Johnsons Paste Wax

Anyone ever use this stuff on their wood stocks before? I just was thinking if it is strong enough to walk on then it might be a good finish for wood grips or refinishing rifle stocks. I know guys use it on blued steel to seal it and protect it.

I have used it on my bows and also on my wooden arrows does a fantastic, long lasting job on both plus making the arrows much eaisier to pull from tightly bound cardboard targets. Now you've just given me a new use for it--- Thanks!

I use it on all my wooden stocks. It works great. Easy to touch up. Never tried on steel, but says it can be used for that.

I have used it on our Oak table top to protect the finish. It does a great job but I can't seem to find it in our local stores.

I've used it on blued guns and wood stocks for decades. Works great. Put a super shine on blued steel. Also protects it from rusting. Makes stocks look great. A can will last you a long time. Use it on holsters as well to keep them from creaking.

I used Johnsons Paste Wax for many years on my stocks. Now I only use it for bullet lube and furniture. I found Renaissance Wax

I have used it in the past.

Now use a mix of Linseed Oil, Beeswax, and Turpentine.

This also works great.

It will work fine on the wood stock and hangrips. It does a great job on metal also. Clean my table saw with alcohol, dry it and then apply the paste wax. Let dry and buff off. Makes the surface nice and smoooth and prevents rust. Great product.

Lemon Pledge Furniture Polish will do the same thing on both metal and wood. Just spray it on and wipe it off.
