RE:Wooden Thresher
Hi Bill,

I too would advise you NOT to use linseed oil.  The Purdue Ag Alumni have a very old McCormick reaper and used linssed oil on it several years ago and it is totally black today with not one letter, number or decal visible anywhere. The diesel / hydraulic fluid has worked for most everything I have used it on.  I have also used WD-40 by the gallon but it does not last as long. 

Just my opinion!!
