Beal and BLO

>All,

Have been lurking for some time checking out all the great work, and wonderful people. When I can get some pictures together I will try to post.

I am starting to try to turn again, and looking for some advice. I recently turned a couple of cherry bowls, sanded to 600, finished with BLO. I decided it was time to bite the bullet and purchase the beal system.

The directions say not to use with linseed oil, but I know others have.....

Does anybody have any input on the right/wrong way to use a beal system, and what finishes are safe and why?

Thanks for all your help.

Jake
