If you don’t see any rust, the steel wool seems like overkill. You don’t need much wax because you are going to buff most of it off anyway. The more wax you put on, the longer you have to wait before buffing it. All you need is to see a slight haze. I keep a coarse shop rag in the wax tin and simply make sure it feels loaded and give it a quick wipe down and buff it with a similar coarse rage about 5 minutes later.

BTW, if you store green wood in your shop, you need to be extra diligent with your CI maintenance. I’ve seen it cause the CI to rust in a few weeks. In fact, you might want to add a dehumidifier if you have a significant amount of green wood in your shop.
