The description says it contains linseed oil, so he might want to try
alcohol and degreased steel wool. 

Hope this helps, Gary Katsanis

Subject: [oldtools] Bubble wrap marks on "true oil" finish?

 Gentle galoots,

 I have a finish question from a friend of my sister who is a gun
 repairer/dealer. He has a gun that was wrapped in bubble wrap for a
 number of years and it has left marks in the transparent finish that
 mirror the bubbles, like it melted slightly and resolidified. He
 the finish is "true oil" and was wondering if there is some way of
 reamalginating it the way you can repait shellac which will bond with
 new layer?

 I have a pic I can send, haven't sorted out how to post to the online
 list spot.

 Any suggestions welcomed and appreciated.

 Thank you!
