I've a rattan recurve bow here which needs to be tuned. However, I'm not sure which oil to use.
Which oil should I use to "burn" (with a hot air gun) a rattan recurve?
For bending curves in the bows I have made, I have always just used a light coat of cooking oil. Mineral oil should work as well, but it would cost more I think.
Required, but never shown
