      Hi, Jason. The “spritz” bottle was from Empire Manufacturing. That product is no longer made. The aerosol product is from Bostik and is called TopCote. Bostik has subsequently changed the name of the product to GlideCote. It’s available from Amazon.com.

    It would be nice if George told us what the heck he’s using after singing it’s praises!

    Hi, I have a Dewalt Job Site table saw. I’m not sure what the surface is made of. Do you think I need to lubricate it?

      Hi Steven. Yes. I would suggest lubricating the surface of any table saw.

    thanks, I’ve used paste wax before on my table saw, and it works great, but this seems like it’s a lot easier and a lot faster – I’ll have to give it a try!!

    I find that the propellant in the spray lubricant has a shelf life (depending on how long it has been been in stock at the distributor or how long you have owned it). So eventually the spray starts to “spit and sputter” leaving “globs” that are hard to buff out. So I find that a paste wax, such as Renaissance Wax, works much better and provides the benefits you are looking for with the spray product. What is your experience? Thanks.

      Hi Ray. I’ve never had the spray lubricant do what you are describing. I feel that I get very similar results when using silicon free paste wax, but the spray is just quicker to apply and easier to remove.
