Topic tags/keywords: resource tip question jointer plane milling joining paraffin wax glue

I’m in the process of hand jointing some really gnarly cherry boards for a chest on chest project, and to make the Stanley #7 move smoother, I’ve used paraffin on the sole. It occurs to me, this is wax, so I’m wondering: Will the paraffin possibly have adverse effects on the Titebond properly doing its job?

Has anyone had any problems with glue joints due to paraffin on the plane ???

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I’ve used a host of things on plane soles with no finishing/gluing problems later in the game.

To test if there is too much on the wood, put a few drops of water on it and see if it quickly soaks in = OK. If it stays as a bead you’ve got a problem.

As a precaution plane a scrap piece of wood right after waxing your plan.
