    Boiled linseed oil

    I agree about BLO being filled with heavy metallic drying agents. Yuck.

    Personally, I use a heat-processed linseed oil that is sold to painters

    Cutting Board Finish

    I've used a number of things on my cutting boards and wooden utensils over the years - straight mineral oil, stand oil, oils mixed with beeswax, etc.

    New Laguna lathe

    You might want to replace the set screws with brass tips ones - available at McMaster - Carr, for one place. I had a similar incident on my old Jet 1642.
