Speed Wax, soooo much easier on maintenance

I used MSW, but switched to plain paraffin. The MoS2 and PTFE save you on the order of <.1W. The MoS2 also makes the wax flakes very dark and noticeable on a white bike like mine.
Are you using the candle grade paraffin, food grade etc, or does it matter?

I’ve been using MSW, but want to try regular paraffin.

Food grade / Gulf wax bars. Stuff sold as candle wax is often impure.

Wonder how doing MSW 1 to 1 with Plain Paraffin would go. Less dark mess more chains per batch.

I had the chain from my Giant TCR waxed by a local mechanic (molten speed wax) the chain had only done 100miles or so, I decided to rewax it myself using plain paraffin wax. After the first treatment, the chain was pretty noisy, after my rewaxing it is a lot quieter. I couldn't see many air bubbles come from the chain so I think the MSW penetrated OK. Thoughts ?

Shaking stuff about in a tub/jar of white spirits cleans fast and effectively. Solvent will evaporate by it self eliminating prolonged or elaborate drying. It does stink some tho.

Does anyone have some good recommendations for ultrasonic cleaners that also somehow fit dinner plate MTB cassettes? :)
