Wax is actually a fairly decent chain lube and, years ago when I used it, my chains lasted very well and ran quietly. Obviously, it's big plus is extreme cleanliness. I never got a chain tatoo on me or got chain marks on anything else.

However, it's a true PITA to do properly and you must have a chain with a master link these days. I did it when chains had reusable pins (pre 8-speed) and stopped when specific joining pins became the norm. I don't miss it.
