Hi all,I have been reading the latest edition of Driver. The article by James Walshe mentions rat oil but I don’t know what it is and can’t see any on the tinternet. Anyone know what it is? It’s used to preserve patina,a worthwhile exercise :D

This might be a good read: https://www.rodauthority.com/features/e ... s-neglect/

Otherwise, I have heard of linseed oil being used.

"Rat Oil" is sometimes used in the foodie world for "Ratatouille". ;)
