Wood threading kit question
Just purchased a 3/4" wood threading kit from Woodcraft. Looks like a lot of others on the market. Instructions say to lubricate dowel with linseed oil.
My impatience led me to try to cut threads on an oak dowel using soap and then vegetable oil til I could go get some linseed oil. Soap was a no go and the veg oil sorta worked but the jig would bind up.
My question is "will the linseed oil solve the binding problem?" I've watched their video and it looks so easy to do.
Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated!
