Welcome!

I use Johnson's Paste Wax on my aluminum router table top. I use it on my CI tables, too! It's cheap and seems to work well on everything - both to keep tops slippery and to prevent rust on CI tables.

I would think that Butcher's would give similar results. Just avoid automotive waxes with any silicone in them. Wood finishes don't like that stuff at all.

Yes, but it does corrode/oxidize. On top of that, I think a coat of wax helps the stock slide across the aluminum. I like your Topcote idea.
