Router Plane Lubricant

Postby Essar » Sat Aug 18, 2018 1:57 pm

I'm looking for a lubricant to spray onto the sole of a router plane. It has to be dry so that it won't stain or leave a residue on the wood I'm running the plane over, but it also has to allow the plane to run smoothly across the surface without rubbing or squeaking. Does anyone have any advice as to what products are available please?
Many thanks in advance.

Just rub a candle on the sole, no need for anything more sophisticated.
