Lots of you guys like to..
Various materials in your gunsmithing..
If you need a non toxic..non spilling lubricant for all the above operations..
Just go to your local market or hardware store and grab a box of WAX.
I use this stuff all the time on whatever I happen to be machining..cutting drilling etc...
Works GREAT! and as an added extra bonus it also acts as a rust inhibitor at the same time!
You will wonder how you ever got things done without it..
