What are you trying to clean off? A photo would be helpful.

However if you wish to do that, this is the mineral sprits that RFC's expert noremf (George) recommended.


As far as the Tung Oil goes, just rub it into the finish and let it semi dry.
Repeat if necessary.
Full drying will take a few weeks.

I applied a little touch of wood polish to the scuff to see if that would help. It did not. I assume that the little amount of polish that I used, should be removed before applying the Milk Paint Company Pure Tung Oil. Maybe Iím overthinking it.

It's a good idea to clean the stock. Putting something on top of polishes or waxes won't allow it to adhere to thee surface you want it to stick to. In any case, whenever a piece is handled, whether it's finished or not, it leaves the possibility that oils from the hands or cheek is transferred.

Still waiting to see your scuff marks.

It would be helpful for all of us who'd like to see if it can easily be fixed.
Tung oil can only help with scuffs, not gouges.

Just saying.

I only applied one coat of tung oil to the scuff so far, but it doesnít appear to be successful in covering up the scuff. %%%% it.

There's no easy or fast way to make a blemish disappear. It won't happen with the application of product "X" rather than product "Y". Take a look at this pdf created by noremf, the late RFC expert on wood finishing and wood finishing products. His knowledge was based on a long professional career in the wood finishing and finishes industry. https://rimfirecentral.com/rfcftp/sto...0invisible.pdf

In addition take a look at this RFC sub-forum https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...play.php?f=275

See also the sticky in that forum on Things to Avoid on Wood Finishes, which includes Howard's Feed-n-Wax https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...d.php?t=539268

Anschutz North America recommends Trewax, Antiquax, or Renaissance as far as wax goes. It's on their web-site under Maintenance Tips.
