All of our smith's use linseed oil for finishing in one way or another (only Molly and George use beeswax). Whatever method they use, the end result is the same and the materials or simple and time tested.

Id like to forge 3' lengths angle iron and flat stock (1/4"thick).When to apply wax and oil? when forging. After forging? Im making doors for a fire place and we want the finish a wood stove has.

Orion Henderson -

You should apply the finish after all the forging is complete.
