This product is used to lubricate any surface in the shop where drag and hang ups across in feed/out feed tables, fences and the like are problematic. Used in place of silicone or other lubricants that would contaminate the woods/materials surface and create a build up of lube and sawdust on equipment and machinery.
I have used a similar more expensive product in a few of the larger production shops that I have worked in over the years and have seen first-hand the benefits of using a dry lubricant. Not only does it significantly reduce the amount of force required to move pieces through the machinery and equipment in the shop, it also greatly increases accuracy and most importantly increases safety by not having to “force” material through and across tables, blades, knives, bits etc.
Another benefit is that all of this is done without effecting the surface of the material when it comes time to finish your project. The solvent in PB Blaster’s Dry Lube evaporates almost immediately and leaves a white almost powdery surface. I have had NO finishing problems in my shop after almost 2 years of using this product. It is readily available anywhere PB Blaster product are sold and in my neck of the woods, Northeastern AZ, retails for $4.49 for a 9.3 oz. can at one of the big Home Improvement stores. The other similar product goes for anywhere just under $10 on one of the Big internet retailer to $15 + in some retail shops for a slightly larger 10.4 oz. can.
Give it a shot and see if you notice the benefits I have described. You may find yourself reaching for a can every time you fire up your tablesaw, planer, jointer, shaper, dovetail jig etc. Thanks for taking the time to read my review.
