Should I get the 65ml or the 200ml bottle. Go!

The 65 per ml is a lot more expensive, but from what I hear this stuff lasts forever. Is 65 enough? Ill be using it on stoppers, pens, and cast iron machines.

Johnson’s and Butcher’s paste waxes are just as good, and much less expensive.

I use JPW too, but between 65 and 200ml, I’d go for 200.
You usually pay less in the long run buying in bulk/bigger sizes.

Ive used JWP (Johnsons) before, and I wasn’t too fond of it. I didn’t like the solvents in it, and didn’t really do anything to my product.

I used it on raw wood at the time.

Is it better over a finish?

I only use it on my CI surfaces and on jigs that need to slide.

I’m of the camp that says wax is not a good finish for wood at all.

I agree nite. I will be using it on top of either lacquer or varnish/oil as a top shine coat to give my stoppers that extra shine. Also will be using it as the only product on very oily woods like cocobolo and bocote
