I have never used a sealer
You should try it Baz...I rarely use oil alone when doing a total refinish these days.

If the stock already has a finish present, then the use of a sealer is not so critical as when you are working with bare wood. (no mis-quotes please!)

I have never used a sealer, just hard work rubbing the oil in.

This one worked out OK.

I bought some English Walnut Oil Preparation recently. Walnut oil in its raw state will not dry and remains in a tacky state in the wood. I quote:- Endgish Walnut Oil Preparation is based on natural English walnut oil which has been processed and chemically blended with special dryers and sealants to produce a polishing oil which is absorbed by the wood seals and dries to the best finish a gun can have. Having used it I can say that it is a very good product.

Cheers , Phil

I find if you seal the wood with a grain sealer before first applying the oil, you will achieve a higher level of gloss.

Some people don't like glossy stocks though, so it all depends on what type of finish you require.
