Probably Waxalit "Sliding Agent and Glue Release", available from Lee
in 200 g ( 7 0z) can rahter than in the industrial size 25 & 50 gallon
Orignally developed for the wood mill industry, craftsman have found it
also great for cutting down on glue squeeze out clean up. Michael
mentioned it in one of his demonstrations at a WWing show. Saved him
tons of time on glue clean up on spindle chairs. Has the consistency of
thickened vasoline. A little on a Q-tip, wipe around the outside of
glue, pop off glue and wipe with alcohol to get the Waxalit off.
Also cuts down friction on cast iron tables etc.
Does that sound like what you're looking for? Comes in toothpaste
type tube or small pint can size.
Probably a combination waxes, including carnauba, paraffin, and beeswax, with
one or two other ingredients for kicks. Carnauba is the hardest natural wax
used for woodworking purposes and is very hard to shine when used alone.
Paraffin is not a natural wax, but is, basically, the same as canning wax (used
to seal jellies). We all know beeswax, which is the golden, good smelling one
that feels a wee bit sticky. The percentage of each used in a mix determines
most of the characteristics, while the amount of solvent determines the ease of
wiping on. The type of solvent determines the speed of drying...for a
lubricant, you want a super slow drying solvent, unless it's for something like
gears on a table saw.

Didn't see that, but here are some search results for pure liquid paraffin:
Should do just as good, it stays, and cheaper than camelia oil. Just don't
use it for sharpening, might clog up a stone, not that I know for sure. I
like the idea of "pure" non-smoking, compared to dirty sooty cheap lamp
oil that "has paraffin in it".
What is the TOH hour?
You can also get a sample pack from the manufacturer for $14.00 or $19.00
(plus tax). See:
Note that they have two formulas. The original formula contains silicones.
Buffalo, NY - USA
(Remove "SPAM" from email address to reply)
I looked at the MSDSes on those and neither contains any info.
No list of contents whatsoever, so there are no solvents?

Are you aware of the irony in titling your post "What was it" when the
TOH hour is half comprised of "Ask This Old House" a segment of which
is called "What Is It?"
Just struck me funny.
