beeswax?
Feb 25th, 2015 at 5:38pm
 
Any of you guys got a source for some beeswax? I'll trade a sling or something for some, I need to get some and the only stuff I can find 'round here is candles, which I'm pretty sure are just scented paraffin.
I'm shooting for anything from 1oz to a pound.

Does it have to be beeswax? Skateboarders use a waxy stick for grinding that might work. As well, leatherwork sometimes uses beeswax, you could check a craft or leather outlet store.

I bought some from Tandys leather a few years back. They have (or had) half and one oz blocks.

I'd trade you some, if it wasn't stuck in storage halfway across the continental United States :p

Any decent archery supplier should have it... Used on bowstrings.
