Johnson's paste wax update

So I just got back from my local retailer and purchased a tub of Johnson's paste wax. Pretty inexpensive, being about $7-9. The idea is to glob it on and let it dry to a murky look, and buff it out. Wow looks great. We shall see in a day or two if any rust returns. This out of all the other products is sopposed to last the longest, as well as be durable. Time will tell. It gave the handles a great revival as well. Very pleased so far.


  1. I heard on some other forums that Johnson's paste wax is the best for this. It is used by all of the old-timers for that. Great info, thanks.

  2. I heard that works the best, let us know how it turns out.

  3. Putting that on the sole of the plane helps with friction as well as a rust preventative.
