Silicone ?

Recommended Posts

When I refinish my stocks, I use Tung oil. When the wood won`t absurb anymore oil ( 2 coats) I put one or two more thin coats on & let dry for at least 3 days. It gets a hard glossy finish on it. Then I use steel wool 0000 to cut the gloss down & then rub it down with polish. When ever I handle my rifles or at the range, I wipe them down with one of those silicone impregnated cloths. I have to do a small repair on one of my stocks. What can I use to get the silicone off without marring the finish? Thanks in advance.

Thoroughly rub the area of the repair with 0000 steel wool until you have broken the glaze and it is dull appearing. Do your repair and then re-tung it. I've done so many times, but I use Tru-Oil.

I made the repair & used the tung oil on it. It blended in perfectly & it came out as before. Can`t tell the differanc.
