Wax that stops glue from sticking

    In a few videos - like "power tool/base cabinets/episode 74" and in one of the episodes of "power tools/hinge box" you have used a small can of wax with a foam brush to control where the glue goes where you want it, and where the glue doesn't go where you don't want it. In the first case when you were gluing the cabinet doors up, and in the other case when you were gluing a wooden hinge to a box. What wax are you using to do that? If you use it, will it prevent stain from penetrating the wood, or finish (varnish, lacquer, etc) from setting as well?

    Hi Bob, any wax will do, I grab that one more for the convenience of being a small can with a twist lid.  It is expensive, $30 for that small can.  You also have to make sure you dont get it where you dont want it or you are correct in assuming it will disrupt any finish.  cheers

    I like Rob’s answer that any glue will do.  

    There was a mention about using a specific wax in a video I was watch.  This product was mentioned by a well know US word worker as a product that would prevent the glue from sticking.  It cost $10 and another $12 (ouch) for shipping so I didn’t buy it.  https://tooling.weinigusa.com/product-p/xxx100082.htm. The company also offers a spray specifically described as preventing glue adhesion.  https://tooling.weinigusa.com/product-p/xxx1002450.htm

    Happy New Year
