Way back in this thread I think it was Brian Dudley who questioned sunflower oil as an ingredient in Timberluxe. Not that there was something wrong with it but that it was simply not an ingredient used by Parker Brothers or other gunmakers of the period.
I was simply defending its use.
We know that oils derived from petroleum are harmful to wood, eventually causing the wood fibers to break down and rot. We also know that oils derived from animal fat become rancid and the resulting acids are also harmful to wood fibers. This leaves vegetable oils which, while some are more protective to the wood than others, do no harm to wood.
We can conclude that sunflower oil is a vegetable oil and will provide some protection to wood.

I can remember reading in one of my father-in-laws wood working magazines about combining sunflower oil with soy results in a very hard protective finish for wood.

I do not know if the ingredients in timberlux result in the same, but I have had good results from it.
