1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I have just stained my webley vulcan stock ..
    I have colron Danish oil to finish off the stock , I have used it before but I'm sure I read
    for even better results you should thin it down with white spirits.

    When I used it the last time I applied a thin coat waited 20 minutes and tried to wipe it off
    but it was sticky and would not shift.
    Do you guys wipe the excess off after each coat or just for the first few.
    does thining down danish oil down with turps lift more of the stain off.

    do you also wet n dry the stock or use 0000 wire wool between every coat or do you build up a few layers first.

    I used gel stain and its a beech stock
    any advice on applying Danish oil correctly would be much appreciated

    Same thing happened to ours,applied it,waited 30 mins then it went tacky.

    key for us was to rub it hard using a clean cloth,it will soon dry then give it a quick rub down with 0000 then re apply later.

    possibly the tackiness is the excess oil curing on the surface. From my woodworking days we always were taught to feed the wood with the oil, keeping it wet until it stops taking oil then clean off the excess. No expert myself but kind of makes sense as danish oil will start to 'cure' after about twenty minutes in the right conditions.

    I made the mistake of treating it as an oil instead of a varnish,the next stock I will do with walnut oil,less hassle ;)

    I used finish a lot of gunstocks with Danish oil. I have now gone over to Tru oil as I find it more durable.
    I think if you get 20 answers to your question you will get 20 different ways. I don't think there is a "proper way" we all do what works for us.
    I used to put on a hand rubbed sloppy coat, give it a few minutes, "depends on temperature" then wipe it all off along the grain with a soft cloth. Dabbing it out of the chequering. This I did twice a day for several days. avoiding the chequering, this gets only one coat. If I wanted a shiny finish I then left it as it was, if I wanted it a bit more matte the last coat was very lightly wiped with 0000 wire wool after wiping with the cloth.
    Worked for me!

    There's no answer other than "Déjà vu" - it's already in French but it catches people into racking their brains as to what the French translation for a French phrase used in English language might be :D

    Anyway - Danish oil. Rub it on with a lint free cloth, works for me when I'm restoring old furniture.

    I've just completed a stock with teak oil. Apply the oil then rub with 600-800 grit wet and dry. This is referred to as burnishing. If its going tacky then you have applied too much in one coat, just leave it to dry preferably for about 24 hours before the next coat. I did about 6 coats then polished it with collinite.
