  • Description

Designed for Woodturners, this stick wax is specially shaped to allow it to be applied to pretty much any shape of item!

A mixture of beeswax and carnauba wax it is slightly softer than the Carnauba Wax Stick and therefore slightly easier to apply and there are no concerns about it marking softer woods.
Applied over a sanding sealer, simply hold the stick against the revolving work and allow the heat generated to melt the wax onto the wood.
Buff up straight away using Safety Cloth, using the cloth to ensure an even coating.

Microcrystalline wax stick -This is the same wax we use in the tinned version of Microcrystalline Wax but in a solid block form with no solvent. This means there’s no waiting around for it to dry before buffing it.

Like the original version, this wax should be used very sparingly, a little goes a very long way and once applied it might even be necessary to spread it thinner using Safety Cloth (the texture of this makes it ideal for this purpose).

The Microcrystalline Wax Stick is also perfect for use on the Buffing Wheel System, use it on Wheel C to buff up to a brilliant, hard wearing finish.

Carnauba wax stick - This is a solid block of carnauba wax, popular with woodturners. It gives a bright gloss finish and is also very hard wearing, able to withstand a medium amount of handling without showing finger marks.

Apply over a sanding sealer by holding it against your work at it revolves on the lathe. Do not press too much – the wax is very hard and can scratch softer woods – the idea is to generate enough heat for the wax to melt slightly and transfer onto the wood. (This is easier than it sounds!).
Use sparingly, and use the polishing process (using Safety Cloth) to ensure the wax is spread evenly. Buffing will produce a high gloss finish.
