French chalk (magnesium silicate) is wonderfully useful stuff to have around the workshop with a broad range of uses. Also known as industrial talc or unscented talc we supply it in stick form or as a superfine powder. Among other things it can be used for:

  • in a muslin pounce bag for transferring layout lines through a perforated pattern
  • as a lubricant for moving wooden parts (drawer runners or sliding cupboard doors for example)
  • as a stropping compound
  • in tongue and groove floorboard joints to reduce squeaking
  • sprinkled over bicycle inner tube repairs to stop the tube sticking to the tyre
  • lifting grease stains from clothing
  • lubricating rubber seals to stop them sticking together
  • as a thickener for shellac
