George Vondriska teaches you how to properly lubricate your dovetail jigs to get a smoother glide with your handheld router for woodworking projects. When applying a lubricant to an aluminum template and a power tool with sensitive parts and small cracks, he recommends that you use a woodworking-specific product like GlideCote (not a silicone-based spray) that will allow both surfaces to glide effortlessly without the worry of jamming or sticking.
