This is the Festool solution to applying oil in a very controllable way, allowing you to achieve a very clean and even finish. This system uses an oil bottle (that doubles as a handgrip) which simply clicks to a base plate fitted with a safety valve, closing the oil bottle and protecting it from drying out when stored. To apply squeeze the bottle, you control the flow of oil, then distribute evenly using the foam pad, this absorbs any access oil and reapplies it where required. The square pad reaches into corners, it also copes well with edge work, contouring to many profiles. The supplied natural oils are suitable for light and dark woods, covering almost all indoor and outdoor applications, solvent free, sweat and saliva proof (DIN 53 160).
This set contains 3 x 300ml oil in bottles, 1 each; outdoor oil, heavy duty oil and one-step oil, storage tin (for between applications), 5 x StickFix oil sponges (125 x 125mm), 5 x green and 5 x white sanding cloth, 20 x 150mm sanding discs (10 x Rubin 180g and 10 x Brilliant2 240g), supplied in a SYS3 T-LOC systainer case.

Interesting way to oil finishI'm still getting to grips with using this system, the instructions are rather sparse to say the least and the Axminster video is pointless, all 28 seconds of it!
