Hay Bob, I thought you wanted to try tung oil on your cast iron. I still gots 4 or 3 tung nuts hanging on my tree dat I kin send you iffen you wants to squeeze them.

C.J.V. - living in what was a tung tree plantation in the 40s & 30s, me

I wer kinda hopin you had already tried it. <g> Giving it a try is still in the back of my mind - pretty far back (like when I have a LOT of spare time ;), but still there. I think it would make for a very hard and durable surface. I might take you up on your offer if (more likely when) the flaxseed oil turns rancid in the bottle that I have. I am somewhat surprised that it stayed fresh for as long as it has.

Thanks for reminding me!! I still have some pieces that I need to finish, the most interesting of which is probably a 1908 #8 Griswold slant logo waffle iron. It looks like this, except that it has wooden handles instead of the coiled steel ones:
