hang on! you`re applying the wax with "grey 'webrax'"????

is the webrax not an abrasive?

.... so you`re applying wax with an abrasive?... I`m completely lost!

"If you're not using oak, 0000 grade steel wool does a good job as well. "

if I read this right, your saying that you can apply wax with steel wool?

**confused**

Hi,

Yes 0000 steel wool does a great job at applying wax, it really helps it to soak into the wood.

Webrax is a very fine abrasive and it does sound a bit weird but I've got it from a very good source (Jester) that its good for applying wax too :)

I wish I could remember where or how I first learnt about using Webrax instead of steel wool. It's a blooming good tip, and I now use nothing but (the brown one is good for rust removal, for instance :wink: ). Ah well, if it comes to me I'll post so that the right person gets the credit. BTW, the 3M synthetic steel wool and Scotchbrite pads would both do the job just as well I believe. Mind you, I've never tried 'em, so don't blame me if they don't! :lol:

Cheers, Jester
