When the wood feels like it is dragging and hard to turn when you are scolling, what can be done to make it slide more easily?

Larry, I usually wax the platform or table of my scrollsaw, about every 3-4 months. So I don't have this problem anymore, I use regular car paste wax and an electric buffer.

Len,

I use Johnson's paste wax and an old tee shirt.  I have read many times that wax needs to be free of silicone because it can transfer to the wood and can cause "fish eyes" when finish is applied. 

I use the wax on table saw, band saw and the blades.  On just about anything that is metal and touches wood.

Larry, I've also heard of the silicone being a trouble maker, that's why I don't use it on my larger saws. For the tablesaw and the bandsaw and some other items, I use Top Coat made by Bostitch. It is a good working product, and is an aerosol so it goes on easily and evenly. This, and the wax I mentioned earlier, are the only two methods that I use to stop items from being draggy on the tools. And to help keep the tools from getting rusty.
