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???

Depends on how much you like the smell of piss.

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.
