I need to get some fresh talc, have used up what we had here, which wasn't a lot. I figure 2-3 oz will probably last me 50 years. I know it has to be scent-free, just talc, but are there grades? Is there anything else I need to know?

Thanks!
Tim

Tire talc - NAPA auto parts 16oz $8.49.
Might as well pick up a pair of spark plug terminal pliers for sections while you're there $9.99.

Haha, should have looked here before I went to my local paint-shop and bought 650 grams of it... (No joke, I have a bag of the stuff). Maybe I should start selling..

got some, thanks! As usual, an FPN'er answered the call... And I have a set of terminal pliers, too...took them from my toolbox and moved them to the pen repair box, where they're getting a whole lot more use.

I got mine at my local pharmacy. They use it for something so they always have it. They put it in a medicine bottle and charged me very little (I forget how much).
