How To: Use Boiled Linseed Oil article

Boiled Linseed Oil & Metal

A lesser known use for BLO is to protect metal from oxidation. You can apply a thin coat to non-moving parts and once dry it will protect and beautify the surface. Thick coats can get gummy which is another reason you don’t want to use this in moving parts which get stuck together.

I use it mainly for chisels, screwdrivers, heirloom tools, block planes, and more specifically cast iron tops of my “Big-Boy” tools in the shop like the table saw, mortiser, and band saw.

Sand off the rust and polish the metal with some 0000 steel wool then wipe on a thin coat of BLO and you’re good to go.

Sealing Concrete

crazy idea- linseed oil for concrete sealer?? forum

09-27-2005, 8:33 PM #7 - Larry Copas - Linseed oil has been used for years to seal concrete. Mix it 50/50 with kerosene or mineral spirits and slosh it on with sprayer or roller. It’s not the best or longest lasting…expect to re-apply it to concrete outside every year or two. Will darken the concrete at first but lightens after a while.
