I normally use toolstations Flag branded wax, but they seem to have discontinued it now. Cheap and cheerful, and seemed to be just the job for me.

All the dearer alternatives seem a similar price....
So which one to go for.....not Colron, used that before, not impressed at all.


Fiddes?
Liberon? Bison wax, I seem to recall that smells nice.....
Briwax?

Screwfix, searched the website to no avail, do they still do wax? Used to use the 'no nonsense' branded stuff, can't find a catalogue.

Uses, on various turned items, bits of oak and other hardwoods, the odd bit of softwood, now and then over vintage effect (waterbased) paintwork.

Colour range is unimportant btw, i only want clear.

Think you might have been right Wine-o.

Anyway, bought some Chestnut wax today whilst at Yandles. See how i get on with it.
Dropped in to SF too, but they dont do it anymore.

I always use the Black Bison wax as it spreads more easily than Briwax and smells a lot better when the unit is delivered. HTH.

If you want Flag stuff here is the link http://shop.flagfinishes.co.uk/Classic-Wax_AOTHR.aspx You can check with them for a local supplier close to you Hitch as the postage might make it a bit too pricey.

Cheers, i did look up flag quickly too see if they have a stockist list, but seems not.
Plenty of other options, the Chestnut stuff was cheap enough and on the shelf locally, i'll see how that is.
