I'm a woodworker and woodturner and use a lot of waxes. Two of the common ones I use are Johnsons Paste, and Renaissance. Because of this and statements on this forum, I started using Renaissance on a couple of my cue shafts, and also on my Diamond Professional, cherry finish pool table. In wood turning I have almost completely stopped the practice of waxing turnings after finishing as I have found it to be a major attractor of dust. On my pool table, waxed with Renaissance, I was getting an imminence amount of greasy finger prints, so much so that I blamed my wife for using too much hand cream before shooting. I decided it had to be the wax. I now use Meguiar's carnauba deep crystal car wax, a much harder wax that leaves virtually no finger prints on the table. The table has a much smoother, and slippery non greasy feeling. I have quit using Renaissance wax on my pool shafts also, as they were getting dirty more frequently, and it just became a viscous cycle of cleaning and waxing. I now use cue silk for my shafts, and am pleased with that. I wonder if the carnauba car wax might actually be a better solution for those that like to wax their shafts, as Renaissance wax is appears to be a mix of softer waxes that will actually attract dust and dirt. I realize that a lot of people use and recommend Renaissance for use on shafts, and that's fine, but I just wanted to put this thought out there as a possible alternative for pool shafts, and also for wood finish pool tables, as it is a life saver for fingerprints on pool tables. My only experience with wax on shafts, is with wood shafts. I do have one carbon shaft, a Jacoby black, and do not do anything with that other than wipe it down, as it is super slick the way it is. Also as to use on tables, I have a cherry finish on maple wood, and it is very smooth. For a finished oak wood table that is a somewhat porous finish, not sure a car wax would work.
