Wax tube fastner is a simple device that’s a real lifesaver when it comes to installing foundation sheets in the frame. When you’re working with solid bottom bar or grooved top bar frames, you need to fasten the foundation itself into the frame so it doesn’t slide around. This tool helps you do just that. To use, melt some beeswax and dip the tool into it. Then place your thumb over the hole in the handle to trap the melted wax inside the copper tube. With the tool positioned over where the foundation or started strip attaches to the frame, release your thumb to allow a fine stream of wax to flow. The wax will harden and hold your foundation securely in place. Easy to use, handy to have!
