Re: Can someone identify this tool?
Indeed, Kelley offers a "Copper Wax Tube Fastener"
When using a solid bottom bar or grooved top bar frame, there needs to be a way to fasten the foundation or the starter strip to the bars. This is the tool for the job. Carefully double melt some wax and dip this tool into it. By then placing your thumb over the hole in the handle, you will have trapped the wax in the tube. When you release your thumb you will be able to release a fine stream of wax onto top and bottom bars to hold foundation firmly in place.
