NewB here with his 2 cents worth on Granite tops, but 1st hello to everyone. this looks like a good group;
I always used a chemical call Top Coat; it comes in a spray bomb on my Jet cast iron saw. You spray it on let dry for a couple minutes, then buff off with a clean rag. No rust and the wood floated across the saw and best of all it had NO silicone in it.
I just got a new granite top and I think I’m going to use Top Coat on it also. I read the granite already has sealer on it and I’m afraid of wax, because it may have that nasty silicone in it. The guys that speak of paste wax may have a special brand without any silicone in it.
For those that don’t know, silicone is bad around wood working, because it can get in your wood & you never see it until your project is finished and you go to put some stain or a finish on and then it shows up. Learned that the hard way, also I’m not pushing any brand, just stating what has worked for me in the past.
Well let me go sacrifice a 2 x 4 to the great wood god
