After contacting Karen a Metalwerx and begging her to over look my
ignorance and tell me what this oil is used for she sent me a great
link from the Orchid’s archives regarding this oil (Thank you Karen).
This brings me to ask several questions for you all out there in
What type of lubricating product do you use and why? Do you use
the Bur life stick form and if this is the product you use, you do
you use it on burs and sawing blades?
Do you consider one better than the other and why. Is there one
product that can be used for all purposes? Do you make your own
concoction or purchase it? and if so which oil do you purchase,
where and why.
I looked up lubrication in Oppi’s great book and it said to use
soluble oil, non flammable and non toxic (I can understand that part)
one part oil to 20 parts water. No specific names of oils were
mentioned. As always thank you all ahead for your response.
