Hey guys,
So I’m not sure what’s going on, it’s a true oil finish that’s been knocked down flat, but for some reason I’m getting what looks like scratches when you touch it but you can rub them out just by wiping. It’s not in one area it the whole stock. What is going on? Is there anyway to correct this?

Some years ago I had a stock that just seemed not to dry properly. At the suggestion of a gunsmith friend I wiped the stock down with Japan Drier. That quickly took care of the problem.

This can be a number of things but more than likely it is either oil in the woods surface before you applied your True Oil this does prevent the finishing oil from truly curing, or you have not left the first coat to dry and properly cure. As you are only at the beginning of re finishing I would be tempted to remove the finish that is on the stock with a solvent. Then let the solvent evaporate leave the stock over night then re apply the true Oil letting the first coat fully cure before applying any further coats. You could keep going and apply more and hope the dryers in the proceeding coats will improve matters though you can never be sure.

Actually, almost all of what we call Japan Dryer is made with cobalt compounds. Most chemical driers are composed of some heavy metal salt or compound, with a thinner like naphtha. Some of these heavy metal compounds are toxic too.

The Japan Dryer you buy is about 97% thinner. In spite of being that diluted, it is still very potent stuff, and a little goes a long way. As I said earlier, using too much is not a good thing. Here's a table that shows the characteristics of various chemical driers:

IIRC the recipe was one shot glass of J/Drier to a gal of paint
I hated painting a house...

I scraped, prepped, and painted my Grandmother's two story house twice before we replaced the windows and installed vinyl siding. Also prepped and painted windows, porches, and the gable ends of my Dad's two story brick house. Then, like a fool, I used clear cedar siding on parts of my house, which needs periodic staining. House painting is indeed no fun! Kutter's remark reminds me of this joke:

A businessman was sitting alone at the bar of a fancy casino in Las Vegas. A gorgeous one-thousand dollar a night hooker came over, sat next to him, and whispered into his ear.

She said, "Tonight is your lucky night. Tonight, and tonight only, I will do absolutely anything you want for only $100.00. I will do anything in your wildest dreams and fantasies. But there are two conditions. You must pay me the $100.00 up front. And you must tell me what you want in three words or less."

The guy jumped off his barstool with great excitement. He nearly broke his own arm grabbing his wallet. He pulled out two $50.00 bills and pressed them into her hand. Then he breathlessly made his three word request saying... "Paint my house!!!"
