It's essentially solvent applied paraffin wax. It's handy if you need to get the protection into tight spaces but for easily accessible surfaces like hand plane parts then light machine oil will suffice. T9 is a dry lubricant so also suitable for mechanical motion areas which are likely to attract dust like a table saw trunnion for example; it's very popular with cyclists for this very reason.I have not heard of this T9 before Droogs. It looks interesting, is it a product you use and if so what form do you use it in?
Thanks Droogs I did not know that, looks like I will also be looking for an alternative@Garno you are aware that stuff has silicon in it and if you are using it in the wksp where you paint/finish wood things it will give you big problems as it hangs around in the air for ages and causes all sorts of problems as it settles on your nice bit of wood and screws it all up
+1 for the ACF50 I use it on my old Defender and on my tools, it's great stuff and definitely keeps rust at bay; it also stops rust. I used it on the new bandsaw table followed by machine wax and it's spotless. It is expensive mind you but does go along way.T9 was hard to find over here, but there's a candian equivalent called ACF-50. Just in case it's easier to source.
