I don’t have an extra wax ring.
I do need to replace the one currently in use though.
Would it be appropriate to repurpose the old one and use that for screw lubrication???

I keep one of these in an old chocolate tin in the shop. Screwing always works better with lube. :)

Actually l have been using them for years. First l just kept it on the workbench for screws. Then all got a band-saw, lstuffed the wax into a cardboard tube and used it to lube the blade! Also use to keep sanding belts clean.
