It was Johnson’s wax that I used on the shaper. I use it on all the flat metal surfaces in the shop. Most everything is in the air conditioned shop, but the shaper is on the ‘barn side’ – indoors but not in a protected environment. The wax holds up very well. Of course any good wax should be just fine, as long as it based on beeswax. I would not use car wax.

I had a great friend, now deceased, that would come over and visit most days. He’d drink one beer, and between sips he’d rest the beer on my jointer outfeed table. As soon as he was gone I’d wipe off the moisture and rewax that spot. No rust.
