Quoted from dashv:
Are you supposed to wax the shooter lane too? Do you wax the metal rails the balls travel across and metal parts of the ramps?
Not a silly question at all.
Wax everyplace the ball touches.
Shooter lane, ramps, guides, wire guides, chutes....waxing removes the friction of the ball scraping along.
So a waxed ramp lasts longer before you have to take it out and buff it clear again.
A waxed chute causes less wear on the ball.
A waxed wire guide will abrade the ball less.....you get the idea.
