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

    Very useful product

    I use it to mark the surfaces when using a rasp or a file on darkwoods. Helps me to balance the strokes and see where I'm putting more pressure

    Nice, chalk, does the job for rubbing on a file to limit embedded filings. Satisfying chunks! Chalk! Need I say more.
