    Waxing My Sled with ???

    I watched a couple of videos on building cross cut sleds for a TS. One (possibly more than one) of them mentioned waxing (the RUNNER at*) bottom of the Sled. I went to Lowes and found a can of MixWax - $9.95 Seems a bit high to me, Looked to be a pint can. Thought to ask if there was a less...

    Johnsons Paste wax

    I was using Johnson's Paste Wax to lube my drawer slide on my new shop cabinets. I was just going to paint them, but I got some on the face. Well it looked pretty good so I done the entire cabinet. I hope I haven't messed up. I usually only use that on my table saw. Any advice. Thanks

    What wax for hand planes?

    I'm not talking about the "prevent rust" wax job, I'm talking about the "it's getting harder to push so it needs some wax on the sole" wax.:icon_thum I've seen paraffin mentioned and also seen some kind of sticky paste wax used. What do all you hand tool aficionados use?:dontknow:

    best wax to use

    A workmate of mine tinkers with old tube radios. Yesterday he asked what the best wax to use on the cabinets. At that point, I realized I don't know jack about waxes.

    What Wax After Danish Oil?

    I like the finish left by Danish Oil but on some pieces I'd like to add just a tad of 'bling'. What wax is good? The current project is Ambrosia Maple so I fear a wax that may get trapped in the grain. Thanks.

    Paraffin Wax & Mineral Spirits

    I remember reading about Bruce's (junquecol) paraffin wax and mineral spirits to protect shop equipment. Could you mix it a little thicker and use it as a wood sealer? Wouldn't that be about the same idea as anchorseal? Ok, so I have a problem. I've come to the woodworkers anonymous on NC. He's...

    Stripping paste wax from furniture

    I am repairing a piece of furniture that is paste wax over tung oil (I know because I built it originally). What can I use to strip off the paste wax ? I've tried common chemicals on hand like lacquer thinner, but still get massive gumming of the sandpaper. Do I need to resort to say MEK or...

    Streaky wax finish ?!?!

    :-( First try for a wax finish and I must be doing something wrong. I first tried some Briwax, cleaned that off and tried some Myland's. Applied with 0000 steel wool. Tried buffing by hand and then with a pad chucked in a drill. Everything I've tried has come out streaky-blotchy-generally ugly...

    I am finishing up those 4 heart boxes that I made last weekend. I have applied many coats of satin spray lacquer, rubbing out between every 2 with 800 grit paper. I have always enjoyed the feel of a wax finish, and am considering it for the final step. But I am worried that the wax with affect...
