Sanding Wax

Sanding Wax

Please view my Turning Supplies section for great prices on woodturning supplies HERE.

Below are two recipes for this product.  One uses paraffin wax and the other uses bees wax.  The bees wax seems to be a little better but is more expensive.

 

Equipment:
1 Large pot with water

1 Small pot placed into the water

 

Bees wax:

Ingredients:
16 ounce mineral oil
1 lb. bees wax
1 pint containers with lids.

Boil a pot of water and place the smaller pot into the water. This is known as a double boiler. Add the bees wax and oil to smaller pot. Allow the wax to melt. Bees wax melts at less than 200 degrees so the boiling water will melt it slowly. As soon as it is melted, remove it from the water and set on counter. Stir the mixture for a few seconds. Scoop out some of the melted oil/wax mixture into your containers to cool.

 

Paraffin Wax:

One ¼ pound bar of paraffin wax

½ cup of mineral oil.

Boil a pot of water and place the smaller pot into the water. This is known as a double boiler. Add the paraffin wax and oil to smaller pot. Allow the wax to melt. As soon as it is melted, remove it from the water and set on counter. Stir the mixture for a few seconds. Scoop out some of the melted oil/wax mixture into your container to cool.

 

After using the sanding wax, I use Shellawax cream.

This product will not freeze, or dry out, and it will last for years.
