    Default bur life/cut lube

    Please!
    I don't like beeswax/candles, but love this both for saw and coil cutting. Would be lovely not to have to go elsewhere for it

    No. I don't like beeswax at all - it clogs up my blades and feels horrid. Funnily enough I don't like honey either!

    Cut lube comes in a push-up stick, and is a bit drier somehow, so it lubricates the blade without making it feel claggy. It's excellent for drilling and to use on burr cups as well.

    I didn't know you could get anything else! I hate beeswax for lubrication too (although I adore the smell).

    Bless you Ben!
    Amazing what a difference in spelling will do. I've certainly not seen it on the site before - and the packaging would suggest it might be a recent addition (along with a lot of other EuroTool stuff).

    I've got enough to last a bit longer, so I guess that's one for the next freepost then

    Please be careful if using non-standard lubricants / degreasers or other chemicals many of which can be extremely dangerous - this guy used brake cleaner as a degreasant, nearly died and ended up permanently damaging his organs!!
    It was a miniscule amount too - you can read about it here
    PLEASE read labels before using something not designed for the task at hand...
