I have noticed recently, on my tools that get a lot of friction/heat (saws, and plane bottoms), that one of the oils I was using can get a little gummy under those conditions. Not sure whether it was the Sesame Oil or the Walnut Oil, but it’s something I’ll watch for in the future. On my other tools, like Knives, Chisels, etc, I haven’t gotten any of that gumminess, so it might just come down to how well I wiped the oil off the saw blade and plane bottom.
