Junkyard find - Fly press


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

I got some boiled linseed oil form ebay so i am ready to give it a go. I am also a beekeeper and i have lots of bees wax...i could make a wax-raw linseed paste (1:7) and use that but i think i will stick with the boiled linseed oil. 

Another issue  I used Moly-disulfide content grease to grease the screw an the sliding surfaces of my flypress. I read it on an old thread here in the forum. It feels sticky and the overall feeling of the press is slower than before when i was using oil, it even makes sticky sounds.
