I have a delta 22-580 13" two speed planer that stopped feeding.It's three years old and was mostly used on pine. I haven't tried taking it apart yet,figured I'd ask first.
What type of wax would work best? I have a 13" bench top Jet that is becoming problematic. This is something I haven't tried yet.If you haven't done it already, clean the feed rollers with naptha or alcohol, and wax the tables....in a pinch, wiping the tables with wax paper will do.
I suppose you have evidence of this? Nevermind...of course you don't. But I will test your theory this week and be back to confirm or deny your claims. I have been using it for many moons (perhaps 30 years)with no recollection of "screwed up" finishes.Don't - DO NOT - don't even think about spraying any surface of machinery that will touch the wood with silicone. It is evil, evil stuff. It is hard to get rid of and it will screw up most finishes.
If spraying it on your equipment won't "mess up most finishes" then the assertion was erroneous. If something is a "reasonable belief" it should be easy to, at a minimum, illustrate the reasoning behind the belief.Don't - DO NOT - don't even think about spraying any surface of machinery that will touch the wood with silicone. It is evil, evil stuff. It is hard to get rid of and it will screw up most finishes.
As will most waxes and dust and water and adhesives and oil etc etc etc.silicone most definitely will mess up finishes.
Small world ain't it.:no:We used to have a factory that was 2 doors from a car detailers. They used atomisers containing polish for dashboards and polishing vehicles.
2 ruined lacquer jobs later, you guessed it, we traced the fault to silicon in the car detailers. Wattyl sent a chemist and rep to find the problem. The spray painter down in factory 7 had 7 jobs ruined by the same thing.
They actually supply desiliconising drops so that you do not get "fisheye" in your finish because of silicon.
