Dubbing wax dispenser

By cutting the tip off a syringe you can make yourself a fine dubbing wax dispenser.
Choose a syringe with a diameter of about 1.5-2 centimeters (½") and cut the off the tip where the narrow opening is. Remove any irregularities with a knife or fine sand paper.
You can now pour your melted wax into the newly opened end of the syringe until it is almost full. When the wax has stiffened, you can slowly push the piston and expose a little wax beyond the opening. Pull this along the tying thread and push again when the exposed wax has been used.
The dispenser works best with the very hard types of wax that do not stick to the sides of the syringe.
