Just curious... How long have you had a finished pen/other turning with this finish applied?I'm new to penturning (and the IAP), but I've used aussie oil for general purposes plenty (it's been out a while here in Australia). One of my favourite finishes for turning, or for small pieces which aren't round.
It needs a bit of elbow grease if you're using it off the lathe (not a worry for pens), but that's the only negative I can think of. I'm sure it won't be as durable as a CA finish for pens, but I haven't noticed durability issues with it in general.
It's very, very fast to apply on the lathe, and a little goes a long way - will be especially true for pens.
I think (don't quote me!) it would be about 14 months, but that was on a small box which doesn't get handled anywhere near as much as a pen. It lasts pretty well for a general finish in my opinion, I'm just not sure if that'll translate to getting finger oils on it all the time!Just curious... How long have you had a finished pen/other turning with this finish applied?
G'day RodLooking for feedback on Aussie Oil friction polish? I see it listed in the new Penn State catalog?
This appears to be true, must be something to do with import regulations of some countries.
They distribute many of their other products to the US, however GLOW is one that they don't. I am not sure if it is due to a particular ingredient or what, but it clearly states on their page for GLOW that they don't export GLOW to US and Canada.Their website shows eleven distributors here in the U.S.Why do you say it's not shipped to this country?
There is 3 products in the Shellawax line. Shellawax (Liquid), Shellawax Cream, and Shellawax GLOW.Looks like two different products. Shella wax is available in the US but not Shella Wax Glow.
