I was looking at the Felix Lube recipe, which calls for a chunk of beeswax about 3.5" x 3.5" x 1".
I just did a little research, and found the following site http://www.reade.com/Particle_Briefings/spec_gra2.html that states that beeswax weighs 60 lbs/cu ft.
1728 cu inches of beeswax = 60 lbs
28.8 cu inches of beeswax = 16 oz
The felix lube recipe calls for 3.5"x3.5"x1" chunk of beeswax
the felix lube recipe calls for 12.25 cu in of beeswax
12.25 cu in of beeswax should weigh 6.8 oz.
Walgreens carries 7.5 oz containers of 100% beeswax $2.00 http://www.walgreens.com/store/catal...sku=sku3458861 so one of these should have more than enough for a batch of lube.
Since beeswax seems to be selling for $12-$16/lb everywhere else, I wonder why this Walgreens stuff is selling for about $4/lb, and whether it will work in Felix lube?
