I use a silica free car wax on the saw tables. I have heard that the regular Johson & Johnson furniture wax works well too.

My outfeed tables are MDF, but I have formica glued to it so it stays slick all the time.

I use Johnsons paste wax, cheap, and works.

Johnson’s Paste wax, Trewax, and I think there’s one called Bri wax. I have Trewax because that’s what I found. It can be tough to find this stuff, it’s with the floor finishes. Most auto wax has silicon, so if you use it follow Wayne’s lead…silica free.

Very, very, very (three of them) light coat of chicken grease every Sunday after dinner. Gotta go light (see first sentence) or you’ll stain your wood.

Boeshield for the metal or cast iron, Briwax for the wood
