You mean soaking chain in molten wax? I did that once...made an absolute fucking mess and it didn’t last...admittedly I did use candle wax if I recall...also chain has to be absolutely spotless otherwise you just get shitty gritty wax
Yeah, the plan would be to clean the fuck out of a chain or two and then wax them, properly with MSW or something. GCN used a bulk bag of paraffin wax off amazon or something so I guess that works. There's also the original Friction Facts recipe out there but that involves more chemicals so I'd probably test the simplest version first.
Also, MSW instructions reckon you can just dump training chains in the wax. Presumably they are talking about chains that have already been degreased and waxed once rather than new chains covered in packing grease.
