    BTW has anyone tried pure lanolin paste?
    yes, it is way too thick - almost a hard wax like substance. Bag Balm is much easier.

    This is mink oil from the Kiwi shoe polish guys? How do clean it off after sizing?

    Brillcream . . . . Butch Wax . . . . Flat tops! Just think, if we had all those things now like we did when we were kids, all we'd have to do is roll the casing across our head . . . wouldn't need a lube pad . . . and then re-size. Of coursx we would need the hair we had back then . . . for me, rolling a casing across my head now to lube it would find some bare spots on top where there wasn't any hair to hold the lube! LOL

    I find with the harder wax it's easier for me to put less on. I don't get so much on my finger when I dap the lube.

    I don't know what is in Unique either but I have some beef tallow that my Dad rendered out in the 70's and it smells looks the same also. The beef tallow is a lot stiffer than Unique. I tried both for ML patches but tallow is to thick.

    The antibiotic is for when you barely graze an animal it helps with healing faster. LOL
    Going back all those years, do you remember " Fitch's Rose Hair Oil " It would slide right down your forehead into the eyes by 10 pm. I remember as a young person, thinking it would be better not having dandruff when I went bald......(Is that a bald wish?) Well it hasn't happened yet. My lady barber does a lot of running her fingers through my hair. heh, heh, heh
