Re: Dehumidification drying wood questions....

This was in the late 70s and early 80 - of course, some lead paint was still around, but I recall that it was 1978 or so that it went off of the market.

I was curious enough about oil based barn paint to go look, and some do say that they have linseed oil or other oils designed to work well with weathered wood, as well as fungicides.

I always thought it was just cheap. I must admit that I haven't used any common oil based exterior or interior paint since July 1995...coincidentally, painting a barn.

(the current really cheap "barn and fence" stuff is flat latex red and probably really is just junk).
