I first found out about Trewax from Larry Williams of Clark & Williams Planemakers. I asked him how he got the wonderful slick finish on all the Clark & Williams wooden planes. He said, "Trewax." Trewax has the highest percent of Brazilian Carnauba wax of any commercial paste wax. Carnauba is the world's hardest natural vegetable wax, which is why you get such a tough finish with a bright, long-lasting sheen. It’s been on the market since the 1930’s, and was originally made for floors, where, if you are going to use paste wax, you want one that will leave a finish with a shine that will hold up to lots of abuse. I have always used paste wax as the final touch on all the furniture I make and this stuff is the best wax I have ever used. The actual wax application is pretty easy - just rub a very thin layer on the wood, wait 5 minutes, and then polish with a clean cloth. If you have a pretty good basic finish, a single coat or two is all you need. The second coat really is a good way of evening out the spots you missed, etc. If you have a thinner original finish, you may want to use three coats. In the shop I keep a rag in the can so I can easily wax the bottoms of my metal planes. It makes them slide like nothing else. The 1 pound container will last a long time.
Domestic Ground shipment only (cannot be shipped by air).

I dont get it. I thot the wax would put a drag on the plane, not make it slide easier.
I own this product.
