THANK YOU Phillip. No.7 white polishing compound is that minwax or what?

Phillip said:
I have been using the rubbing compound for 7 years now on the table saw, band saw, lathes, and joiner. Never had a problem. My print shop guillotine paper cutter is OLD, and 5000lbs of cast iron, and I have used the red rubbing compound (Turtle Wax brand) on it for more than 25 years. I have yet to find a better complete deep down rust remover. I would agree with you 100% if you are referring to the Turtle Wax liquid wax, that HAS water in it. I do not use the liquid wax. Regarding the other two products, I had to find something that would clean the rust and grime from the cutter bed and keep the paper clean. I found both products at NAPA auto parts for auto body work. At that time there was still metal in the auto bodies (pre "Made by Mattel") so they had to avoid rust and make sure they did not start more.

I have used Minnwax which I suspect is very much like the J&J furniture paste wax. Just had some around, so I used it. I still found I liked the No.7 white polishing compound, but that is pure personal preference.

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
