  • Paste wax?

    I notice alot of you use paste wax on your projects. This may be a dumb question but is the paste wax for cars and paste wax for wood the same product? Thanks.

    We use Johnson paste wax (furniture) as it has no silicone in it which is the problem in car waxes. Silicone will transfer to your wood causing it to stain.

      Mark, you don't want silicone on your wood as it will make it very difficult to apply a finish. You will get a "fisheye" finish. If your project has a finish on it and you want to apply a wax to it most use a wax such as Johnson's paste wax. Wax finishes should be redone done every so often though.

          I also use Johnson's on wood and on the table tops of my tools to keep them slick.

            That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

            I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

            Reply to Question about tilting head saws
            by Bill Wilson
            I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

            Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
