I have waxed chains using pure paraffin, paraffin mixed with beeswax, paraffin mixed with bar chain oil, paraffin mixed with light oil, all producing the same results. Pure paraffin was the most satisfying, however I had to re-lube at 100-130 miles otherwise squeaking would ensue. I now use Dumonde Tech lube which I believe has Teflon in it, which brings me to this, add Teflon to the wax solution with perhaps some type of oil or solvent carrier to get the wax and Teflon into the pivots. I have not tried this, but it makes sense to me.
