Right! Thanks again! More than helpful! I found the tool shop near (Ratana) the Clay joint and that woman (Pak) was super helpful! Bought some stuff she had on hand and she was so busy when I was there she kept apologizing. So I just showed her fotos of what I needed and she gave me her email addy and assured me that everything I showed her, she could get for me (except for maybe the BLOil)! I will check out these other 2 places you mentioned 2moro! Thanks again! Huge Time saver!! Cheers!!
If she hasn't already shown you, she has a trade catalogue of all powertools available here, can get them in within a half day if they're in the country, or a few days if they're not. She doesn't know what they all are but is happy to give you a good price if you point to what you want. Small tools up to thicknessers and work tables.

Can anyone tell me where I can find “boiled linseed oil” (flaxseed oil) and wood working tools in the beautiful Kingdom of Cambodia?? Thanks for any help!
By the way, if you haven't already done so try virgin coconut oil where you'd normally use linseed, especially if you're working with light coloured or contrast-grained timbers. You might be pleasantly surprised.

The side parallel to MST is North. Take it from there.

I was looking forward to you describing it! Given that RM appears to be but isn't a true grid... :)

Not quite sure what you're playing at, but here, try this.

Can't find virgin coconut oil out here. Maybe it's coz all the coconuts are fucked?

No, it's because the growers can get small money for green coconuts and refuse to wait to get good money for brown coconuts. There is a real grower shortage, and producers are having to import mature coconuts.

We buy in wholesale quantities so I can't advise on retail buying, other than to recommend to only buy Coco Khmer oils. The other brands are often rancid. If you buy VCO always open it before you leave the shop and check the smell - should be a fresh nutty smell, and you will know if it's rancid. Obviously buy it before you open it, and don't buy containers that are not sealed.

I bought some in Thai Huot in BKK1. Brand name COCOlicious. Made in Philps. Seems good.
