You are supposed to take the beef stroganoff out of the crock pot before you put your block of wax in it.

What I have learned from this thread

This thread has confirmed for me (again) that I'd rather not wax, though many find it beneficial.

And I have learned (again) that, after about 50 posts, many threads devolve into the same few...

That's a good argument for (pure) wax, as well. At least some of the popular (non-spray) chain lubes have a lot of volatile organic compounds, both as carriers (the ones that tell you to let the...

I was a waxing skeptic before I tried it. Thought it was “too much work,” but after doing so find it much easier than cleaning, re-lubing the chain 1-2x per week.

Just got mine a few days ago. Bought it at REI during an extra-rebate weekend for a net cost of about $240. Pretty happy with it so far, esp since the setup is sooo much easier than on a Garmin.
