Can I use a mixture of raw linseed oil and turpentyne on Quarry tiles?

Depends on what your final purpose is.
If it's to preserve them (i.e. waterproof them) you might want to try boiled linseed oil instead. It's more persistent although it takes a bit of time to penetrate fully.

    How do I remove Linseed oil over spray from off my car wind shield ?

    Immediately, keep the car out of the sun. Linseed oil will harden in the sun and heat. Wash the screen using cotton cloth with a drop of white spirit and then methylated spirits.Clean the wiper blades the same way. Dry and polish the screen with a clean dry cloth. The same for the wiper blades. Repeat if necessary. Dont soak anything. These solvents are flammable.

    Loosing wood colour in exterior deck flooring, floor unused for6m


    When I recoat my outside wooden seating I use Danish Oil and if the colour has faded I add a small amount of stain of a suitable colour. You could try it with the linseed oil but the Danish oil dries to a hard coating and will build up if several coats are used, allow time to dry between coats.

    Hi, I want to use my H.P Deskjet 520 (mono-printer) to print standard paper with a spirit-based and colourless solution that contains a percentage of 'linseed oil'. However the linseed oil is clogging the...

    I'm not sure why you need to use a solution w/ linseed oil. But the cartridge is not designed for oil based printing. It's original use is for water based dye inks. So any oil based or oil mixed product will eventually clog the jet sooner or later. Since you are printing w/ this I can only guess you are planning to coat the surface of the paper. There is another chemical that might be available w/ one of your ink manufacturers that is used to refill some Epson cartridges that they use to do a kind of gloss coating on paper. Using a printer to spot coat an area is possible. But most people just roller brush the whole sheet. It's faster than using the inkjet printer.
