Default What kind of paste wax?

I know that there's no such thing as a stupid question... What kind of paste wax should I be applying to my cast iron planer bed?
Thanks in advance for the answer

Eric

I have Minwax and use a heat gun to melt it into the surface, then buff it up.

Hi Eric,

Johnson's paste wax ...definitly! Everyone has a favorite, that's mine!

An easy way to pack the pores in the CI is to attach a 3M abrasive pad (the plastic kind) to your random orbit sander hook and loop type and just push it in! Makes a lot of black goop (oxidation?) but wipe it off and buff your table 'til it shines.

Mike, how has that been working for you? Better than just rubbing it in? I think I'll give it a try next time I do mine.

It seems to last longer. I haven't had to do it since hurricane Ike paid a visit.
Hair dryers work too.
