Oil (or petroleum) base products do "Pill" over time.
You can go to a paint store and get a cheap Cone Strainer to remove blobs and the 'pills'.
Lame - but can be used as touch up for old paint.

I would NOT use this stuff you show in your pics on anything valuable. It's obviously 'gone'.

I think it's fine how are you applying brush or rag? try straining it with cheese cloth .See what happens when it dries on the scrap wood try a second coat on the scrap

I wouldn't use that.

Those solids probably include what ever hardeners are in the oil.

Thereby taking hardeners away from the remaining oil.

Thereby making the remaining oil more difficult to harden/dry/cure properly.

It could look like that if it was shaken

That stuff isn't expensive.

No wood project worth working on is worth taking the chance.

The last thing a person wants is a finish that won't fully cure. And by fully, I mean fully. Not just a surface cure.

Toss it and buy a fresh can.

I have some that's at least ten years old. It's probably been two years since I've looked at it, but I don't recall seeing it do anything like that.

What happens if you thin some of it 50-50 with mineral spirits, then shake it really well to mix it?

I doubt it would seriously mess up a Garand. Try rubbing some into some scrap wood. Try removing the stock and rubbing it into your barrel channel. Try rubbing it on the stock. See if it clouds.


Maybe try straining a few ounces, and compare the strained with the unstrained on a scrap of wood.

Or maybe just toss it and get some more.


Looking over these links https://www.google.com/search?q=Does...hrome&ie=UTF-8 people talk about the oil trying to cure in the bottle, bevause it reacts to air in the bottle. I saw a mention of people putting marbles in the bottle to reduce the air space.
