Re: How to rewax a meerschaum pipe
I have no idea whether what I got is "quality" beeswax, but it is working on my meerschaum. It melts smoothly and covers the pipe nicely, it makes a good shine and the pipe is colouring nicely. . It is from Joanne's Fabrics, it is a small cake of beeswax in a round about 1 1/4" and 1/2 ' thick, in a very handy plastic holder. The holder is in 2 halves, so you can take one of the halves off and easily wax the pipe without touching the beeswax. The use in the "fabric world" is to wax the end of thread to make it easy to go thru a needle. It melts very nicely, either by heating up the pipe when smoking or rubbing on while the pipe is cold and heating with a hair dryer. It is inexpensive and works great. I tried to post a link, but you have to have 30 posts on puff forums to post a link, so if you go to Joannes's Fabrics and type in beeswax, it will show up.
