4-Pack Wool Wax Daubers for Log Inoculation
|Dimensions||1.5" wool ball + 5" metal handle|
These high-quality, jumbo-sized wool wax daubers are designed for wax application over holes containing mushroom plugs and/or sawdust spawn in inoculated logs. (They're also great for soaking up any wax drips!)
If inoculating logs in fall and applying wax in temps below 50 degrees F, daubers and wax will harden quickly. Therefore, we recommend a plugged-in crock pot (vs. a pot taken from the stove) for dipping.

Ease of purchase
The purchase process was a breeze. We decided with the impending Nor’easter that we would wait until April to cut our hardwood and use the plugs and dobbers. More purchases will follow.
These worked great!
These wax daubers were sooooo much better than the brush I was trying to use before. It leaves a nice dot on the hole and covers nicely. They do get a bit messy but they’re so cheap I don’t mind using up a few.
The daubers worked decent. I attached a price of pipe to make the handle a little longer and easier to use. I may try a paint brush next time.
I was on the fence about getting these because it seemed silly to spend money on something that looked so simple to make. Boy am I glad I got them. These are well made and worth the money with how easy it was to use. Worked great!
They beat any home-made approaches I've tried
Before I used these, I tried daubing with a cotton swab fastened to a dowel, but the cotton would partially stick to the log and pull fibers off as a daubed. After that I tried one of those disposable foam paintbrushes, which was a bit better, but they fell apart pretty quickly in the hot wax. These daubers, on the other hand, are affordable and they're holding up well. They also seem to hold more wax than anything else I've tried. Given the price of these, I don't see much point in trying to make a DIY dauber in the future.
