getting really clean linseed oil..

I used it too ()

...not the point of your post, but when I cooked varnish, I ordered the flaxseed/linseed oil from a food supply place based on a suggested list.

The turpentine came from some health food supplier (that one I couldn't quite figure out, but it does appear that some people will bathe in it and some other folks took it like an elixir).

The US isn't the place to buy good quality turps, though - super expensive. Cost half as much with international shipping to get some from portugal (that has a nice crisp scent).

I think linseed oil might be what makes (old) woodworking planes brown - either that or tallow.
