on my table saw i use a good dose of linseed oil the reason i dont use wax like many others is where in live here in florida is it is very hot(87 deg at 6 am this morning)and when i cut i dont want the wax transfer to the wood even with a good sanding wax may still be present and the finishes may not apply saw is 4 years old and sitll looks very good. i would not use wd-40 as it is not a rust preventer it is a penatrating oil for breaking up rust on bolts(i also prefer P.B.blaster for that more than wd)as far as the rest of the products you have listed some i have never heard of and i have not used any of the others(what is break free clp?)hope this helps some and i am sure others will chime in as well with what works for them.

I perfer bees wax for my table saw top... When I am not going to be using it for quite some time. (I used to use WD-40 when I didnt know any better and got surface rust). I use steel wool to take the bees wax off when going to do a project.

Oldslowchevy is right PB BLASTER is the best for busting loose bolts.

I have also used 3 in 1 oil for lots of things, especially for squeaks, never for protecting a finish. If your going to do that, then ANY oil would be a good protecterant... Not recommended for table top saws in my opinion, as it leaves a film and has to be taken off with a solvent.

I have never heard of the other products either, so I cant give an opinion one way or another...

I use Johnson's paste wax or Rain Dance car wax, Eagle One on painted surfaces.

Johnson's for winter dressing. I remove it with mineral spirits before I cut anything that wax would affect.

Rain Dance paste wax in the spring and again when I notice any drag against the table or the fences.

The Eagle One has Teflon in it and I use it once on the painted surfaces when I set up my shop tools. I use it occasionally on my nail guns and my saws, or any metal parts painted or not.

Beeswax is great on the bottom of a plane. Wipe it down, buff it, right before you use it. Amazing how smooth a cut you can get. I've never had a problem with any finish after using beeswax.

I prefer to wax. WD-40 is more of a detergent than a lubricant.

There is a Canadian product called RustChek, it is used on cars & trucks but is available in small spray cans. You spray it on, leave it overnight and then wipe it off. It lasts for a long time. One year on vehicles under bodies.

I like WD40 for surface applications; if there is a chance what I'm spraying could get dusty (ie. Patio door rollers, window block and tackle springs) I use silicone spray, WD40 attracts dust where as Silicone spray does not. And on operator gears grease is a must, I like using white lithium grease spray, easy to apply neatly.
