Many riders consider beeswax an essential shop tool. It's used as a retainer for screws, bolts, and dust caps that loosen. It's used to coat twine on handlebar tape. A bit at the end of your screwdriver or allen wrench will hold a screw destined for a hard to reach spot. It even lubricates thread for sewing.
We've been buying honey and candles from Joe, the local bee keeper, for years. He also makes these little cakes of pure bees wax for use in the shop or sewing room. $3.00 in the Velo Orange Store. By the way, if you've never had fresh unpasturized honey, you're missing a real treat.
