Good advice from Mr. Starr.
I would add that even though you might pay a bit of a premium, buy from
Bookmaker's. The folks there are a wonderful source of not just
hard-to-find supplies, but also advice and information. The small amount
of money you might save buying from one of the large corporate suppliers
isn't worth the loss of such a resource.
The Victory wax is meant to be used in waxing sewing thread, as a
substitute for the traditional beeswax. That is why it comes in a block.
