    I do the same thing and fill the lib balm containers with Skidmore's Beeswax Waterproofing  (http://www.skidmores.com/products.asp?cat=14) I buy it in bulk.

    There is an article in the RawHide Gazette (http://pslac.org/public/08_aug16.pdf) on page 10 that shows the process and give ordering information for lip balm filling materials.

    Hope this helps.

    They removed the article.  Here is another way to see it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uQESGNKM0U2c5R9W_4rC_BvMq4rl0E8m/view?usp=sharing

    How do you keep the critters (I'm mostly worried about rats and mice) out?

    Traps and Cats.  Almost impossible to make air tight.  Those damn mice can get through the smallest crack or hole.  Don't ask me how I know....

    WOW, Bob, those Robert Beard tools look nice.  Can't seem to find prices anywhere.  Does he only sell through Facebook?

    Price range is much like those of a bladesmith work.  I usually purchase Bob's tools at the leather shows he attends like the Rocky Mountain Leather show in Sheridan, WY in May. Whatever I've paid for them in the past, I can sell them for more now.  Here is a sampling of the tool impressions ( https://www.pinterest.com/pin/98094098114540664/  ).  Call him, (505) 632-7039 and ask your questions.  Or send him a Facebook message.  I used to live in England and had Bob send me the tools I needed and paid the price of his tools and the duty, just to get his pebble grained tools.  For a cheaper price and a comparable quality the Barry King tool are worth their price and hold their value.
