I just finished polishing all the finished surfaces of my previously loved Jointer. While I dont have any T9 readily on hand, I do have a can of Slipit silicone free tool lube. Does anyone have any experience with this product? My plan is to spray a coat of Slipit, let it dry over night then polish the tables again with a clean soft cloth followed by a couple of coats of Butchers Wax. Or should I skip the Slipit and just lay down the wax?
Yeahs’ and neighs greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help.

I have never used T9 or slipit on the beds of my equipment. I have always just used Johnson’s paste wax, I have heard good things about Slipit, but never tried it. Would the wax application remove at least a portion of the slipit? Just wondering.

Thanks for the input guys.. one final question, Should I skip the wax and just use the Slipit, or will the combination of the two be even better?

I just use wax after cleaning the surface .I’ve never used Slipit since wax works so well.I would guess just use one or the other.

Since I just cleaned and waxed the Uni last week, I think Ill try a little experiment and use Slipit on the Jointer and try a side by side comparison of the two.

I have used wax for 50 years. I recently bought some slipzit (I think that is the way it is spelled) from Rockler. It is a thin paste. I actually bought it to make some furniture drawers slide better. I like it but cant say it is any better than the wax. It cost more. It might last longer but we are not into longer just yet.

Have your say...
