Someone on another post asked how the eee wax was and I thought I would respond. I have been pleased with it but I have stopped using it on pens. If the was comes in contact with metal and then in contact with light colored woods it will stain the wood a black color. It doesn't look to good(or proffesional) But I still like it. I have been using it on some bowls as of late after sanding to 600grit I then applied it and it gave the bowl(actually an end grain hollow form) a wonderful sheen and added nicely to the color. just my 2cents
I hear what you say about being careful not to get the wax near the bushings as the tripoli compound in it will transfer metal marking to the work piece...but if you're careful it is possible to buff out any tiny imperfections and not get the dreaded smear marks.
I find it an excellent product that saves a lot of work with finer grit abrasive paper such that I rarely go above 320 to achieve mirror like finish. Having said that the surface I buff is CA at this stage so the pores of the wood are sealed and cannot be impregnated with contaminated EEE.
