"Re Paraffin Wax BTW--- I neglected to mention, that sometimes paraffin wax crumbles in very small particles,  that may be objectionable for some end uses. The particles can easily be removed by light brushing or wiping them away. "

"Applied some ''SLIPIT" to sticking sliding windows---wood-on-wood and wood-on metal. Used an acid brush, so as to get the lube into those otherwise inaccessible areas. SLIPIT worked so well, that I now have to come up with a…"

"''SLIPIT'' product, offered by Rockler, is favored by many. Slip-It reduces friction on moving wood parts. Use this specially formulated, silicone-free lubricant for wooden windows, doors, drawers and any other wood-on-wood…"

"James,  You make a very good point. I recall a customer saying, "What's the difference?...wax is wax". Perhaps he just hadn't learned."

"Hi Jens, I use Johnson's Paste Wax, on many objects, including my measuring tools. The paste wax leaves a thinner coating vs the paraffin wax. Both products offer advantages, it all depends on the end use product. I use one or the…"

"Hi Ken - forgot about paraffin - works really well but in the state you buy it, square blocks about 1/2" thick, I find it a bit hard to use. I mix it with about an equal amount of mineral oil in a double boiler until it combines. Once cooled it…"
