I dont think youll want to put wax on it as that may build up and if it gets wet, the cable slide may stick and jerk and the draw. I think you want to use a light silicone or graphite spray on the cable guide bar. I dont think id use anything like wax or veg. oil as they get sticky over time...

You can buy teflon cable slide tape or you can replace the stock slide with a teflon slide.This will cure your issue and not create smells like some of the sprays and such will do.
