I’m so glad I found this! It’s been missing since I moved into my house 18 years ago. This stuff is literally, slick. Still cleaning out junk in the basement. This works better than anything I’ve ever used for cast iron table tops. A little goes a long way. Goes on like polish and wipes off pretty easy. It has a glittery look to it in the tin, but not on the tables. I just did my table saw and wow! Anyone else ever heard of or use it?

Looks like a form of graphite paste.

Yeah, I think it is. It really seems to last a long time on the table tops.

Made in West Germany. How long did you have it before it got lost?

Might be able to get it from the other company listed on the cover, Farris Machine Inc. It’s worth checking into guys. This stuff is amazing!

If it has graphite, does that mark the wood?

Not at all. I’m not sure what’s in it, but it really works great. I’ve used the usual paste wax and that works ok, but this is amazing. Hahaha. I sound like an infomercial. I even have the Boeshield T9 stuff. This is better in my opinion.

Here is another supplier,

Its a bit on the pricey side in regards to alternative rust prevention products available but certainly works well and does not effect the timber

Thats great! What store did you find that at? Not that I need any now, as this stuff will last me a lifetime….....if I don’t lose it!

I bet you could just add some dry graphite to your favorite paste wax and make some of your own.

I saw a guy on youtube who was refurbing a C-man contractor’s saw. I think he melted some wax (paraffin maybe?) and added dry graphite to it. He used this to lubricate the internals of the saw.

Here’s that video I was referring to. He’s using candle wax, but I’d probably just use paste wax myself, that way you don’t even have to heat the stuff:

Interesting. I’m glad I found mine though. lol I think the paste wax would be better also. Mine is like shoe polish.
