Hi Angel

Christian was selling ready mixed oil

Smells nice and much less hassle

Are you still selling it christian?

Is it a trad stick your oiling Angel? I keep my faithful Ant Scot yew oiled but have never really oiled trads


Hello Paul,

I have been already using Serious Sticks oil, but I would like to make my own mix for my traditional sticks. That's the reason why I was asking for oil recipes.

I thank all of you for your help.

Could turpentine solvent be used instead of citrus solvent?


I'd want non-toxic, as my lips are going to be in close contact with the stuff. If you can find a source for orange oil, that would do as well.


Hello Jason,

I found that citrus solvent is also toxic, reading the following webpage:

http://www.realmilkpaint.com/msds_citrus.html

so it seems it is not better than turpentine solvent. Perhaps you may find this helpful.

Ángel.

I believe this really only applies when it's wet, but thanks for pointing it out. If you're talking about naturally distilled turpentine, that I really don't see much need for concern and it's probably about equal to citrus solvent in terms of toxicity. It's mineral turpentine that's not particularly pleasant.

Bloody hell whats this the "serious toxicology" forum????? :D :D


Where's your evidence that citrus oil and natural turpantine are equal in toxicity?

Have you been doing LD50 rat testing on didj oils your spair time jason? or is that what the beagle's for?

Hello,

I have been able to locate a recipe for didjeridu oil. I have not test it yet but, anyway, I thought it might be interesting for you all. You can read it the following webpage:

http://concrescence.com/didge/didge_maint.swf

I hope you find it helpful.

Ángel.

Hey there,

I'm bringing up that old subject :D

Did you finally manage to prepare your oil, Angel ?
What products did you use ?

OK for 2:1 > tungoil:citrussolvant
Do any of you use essential oils too to have a good smell and fight against moisture (tea tree for example?).
Or does the mixing with such oils threatens polymerization ?

Where do you find these kind of components ? (tung oil and citrus solvants)
In what kind of shops ? (DIY shops, ecological shops, on internet, directly from local producers, other ?)

What about the exterior of the didj ?
Is it raw ? Or is it better to treat it ? (PVA glue ? Oil ?)

(I'm asking this for my next eucalyptus sand'didj, not for a trad' stick)

Thanks :wink:

Hello "Ahaw",

Yes, I prepare my own oil now using pure tung oil and turpentine (I was unable to find citrus oil, so I had to replace it). I mix them with some eucalyptus oil too. Finally I use tea tree oil for the mouthpiece.
I buy the components in a shop in Madrid where they sell chemical products in general. Tea tree oil is also sold in ecological shops.

Ángel. :albino:
