The traditional way to prepare your (non o-ring) chain, with this Putoline Chain Wax. The chain is placed on the wax in the tin, and then heated on a stove. The wax melts and penetrates right into the chain, giving excellent lubrication. The chain is removed and allowed to drain, the wax cools and solidifies, and can be used over and over again. More work than normal chain lube, but the wax really penetrates and lasts. Please note that this is not suitable for use with o-ring chains.
