wetstone sharpener.  No longer is it a baggie inside a (rusting) metal container, or the second iteration was the same inside a plastic one.  It is now a much better, thicker paste which makes it easy to apply to the wheel, and doesn’t end up spilling over everything!

Triton’s MOF001 (the 1400W router) has won all three awards in the 2009 Taunton’s Tool Guide results, taking out Editors’ Best Overall Choice, Editors’ Best Value Choice and Readers’ Choice.
