Do a search for resin suppliers. I'm thinking that I saw it on one of those sites when I was considering doing a resin coated cotton tape wrap on a handle.


If you're not making mistakes then you're not trying hard enough

I am assuming you are treating thread for stitching. I use "Bull Riders rosen" that can be purchased at most any saddle store or anyplace they sell cowboy rigging. The rider reaches into the bag and gets the rosin on his glove, then quickly rubs it up and down his bucking reign. It heats up and melts to give him a tihgt, nonslip, grip. The cost in Salina, Utah at the saddle shop was $7.00 for a about a pound.

I use Bees wax and a bit of pure "neadsfoot oil" to mix with the rosin. I heat it it until it will pour and pull it like "taffey" intil it cools and will stay in a ball. I run the rosin ball back and forth on the thread intil it melts a smooth coating. This keeps the stitches nice and tight.

If I have guessed incorectly about your use, please forgive me. After all, I'm just an old fat man that has been rode hard and put away wet.

Best wishes, Larry Peterson

Thank you friends..

Hey larry thanks! My intent exactly. Was wanting to get some pine sap to make stitching wax.

If you do not want to buy a pound of wax and a pound of rosin plus shipping, if you are not in a 'production mode' and just want to 'sample' something.... Go to Search for bow string wax... for about $4 plus shipping you can have enough wax for several years. Thanks to nthe10ring for the tip.
