I bought this a year or more ago and it sat on the shelf.
This past weekend I had to drill several 2” + holes with forstner bits which usually means lots of shallow cuts and smoke and heat. I just happened to notice this can on the shelf, which I had pretty much forgotten about.
This lube led to no smoke and I could take deeper “cuts” – e.g. 3/4” ply in maybe 4 plunges instead of 6-8 without.
I also had a lot of pocket holes to drill this weekend and I sprayed this every so often on the bit – whenever I did the holes definitely drilled faster.
It did leave a white film on the wood which sanded off easily. My pieces will be painted so I didn’t care much, but if I was staining, I would test a scrap piece to see if the lube interferes at all with the finish.
