Never used easy wax sounds like a car polish just not sure. Shell wax is a stand-alone friction polish so not really needed on a CA finish.

Some pen turners claim to use Novus Plastic Polish after last coat of CA. Would think works better on acrylic pen blanks.

I have never used anything on a CA finish other than wet polish with micromesh. I use a drop of dishwashing soap in my water.

I use eee as part of a 4-step process when finishing pens. Eee is a wax, it doesn’t seal wood. If you want a high degree of protection use sanding sealer or a light coat of shellac followed by wax. If you want glass use a high friction finish as well.
