Use waterproof boat trailer grease.
You won't get any bee hives either!

Subject: [TowerTalk] bees wax application

i saw a reference to bees wax again today for applying on a crank up tower
where there is the steel to steel rubbing on the inside of the legs.  i
looked in the archives and didn't see any reference to what is the trick to
applying it to the inside of the legs.  i was able to get some from a local
bee keeper.  in its normal hard form, it crumbles in chunks as i try to rub
it on. so then i heated it in a old pie pan, and it was like water and then
solidified in minutes.  looking at the tx-472, this looked like it was going
to be a real chore to put on.
any tricks out there?
