Tallow has a variety of uses but we sell it mainly for use in woodwork restoration.

It can aid with screwing fixings into hardwoods, particularly when brass screws are used. For this purpose, a mixture of about half tallow and half beeswax is recommended. The wax and tallow are melted over a low heat, mixed and allowed to cool and solidify. This reduces the risk of screw breakage during initial screw penetration and also eases later screw removal should this be required.
