Hi,

I am after the UK equivalent of the SC Johnson® Paste Wax (the ingredients can be found here: http://www.whatsinsidescjohnson.com/us/ ... -paste-wax). I was hoping someone had a good alternative?

I will be using it to clean tools such as my table saw, lather bed etc.

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Stophen.

Liberon Lubo works well on cast iron machine beds as a lubricant and rust "deterrent"

Looks pretty similar. Felder also sell something called SilberGleit for the same purposes

For light rust on tools etc I've used wet and dry paper lubricated with metal polish such as brasso prior to any anti rust treatments .

Hi,

Thanks for all your help. I think I will try the Axminster product as I have used some of their products in the past with good results.

Cheers, Stophen.

Hi,

Thanks for the advice. What grade of sand paper would you suggest (it’s just surface rust, nothing deep and no putting).

Cheers,

Stophen.

Depends on the tool to a degree and what sort of finish you are hoping for. On more shiney , smooth tools I used something like a 6-800 grit but on things like plane bodies that are milled a coarser grade can be used but it's probably better to try a finer paper first as it's difficult to get out deep scratches .One tip if you need to clean things like chisels and planes is to glue the sand paper to a board and move the tool over it as one would do with a sharpening stone. Helps prevent rounding of the cutting edge which is easy to do if attempting it freehand.

Hi,

Thanks for this. I’m mainly cleaning up things like my pillar drill post, table saw bed, old metal vices etc. I’ll try the 600 - 800 grit option and see how it goes.

Thanks again,

Stophen.
