Here at Jason Brown Wood Floors, we do far more than just hardwood floor installation. Our showroom stocks a wide variety of tools and other products for craftspeople of various trades. We are especially proud of our vast collection of products manufactured by Festool—a company with a reputation for uncompromising excellence in their power tools and other products. Today, we’d like to spotlight one of their products: the OS-SYS3-Set Surfix Oil Applicator.
Why Oil Finishing?
In case you aren’t in the market for an oil applicator at the moment, we’d like to take this opportunity to explain why you should be. Here are some of the most significant benefits of oil finishing.
One of the easiest ways to explain the perks of oil for finishing is by comparing it to varnish. Both are commonly used for finishing furniture and other hardwood items. But each of them comes with its own perks and disadvantages.
Overall, keep in mind that varnish offers the strongest wood finish. Oil finishing might not be as durable, but it is a more natural way of finishing hardwood. It has been around for millennia, and is completely natural. This makes it the best choice from an environmental and food-safety perspective.
If you’re looking for a natural way to set off a beautifully textured grain in your hardwood, look no further than oil finishing.
Festool’s OS-SYS3-Set Surfix Oil Applicator
If oil finishing is something you regularly do, then Festool’s OS-SYS3-Set Surfix oil applicator would be a welcome addition to your tool kit. It will simplify the process of applying oil, and you’ll have far less cleaning up to do afterward.
As you might have guessed, this product is a set. Here is some of what it includes:
- 3 linseed-based oils (heavy-duty, one-step, and outdoor)
- 2 sanding pads
- An applicator pad
- Systainer T-Loc product organizer
The star of the show here is the Surfix oil dispenser. When you squeeze the handle, the oil jets out into the sponge. This makes it extremely easy to fine-tune how much oil you apply, and without having to make a mess in the process. Using the Surfix will also reduce expenses associated with additional brushes or rags.
If you’ve ever attempted oil finishing before, you might remember just how messy and sticky it can be. Festool’s Surfix eliminates the mess, and makes it easy to achieve the perfect finish you’ve always wanted. The OS-SYS3-Set has all you could need for remarkable oil finishing. Come to our showroom and check it out!
