I use Danish oil on most things as it is easy to apply and reapply, French polish on Mrs W`s retro 70`s furniture, to prepare the finished surface I have just found some stuff called Yorkshire Grit, its brilliant stuff and saves a lot of sanding.

On a serious note, I use WD40 on the table saw sledges to get them sliding smoothly.

I use machine wax on all my metal surfaced tools - stops them binding and for the iron ones stops them rusting too.
