I am putting new wood on the New Idea spreader. I know they originally painted the wood Orange but I figure with today"s cheap wood and paint maybe I shouldn"t.
Would it be better to coat the wood with a water seal product or brush it with old oil? I have a bunch of old 90 weight gear oil that is just sitting around.

My winter project is to re-wood an old MM spreader. Also mulling over what wood to use. Like the idea of white oak, but a little hard to work with and has tendency to warp if not dried correctly. Pressurized wood makes sense, but I heard that it's southern or yellow pine...doesn't seem like it will hold up long. thoughts? thank you

I think the orignal wood was southern yellow pine and chosen because of lasting ability and treating would make it so much better.

Use wood that's fairly rot resistant - white oak is common around here. Then if you prep it right, prime it thoroughly, a good paint should hold for many years.

If you don't care about it being orange - I'd just use pressure treated and leave it at that.

That is what I plan on using if I ever get to the half a dozen spreaders I have setting here to do when I get done with all the rakes and planters and other machinery that I need to get rebuilt for the Amish.
