  • New table saw question

    I am assembling my new Ridgid table saw and the instructions say to remove the greese that was applied to the table top with a degreeser and apply a "wax paste". Is this asking for a wax like you would apply to your car like a turtle wax or is there something specific that I need to use for this? THanks

    Any good quality paste wax that does not contain silicone. Butchers seems to be popular.

      DON'T use automotive waxes, they contain additives that will rub off into your wood and affect your finishes.
      Light is faster than sound. That's why some people seem really bright until you hear them speak.

        This works really well. Get a can of it, either at Wally World, Lowes, some grocery stores, depending where you are. I got mine at Lowes. Put it on as soon as you can, after putting on some sort of rust inhibitor (if you already wiped off your grease).
