Candle Wick for 'Home Made' Candles

This table lists the types and sizes of the candle wick that Dave Cushman used himself. I don't make candles, so I have looked elsewhere and there seems to be confusing and conflicting information. This is complicated by the different waxes used, needing different size wicks.

I will retain the table below in case it is of any help to anyone. My advice is to seek guidance from other candle makers or suppliers.

If you are able to populate this page I would appreciate input, so please .

All diameters are in mm and refer to the diameter of the finished candle that the wick is suitable for.
