Adding to cart… The item has been added

French chalk (magnesium silicate) is wonderful stuff to have around the workshop with a wide range of uses. Also known as welders chalk, tailors chalk or soapstone we supply it either as a powder or as convenient sticks sawn from natural rock. It can be used:

  • for marking up dark coloured timber and metal surfaces.
  • as a welding flux.
  • for marking up fabric.
  • 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
