Have tried motor oil (not impressed). Seems not to mix, for when the mixture was cooled, the pitch was as hard as ever, the oil located itself around the edge of the heating pot (aluminium hot pot). Problem mineral/not mineral combination?


As far as I know, gums turps and pure turps are the same thing. Don't confuse this with mineral turps for cleaning paint brushes etc. You can get it at any decent hardware store and is used for mixing quality timber furniture finishes.
