Re: waxing board shear blades

Good point Scott. I've been using Johnsons paste wax for years not only 
on my Jacques board shears but also the metal beds of my table saw and 
jointer. The one drawback is that, like your mothers oak floor, the wax 
has to not only be periodically reapplied but also periodically stripped. 
There is also the problem of not buffing the wax out properly after 
application which can later wreck havoc not only with a wood finish, but 
quite possibly also cause the staining of paper (although I have not yet 
run into this problem).
