Default Saw Cast Iron Bed Maintenance Products In UK

Hi,
I've Googled about maintaining my new cast iron table saws bed.
I see several references to Johnsons paste wax, only seems available in the States. Am I OK to use furniture paste wax that I can get in the UK? Any help appreciated,
Thanks.

yup...
as long as it doesn't contain silicone....
got a brand you have there in mind???...

Johnsons paste wax is furniture paste wax...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Had a quick look on Ebay UK , LIBERON Black Bison Paste Wax Polish - for wood furniture is commonly available and listing says silicon free Item number 141078653776.

Just remembered, some time ago one of the joiners at my carving club recommended me to get some black Bison as part of the restoration of a small bit of my mums furniture.Yes I've got an unopened 500ml tin of neutral Black Bison. Assume I can use on the lathe bed and planer too?

Liberon lubricating wax is excellent at protecting cast iron tables. If the machine is new clean off the protective grease with meths or similar and on with the wax.

Welcome Gerry. Thanks for the info.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
