Okay guys, here's the poop.

Evans Coatings has the right stuff but won't sell less than 25 lbs. The same stuff is sold through McMaster Carr only they sell in smaller quantities. The item number is 7762T44. It's called Hot-Melt Reusable Peel-Away Coating Style A. I bought 5 lbs. for $31.66 and I guess that includes shipping as they didn't add any shipping costs to the invoice. It is also available in other quantities. There are other styles but A or B are likely what you'd want to use.

I don't have it yet. When I get it, and if there is anything else to report, I'll do another posting.

Thanks all,

Rod Betts

Is there anything that you can't get at either McMaster-Carr or Grainger?

I'm not sure. Do they ship to Canada? If not, everything is what we can't get at either.

Hi Rod - 5 lbs should go a long way. I didn't notice it on the Evans website but McM says it is reusable. Just peel it off and toss it back in the pot... Kool.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hey Rod, I know this will sound to easy and cheap, but I keep a toilet bowl wax ring handy for all kinds of things in my shop and it works great for protection as well as lubing up wood screws and other things, just slip it over an old towel rack and keep an old sock handy for rubbing it on stuff, Way simple

Hi

I just don't get it, once you have that junk off why would you want to put it back on.

Now if you live in a jungle I could see putting it back on but other wise, it's very hard to see the true profile of the bits with that junk on..you can always use the hvy.plastic bags that many ship the bits in..I have 50 or so if you need some..

Just to answer a few questions & make a few comments:

1. I received the tool wax (I'll call it wax for want of better short name.) and it turns out that I lied in my last posting. McMaster Carr did add $6.00 to my credit card to cover shipping (total $37.66.)

2. Why would you use it - 1) Corrosion control, 2) Protect from damage if dropped etc., 3) sharp edges that if left exposed can cut & damage & and injure. 4) the wax is oily enough that I'm pretty sure, after a while, it would penetrate into router bit bearings keeping them well lubricated. As you know, oil seems to creep & crawl and get into everything so why not into router bit bearings? The stuff sure leaves a nice oily residue on router bits. I haven't seen a router bit or saw blade yet that won't rust given enough time and I live in a semiarid area.

3. I've used it and it works well. The melting point is 350 degrees (wish it was a bit lower.) I put it in a tin can and melted it with a propane torch but won't do so again, it's pretty messy & cumbersome. Tried an old kitchen slow cooker with water in it and the tin can set in the water. Didn't get hot enough. I may try a small electric frying pan if I can find one on eBay that's small enough, cheap enough, and deep enough. If not, I'll try for a used hot plate and small kitchen pan. You can buy melters but they're expensive.

4. Yes, although I haven't tried it yet, I'm sure the wax would be reusable and I intend to reuse it. There may be a limit to how many times it can be reheated. Time will tell.

5. Toilet wax rings? Sounds handy. It's not designed for rust control but could be helpful as long as there's not something in it that promotes damage or corrosion. I keep a wax furniture polish handy for cast iron surfaces etc. Likely does about the same thing.

6) Now the big question. Is it worth all bother and trouble? For some, the answer would certainly be no. For me --- the jury's still out but I have so much time, bother, and money invested that I'm committed.

So, that makes you an honest evaluator! If it's bad, it's got to be really bad for you to criticize it. Otherwise, you'll provide either unqualified support or qualified support.

The toilet bowl wax ring is pure bee's wax. Won't hurt a thing....
