    I built a sliding table for my bandsaw.

    The fence on the "fixed" side just gets clamped in place. I make test cuts to get the position correct.

    My stash of three "colors" dates back to 2012.
    It lasts a long time, at my pace.

    I use this, and any other solvent with my trusty, crusty heavy vinyl gloves.

    I stand corrected.

    My stash of paste wax is Briwax (toluene solvent) and Butchers (turpentine and naptha).

    The solvents dissolve suspended grease and grime.
