What are situations where you find that one wax works better than another for shop use?
-Some use beeswax on handplane soles…does this work well for both wooden and metal planes? ...Is parafin wax or finishing wax necessarily better or worse?
-My Veritas dovetail saw came with instuctions to use parafin wax for lubrication, but warned against using beeswax, as it would gum it up.
-Which wax would be best for wooden drawer slides?
-What other uses do you find for wax, and which wax works the best for those uses?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
