    This is not a video about lubricating the tablesaw. It is simply about treating the tabletop surface.

    I recently bought a new saw and the cast iron top had that sticky preserving grease. I tried using GooGone but had no luck removing it. Do you have any suggestions?

  3. Vince Arcuri on May 30, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    What is the difference between TopCoat and T9? Can either be used for this purpose?

  4. Mark Price on May 30, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    He is using a product called "TopCote 10220 Aerosol Lubricant" by Bostik. If you search Google Images for that name, you will agree that it’s what he is using. This product comes in an aerosol can and is designed to be used on steel bases, like table saw tables, joiner & planer tables, lathe beds, band saw tables and so on. The way the product works is you simply spray a light coat of it on, wait a few minutes and buff off. Another good product is called Dri-Cote…

    How do you have a saw stop art they like $2500

  6. Owen Lewis on May 30, 2023 at 12:23 pm

    Can I lubricate my bandsaw blades with paste wax? Or Do you have a better idea of what I could use? I want a very light lubricating if anything. Or, maybe you would say I don’t need to lube them..? Thanks

    So….what’s the product????

  8. JFG Axeworks on May 30, 2023 at 12:26 pm

    Is anyone else’s OCD triggered when he doesn’t complete wiping the top off? HE MISSED ONE LITTLE SPOT behind the blade guard.

    I use top coat also on my table saw top and my planer bed and jointer top. I spray it inside the collet on my router and it keeps the bit from sticking after use. Good product. One thing I have noticed about cast iron table saw tops. I sand them down with my palm sander before I use top coat. the sand paper turns black .Is that carbon from the cast iron?

    If you don´t have a rust problem – just rub a candle on the saw or planer table, a little goes a long way

  11. Frank Woods on May 30, 2023 at 12:35 pm

    So l searched for Woody Hyezmar on the net. You can get his plans, although they’re not up there with the best, there’s some good stuff too.

  12. Alexis XYZ on May 30, 2023 at 12:36 pm

    Guys, does somebody know what type of grease should I use on the transmission gears of a table saw? It was yellow when I cleaned it out. Thanks!

  13. Greg on May 30, 2023 at 12:37 pm

    go with jojoba oil. you can get it from vitamin shoppe or online. cheap and works really well. non-toxic and isnt as messy as the sprays

  14. A. G. on May 30, 2023 at 12:45 pm

    Couldn’t be sillier – "spray this stuff" – what’s the name of the stuff?

  15. Hunsucker Eric on May 30, 2023 at 12:49 pm

    whats the name of the stuff? duhhhh. not helpful dude

  16. Mark Price on May 30, 2023 at 12:51 pm

    And finally a 3rd good product is called Bearing Lubricant. is used to lubricate bearings, particularly those in high speed areas, like routers, jointers etc. The tools even seem to sound better once they have been treated! And NO, I do not work or endorse Bostik…LOL Just figured I would answer what the WWGOA hasn’t.

  17. dhtsoaeds dhtnadi on May 30, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    "lubricating table saw" and i think i’m going to learn about lubing the elevator/tilt mechs not this shit.

  18. JJ T on May 30, 2023 at 12:56 pm

    Can you share the name of the products?

  19. Dn Twn Bro on May 30, 2023 at 1:00 pm

    It looked like the spray can is "Top Coat". I use it and it does really work good:-)

  20. James Hochstetler on May 30, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    I’m amazed as you would say why you don’t share the product names!

  21. kelsea Turner on May 30, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    *Saw is perfect **MyBest.Tools** Couldn’t ask for better*

  22. antigen4 on May 30, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    this has NOTHING to do with lubricating a saw – please THINK when formulating titles!

  23. President of The Internet on May 30, 2023 at 1:06 pm

    Spray a tiny shot of PTFE on your router bits once they are seated in your router and they will stay sharp twice as long – just dont get any in the collet or on the shaft of the bit

  24. Tablesawed on May 30, 2023 at 1:08 pm

    Name those lubracants Please

  25. Mark Price on May 30, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    The second product is something they call DRICOTE. This product also comes in an aerosol can and is meant to spray on circular saw blades. It not only cleans the blades, it helps to keep them clean by repelling tree saps, and creating fine film between the steel blade and the wood. This product also works well especially for greener woods.
