Rick, if you are worried about the WD-40 residue (I was too the first time I used it on my tablesaw), wipe it down or even dip the tool like a chisel in denatured alcohol. This is also good for the cleaning process but WD-40 works better.

I was sold a can of TopCote when I bought my saw but it doesn’t really keep the monster away. Waxing is much better, cheaper and the can goes a long way, IMHO. I have a can of Minwax and others swear by Renaissance.
