    I struggle with this a bit. I wax my playfields (with Blitz). Perhaps it's my eyesight, and perhaps it's because these are home use machines that I'll hit up every few months, but it's really hard for me to see what is waxed and what needs cleaning. I feel like it's all pretty clean save some rubber dust.

    What would be a simple test to determine there is enough wax on the surface, or if the wax should be replaced entirely?

    Quoted from vid1900:

    I use the one that came with the Craftsman Shopvac.
    No scratches.

    I suppose you could punch holes in a microfiber cloth and then rubber-band it to the attachment.
