Re: SST wax

Stainless steel doesn't need wax especially if it's been passivated (Acid treatment). Read this article>>>Why is Stainless Steel Stainless?
Get one of the SS polishes, which has the acid in the ingredient like Star Brite or 3M
Metal Restorer & Polish Manuf. # 09019.

Re: SST wax

Thanks for the info esp the article I will look for one of those acid/polishes when I am back up north here the boat polishers use an acid called brite boy but it has a tendancey to cause problems on rigging threads so the riggers don't recimend you using it
Thanks again Warren
