Pigs lard and beeswax for my wood planes,( works good on all my leather boots too) and normally just mineral oil on my metals. I was always cautious of olive oil because I heard it can go rancid. But with so many people claiming to use with no side effects I might just give it a go. I might just make me an oil carpet like Jim Tolpin talks about his book The New Traditional Woodworker.
