Keep using the linseed until it stops penetrating the wood , once it gets to that stage you are better off wiping off any excess with a lint free cloth .
TOP TIP if you need the stock done quickly : Put the stock in the airing cupboard to dry - the Mrs will kill you but the stock will be nice . lol
PS : See how the linseed goes before even bothering with the wax , wax can be used as a top up after you have been out shooting and scuffing your stock !
thanks mate your a true gent , i will take heed of what you have spoken and use this wisely oh grand stock making master
