I have been using Johnson's Paste wax on my CI tools but being in the unheated and humid garage it sounds like T-9 may be a better way to go. Is there any reason to not use it after having used paste wax? Will it adhere? Anyone else done this?
Thanks all!

if your gonna give your tools a 1-2 punch go with wax (paste) and to coat after the wax has had some time to be on the surface like a couple of days or a week. You can also put in an AC it works just like a dehumidifyer. This is what i have in my shop i'm in the basement, and my new TS was having a problem with rust and this is how i fixed it wax,TC,and AC.

I use the T-9 first, buff it, then add paste wax after the T-9 is good and dry. Never tried the T-9 over the paste wax. I usually hit the saw with mineral spirits first.

Johnsons Paste wax is >75% solvent by weight.

I don't like the finish T9 leaves. Never seems glassy smooth to me, no matter how much I buff it.

I like to dissolve parrafin in MS and apply that then normal paste wax. helps fill the pores in.
