Looking over some of the bodies I've been working on I decided that the finish was good enough on some of them. I started assembly and worked at it until help arrived (3 yer old grandson) who wanted some shop time with papa.

I ruined one that is not in the photos. Both back axle pegs seized before they were fully inserted. It's not the first time this has happened. I can cut the wheels off and re drill the holes but its a pain. I really think I should start drilling the holes 1/64 larger than the plan and pining the axle pegs.

They look great. Do you use the paste wax on these as well?

Not on the shellac? I never thought of that. The wax is for the axles. I like to put abit there to lubricate the wheels. It helps them roll better and helps prevent gluing the wheels to the car body. The can of was it on my bench all the time. I wax my tools to prevent tings like glue from sticking to them. It protects against rust and lubricates.

Using the wax on tools is a good idea  I haven't done it on my hand tools yet but recently i inherited 3  block planes two of which need some T L C , in my research I came across Paul Sellers  rag in a can which may be worth a look

Put the link to the youtube video on a line by itself and it will automatically insert the video.


If Paul Sellers says it works...

I need to make one of these for my garden tools.  

I'm sticking with Johnson's Paste wax for all other tools. It's easy. It works. I can use it in places where I would never use oil. Like the top of my saw.
