I have a scottish ring netter with a larch deck. The seams are filled with oakum and were payed with putty. The putty has all gone and the oakum is very dry. I was thinking of hardening up the oakum with a caulkung iron, then trying to soak the oakum in the seams with Turpentine and Stockhlom tar then paying the seams with Jeffreys glue. Does this sound like the right way to go? I have read of cotton seams being primed with bees wax, but would this be right for oakum? any suggestions welcome.
