Hi Bill
I know that people get use to using what finish they have used and works for them even products like Blo has it’s staunch supporters where I think it’s horrible finish . As you said there is no one product that fits all finishing needs
As far as commercial products having cheaper oils all commercial products are not alike. I agree that usually products like wipe on polys are thinned down to a great degree with a high percentage of thinners. As far as finish going bad due to its exposure to air,light,cold ,I feel most product suffer those problems over time. All said and done just like the cars we buy and the cloths we wear we will all use and purchase what finish we think works best for use .
