    depends on what your doing.....i use oil on the pivot point of my knives and a light coating of it now and then to the stainless steel knives......high carbon blades, wax works better especially if they are gonna be stored for months and ignored....

    BTW if yah wanna save money, motor oil works just as good as "gun oil"......ill often use the 10W-30 or 40 i use in my Jeep for guns or knives cause its handy and rare that i dont have some around know alot of guys in Alaska and the PNW who hunt in the rain alot just use regular motor oil cause its cheap and works just as good.....

    Thanks for the input guys. I'll get some car wax as that's what the manual suggests. It also says to get some dry silicone lubricant for a large set screw that appears to lock down the motors alignment, says not to use grease or oil on that part. What is "dry lubricant"?

    Since we're on the subject of polishing knives/guns is there any way to restore my renaissance weapons? All were hand forged by faire smithies - they aren't corroded yet but looking pretty rough.

    I guess the part is the height regulating bolt and I imagined the "dry silicone" bit, it's just "dry lubricant". I've never lubed my drill press so I guess I'm due for some anyway!

    BTW here is teh wax i use for my high carbon steel knives like those made out of circular saw blades

    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...m_campaign=649

    kinda expensive but a lil goes a long ways.....know a knife maker that bought a jar 4 years ago and uses it on everything and isnt quite out yet......one jar might last someone like you or me a lifetime.....

    It can actually damage some class 2 friction bearing materials...(like those probably used by your saw) There are much better lubricants, solvents and corrosion inhibitors out there.

    save the WD for drying out wet distributor caps and plug wires
