OILING YOUR SPEAKERS

Recommended Posts

I’ve used orange oil with good results.  It makes a change from the popular lemon oil.

But my lV`s now have a rough bumpy feel to them .

IV's are not oiled. They don't do any oil finishes in Hope any longer. 

 

What every you do, you have to make sure that it doesn't remove the special lacquer underneath.

What kind of oil do all of you use?.

If it is an oiled finish, I use WATCO Rejuvenating Oil  based on the recommendation of @HDBRbuilder who worked in the factory with oil was in it's hey day.

I use lemon oil on the oil finish speakers I have. Then once every 20 years(?) I'll break down and apply Watco in natural. Wipe off excess before it can gel and splotch. On lacquer i use Tung oil and wipe off the excess almost immediately. If you let that sit you'll have a mess on your hands.

I use very light application of Johnson's paste wax on my laquered speakers...and buff it to a high gloss by hand. works great!    If old oiled finish, then wipe them down with wood soap first, to clean any surface grunge from them, wait until next day and  then use whatever the original oil finish was...if not sure...use Watco's rejuvenating oil.
