Product Description
Shell Ondina Oil 15 - 1.25 litre

Medicinal White Oil (Woodturners Sanding oil)
Oil only: Bowl to show the finish achieved after sanding

Shell Ondina Oils are:
Highly refined, non-stabilised, aromatic-free paraffinic ornaphthenic white mineral oils complying with the stringent harmacopoeia purity requirements. Ondina oils can be used in pharmaceutical, food packaging,bakery cosmetic and other applications, this where a high purity is required by legislation or important for the quality of the finished product.

Water-White, odourless and tasteless paraffin oil food safe, non staining. A problem that most wood turners are faced with is dust when sanding.

It’s the stuff you cannot see that will kill you. Using medicinal paraffin oil takes away this risk.
Also you don’t end up with heat checks in the end grain due to overheating in the sanding process.
Extends the life of sandpapers and mandrels as wood like gummy Kauri that bakes into the paper is turned to a slurry easily removed with a wire brush. I find it is quicker to sand as well.
We recommend using Astra dot Velcro sand papers with this product
Totally food safe, after sanding the oil only needs to be finished with Bee Kind wax.Or you can choose to leave the oil finish

Sand to 120 grit
Then with the aid of a squirter bottle - apply Ondina Oil

This quickly forms slurry when sanding, easily removed from the paper with a small wire brush.

Wipe out the slurry with a kitchen wipe re-spray and sand with the next grit.

I find these speeds up the sanding process, works especially well on those gummy timbers that normally bake the resin into the paper giving it a short life.

Also because you are sanding with oil the heat is kept to a minimum lessoning the chances of heat checks and overheating the Velcro on the mandrel.

That fine dust that is hazardous to our health is kept at bay...

Use on salad bowls,chopping boards and craft items, I then apply Bee Kind Wax
