The only material to use to "rub in" LSO or True Oil is not steel wool, its not a soft lint free cloth. The proper tool is the palm of your hand
I thought that was self explanatory for any 'Hand-Rubbed Oil Finish', so I omitted mentioning it...

The steel wool is to prepare for a subsequent coat, and the cloth is to remove any dust or steel before applying the next coat...They are not to 'rub in' the oil...

I am fairly confident that the military contractors did not 'rub in' any finish during wartime...
