I have an old axe handle that has dried out in the nevada sun and i want to save it-what oil or wax or??? can i put on it to keep it from cracking more and/or to lessen brittleness.
no-im not going to use it to cut firewood…. =)
i also have an old camper w/wood frame. the REAL 2×6 resting on the metal frame of the truck has dried out and i need to add some lubrication to it.
not a big deal-its out of the weather BUT… because it has dried out since installation in 1955-yes you read that right- it SQUEAKS liek CRAZY when driving. bolts have been tightened but it comes down to needing som sort of lube to add to wood to soak in.
i was thinking somthing like linseed oil or olive oil… thoughts?
