If anyone is die hard on using the BLO I have almost a whole can left that someone can have. I can bring it with me to plugfest.

Don't know where/how to dispose of it.
Didn't really like the idea of it being in the garage last summer, garage windows make it way warmer then normal in there.

Nobody calls me Lebowski. You got the wrong guy. I'm the Dude, man.

This is pretty much the reason why I'm switching to epoxy sealing.

As long as you store BLO soaked rags correctly you have nothing to worry about. Get a old Tupperware container, fill it half way with water then cover the rags in the water. Sore the container out back away from the house. I collect and restore old military rifles in addition to fishing for striper's and blues. I strip the wood and then hand rub BLO into them, After 3-4 coats of BLO I give them a coat of wood wax after. If the stocks are really dry I cut the BLO 50/50 with mineral spirits, It helps the BLO soak into the wood better.

You don't boil the linseed oil, you buy it already boiled and cut it with thinner. It makes an excellent sealer, but is dangerous to use as the rags or materials you use while working can burst into flames by spontanious combustion. There have been many threads on this subject. Do a search and read them before using it.

More on BLO and others..

http://www.striped-bass.com/Stripert...e-bye-blo.html

All this stuff .. Are the benifits worth the hazards ? Many times I think Not .. Hobby guys want to use what the big guys (commercial) guys are using but are ill equipped.. (ventilation,fire protection,respirators,protective suits,gloves .. space suit more or less).. I had one commercial guy tell me he feared the hobby guys would find out what he using . Knowing alot of unprepared would endanger thier lives and thier families .. This stuff is NO JOKE.. reason why Bigfish wanted it sticky . When does a hobby become a hazzard .. I'm sure I cross the line myself ..

Thank you all for this most interesting post! Wow, I knew not to keep oiled rags around but didn't realize they would combust so readily!

I've been using Val oil/MS or Turpentine since I started this maddness. I have settled on val oil/odorless MS (not the "green" odorless MS). I had never heard about a problem with heat generation with val oil until this thread, nor have I experienced it. However I do spread the wipe rags to dry so that may be the reason for not noticing. I don't think that anything will defeat Mother Nature. Boat builders have been trying to "waterproof" wood for centuries...there are lots of "waterlogged" boats sitting on the bottom of ponds and oceans that are testiment to our inability to waterproof wood. Try as we may our coatings will eventually fail for any number of reasons, hook swing is a biach and a yellow eyed devil will surely punch holes in epoxy. But hey it's fun to try.

When I was using BLO and MS I used paper towels to0 wipe them. Then without crumbling them I would place them in a paper bag. When done I placed the paper bag in our trash receptacle leaving it open to breath. When it was time to put the trash to the street for collection I would close the paper bag.
I never experienced a problem.
