Might be a silly question but what does everyone use to put on their cast iron tool tops? And where do you get it?
Where those stats just pulled from thier website? Thats most definately not real world results.GlideCote is better than wax, IMO.
GLIDECOTE®/TOPCOTE® features a unique fluoropolymer technology that dramatically reduces sliding friction on table saws while it repels dust, dirt, moisture and prevents corrosion. Its dry formula contains no silicone or petroleum and it will never stain wood or interfere with glues or finishes.
GlideCote forms a durable, water-repelling dry film on saw tables and tool surfaces to reduce sliding friction and eliminate surface "hang ups." Compared to paste wax, GlideCote is 30% slicker, prevents rust longer and is easier to use.
Contains no silicone
Prevents rust 5 times longer than wax or silicone
Lasts 3 times longer than wax
My real world results are that it is slicker than wax and does last longer. The "stats" are from Constantines site, not from Bostick. As with any product...some like it...some don't.Where those stats just pulled from thier website? Thats most definately not real world results.
I havnt found a product that makes my tools slicker. It absolutely dosnt last longer than wax and its definately not durable. The only time I have ever had issues with my tools rusting was when I used this product. Its a great product if you reapply it every other day. I only reapply wax about once a month. Cost should also be a factor when you consider how often it needs to be aaplied to be affective. Its kind of like the auto parts places that give you a lifetime warranty on the more expensive brake pads that burn up in a few months. Whats the point?
It is definately slicker than anything else available. I used to like it, untill my saw top rusted three days after I applied it. Now, it was a very light coat of rust that rubbed right off but still. I havnt had that issue with wax at all and I dont reapply near as often.My real world results are that it is slicker than wax and does last longer.
