I read a few places that I need to sand with fine grit sandpaper and then
use wax to protect the surface. Problem is that all the products I read
about are not available in Canada. SC Johnson's Paste Wax and Butchers Paste
Anyone in Canada can suggest a product I can use to protect the surface of
my table saw?
No, this is my first post. And I know it's not difficult. I wanted
recommendations from people that have MUCH more experience then me.
Thanks for your comment even though you haven't helped.
Check this link for the stuff that works pretty darn good. With what came in
the box, some elbow grease, and a utility knife blade I restored a
basketcase to near new condition.
Thanks Luigi, I went to Canadian Tire and asked the person working in the
hardware section. This is what he told me. "We sell a silicone based product
that protects and make the wood slide easier." He was surprised when I told
him that silicone stains wood.
I will try Lee Valley even though they are in Ottawa. At least I won't have
to deal with rediculous shipping from the US and the damn duties.
Thanks again and thanks to everyone that helped with my question.
But it's ok to use on *finished* wood to make it slide better. Just
don't expect new finish to stick on wood that's got silicone on it.
But the carnauba wax is in the automobile cleaning section, along with
turtle wax and all that.
Replace "nonet" with "yukonomics" for real email address
Canadian Tire usually has this stuff in stock, it claims it's pure
carnauba wax (which is what you should be using on your car too... and
it's time to start thinking about winterizing it, starting with a good
wax job)... I get the stuff in the can, not the bottle. It smells
Before you try that get some automotive buffing compound (Dupont) and a
husky automotive buffer and have at it. You will be surprised at what it
will remove without scuffing table.
Then apply several coats of Johnson's paste floor wax and buff out each
coat. Don't use same pad that was used with compound. RM~
