Both, before I made a sled with HDPE runners.

I do both. After a project, its part of the “wax all the tools” routine.

Wherever I can get it… and even some places I can’t.

Everywhere wood or steel needs needs to slide. Cast iron will almost drink wax. My brand is Johnson’s Paste Floor Wax but YMMV.

Glop it on,
Rub it in,
Let it dry,

Repeat as required.

Runners, sled bottoms, miter slots, machine tops, wherever wood slides
