We didn’t make this up. The Australian company that makes this product gave it a badass name that’s up there with Stanley’s Fubar — Shithot Waxtik. Following the discussions on carnauba and budget woodturning wax, I found this professional blended wax stick that includes carnauba, beeswax, microcrystalline wax, and others. With light pressure the wax stick produces a “lustrous sheen,” and with heavier pressure it gives a “satin finish.”

Unfortunately, it comes from Australia, and their online ordering is down until mid-April 2008 — evidently, this is a real outage. They provide an Australian number for phone orders, and at least one U.S. distributor, PSI Woodworking Products, carries it.

A pack of five wax sticks runs $60 Australian.

    I’m guessing the proper pronunciation is shi-thot or maybe shith-ot? 😉

    At the link to the following, a person claiming to be associated with U-Beaut industries who manufactures this product claims that it really is pronounced shit-hot. See post #7 from “U-Beaut”.
