    Thoughts on making work rest slick?

    Without oil, something reasonably permanent? I looked at the fancy 3m 5490 slick tape and love the idea, but its $130+ for 36" that is prohibitively expensive. Trying not to scratch my blanks as much when close to finishing so either putting tape on the flats, or covering the work rest. I...
