Quite like yourself I have made my living with my hands (10 yrs aircraft mech 30 yrs steamfitter / welder) while maintaining an interest in clothing styles . I look forward to to posts on your project perhaps encourage me to do one on some bicycles ive built . Something is bothering me tho. while I feei I have a pretty through knowledge of such thing I cant quite figure out what your avatar is . I think a hydraulic actuator or motor cycle part of some sort interesting
englade321, we're rare breed on this forum.
You are exactly right. My avatar is a shot of a hydrauic cylinder/ linear actuator; I'm a hydraulics technician.
Awesome, thanks. That is helpful. Neatsfoot oil is by Saphir, right?
Neatsfoot oil is just an oil in the same way olive oil is an oil. It's sold by many different makers.
I would recommend the Lexol Neatsfoot product however:
which is also what Alden SF uses/recommends.
I've used raw neatsfoot oil before and its sorta nasty stuff but the Lexol product has a much better consistency.
Note, it's only recommended for chromexcel, not really for any and all leathers.
Those look pretty good. I was disappointed that I missed them when they were on Gilt a few weeks ago.
