Question Machine wax

Hello. This is my first post. I have just purchased a used Jet Jj 6-CSX jointer and am finishing reconditioning it. I would like suggestions on what product to use for providing protection and lubrication for the machined cast iron tables. Will also use it on my ancient Delta 14" bandsaw. Thanks.

Oops - that is "machine wax". Hope woodworking skills are better than typing.

Tony, Boeshield T-9 works great. It protects and lubricates very well.

I just use plain old Johnson's Paste wax on saw tables and exposed parts.

A vote for both of the above.

I use boeshield on the table saw and drill press, Johnson's paste wax on the scrollsaw bandsaw and jointer tables.

No real reason either way, just habit.

For lubrication of the adjustment mechanisms, pick a dry film lubricant. I use dyna-glide dry lubricant and cleaner, but there are similar CRC,DuPont and LPS formulas as well.

You can spend more money but Johnson's paste wax works just fine.
