I'm looking at it now, and I don't see one that's exactly the same. I'll post them all in a minute. He has 7 linseed oil formulas

Images of the boook posted below.

Edit:
I first posted that Diggory's was closest to Howe Formula #5. But I misread the volumes of ingredients. A closer inspection would suggest that Dig's oil is not derived from one of the Howe forumlae.

Jim,

Thanks and very impressive. Another set of formulas to add to the digest. And yes, they are not a ditto of Diggory’s. I always assumed we coated/soaked with alkanet before finishing but adding it to the final finish sounds interesting.

Thanks John. When I saw how specific Howe is in the formulas and applications, I had the same thought. I'll add them to the digest once I've gotten the info into outline format.

I have made some more substantial additions and edits to the 'digest' and will continue to do so as I gain info. It is now up to 16 pages, and includes forumlas and processes from Damascus, Salopian, Dig, and Ken 61.

If there are other traditional methods hidden in the forum posts, I would be thankful for someone pointing me in the right direction.


Here is the link again, to make it easier to find since we are up to a second page of posts:

Jim,

Again, nicely done. All this information in one place. I am going to order more alkanet and try as per Howe boiling in turpentine and strain.

Thanks,
John

Thanks for a nice resource that you have complied all in one place Jim. I might have to circle back and give slacum a go once again.

If you do give it another try, let us know how it goes. Glad to see your greener re-stock project on the pro page. Looking forward to seeing it come together.

As for the slacum digest, it's up to 40 pages now and includes lots of different formulas.

From DGJ- Damascus, Salopian, Dig, Ken61, and Balistix999.
From non-DGJ sources- J Howe, D Newell, D Mills, D Westbrook, B Farman, N Kypridemos. Eventually, I'll get around to sorting out the info in Dunlap and Walter Howe's books.

Jim,
Well done in compiling all this information.
When I was heavily involved in stock finishing I found that Naptholene was a wonderful constituent.Much knowledge and information can be gained from the Paint Industry (PPG) after all they provide gloss finishes and air drying products.Although it is a product of our times I dislike poly.

Thanks!
I've got two questions for you:
1. For the naphthalene, did you just dissolve mothballs in your finish?
2. Your Manton recipe included rose pink. I've seen it listed in many old recipes for varnishes / paints, and I've learned that pink is a generic name for a kind of pigment, rose being the color that we associate with 'pink'. nonetheless, I found it extremely difficult to locate online.

A couple of interesting links regarding pinks and rose:
Rose Madder Pigment
Rottenstone Pink
