chain oil

Recommended Posts

Hi, im after some advice regarding chain oil when carving. With my very limited skill and knowledge about carving i am struggling with oil flinging off my bar and all over my work piece. For carving i use a dolmar ps32 and carving bar. As for chain oil i just use veg oil. Ive turned the oiler down but still finding that my work piece is still getting covered in oil.

So what is the best anti fling oil to use.

Sorry for the rambling post.

Thankyou in advance for any info.

Rye chainsaw oil is well tacky. But tbh I stick all my oilers to max when carving. More oil on the tip means less wear to bar and chain which happens pretty fast with carving bars.

Not usually much oil on a carving by the time you've hit it with a sander or whatever I have found.
