To Tallow or Talc?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I've been pondering about the topic of stopper lubrication and was wondering what peoples opinions were about using Tallow (rendered lambs fat) or Talcum powder.


I can see advantages to both options; e.g. with Tallow you can effectively 'set and forget' and it does provide some seal in the gaps that can occur between the leather and the pipe.


Would be interested to hear other contributors views on this.
