Home Fix on MTT Bvd carried flaxseed oil at a ridiculous price, but it's hit and miss as to what they have in stock at any given point. Also other oils and American wood stains, but often only the one or two least popular colours/types.

If you're up for DIY you can buy flaxseed in Russian Market and make your own oil. If you find a commercial source, please post here.

What tools are you after?

Back end of Russian Market for clamps, be prepared to haggle hard and walk away if they offer stupid opening prices.

There's a tool shop a few doors up from Jars of Clay on Street 155 in TTP that has marked prices, and will ask if you want original, good Chinese, or cheap Chinese with power tools. She's honest, at least with me.

Great! Thanks!! I will try those!! I have looked everywhere and find it hard to believe with all the wood products I see here that it is so difficult to find simple wood working tools! Btw, I know about the Home Fix and “Do It best” stores on MTT but was surprised I could not find anything I needed there nor was the help very helpful! Do you know where in Russian Mkt they have the flaxseed? I have had to make my own before and will do now if I have to. Oh, how about a good old wood glue (Elmers/Gorilla/etc.) Thanks again!

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!!

The tools are around, just not in logical places. Ask the lady near Jars for white glue for wood, she will look at you blankly and then get you a bag (yes, bag) of PVAC from out the back for $2. If you find any better wood glue please let me know.

Its hard to give specific directions for anything in RM but if you're facing RM from the tourist entrance on 155 the woman who sells flax seed is in the rear right quadrant, one lane past the main meat and veg area, and a couple of lanes to the right of the middle lane. She has the most and the biggest spice sacks.
