                  @ CherryBlossomCandles
                  - Thanks, I like to do my bit to help the chandler community.

                  @ Everyone - After receiving a few requests I've now added:

                  - A Bipol-X calc tab (bit of a funny additive this as you add it depending on how much FO you're using but there's an upper limit for its usage so this works all that out for you now including the cut off point.)

                  - A Cost Per Unit calc so you can easily work out, based on the supplies you buy, how much each candle costs to produce. Should help with working out how many mattresses you'll be needing to stuff all your profits under

                  The latter may come as a separate tool as it spans multiple tabs itself. Undecided on this just yet...

                  Work on these two additions is almost complete. I just have a little user acceptance testing on the latter to make sure it fits the bill.

                  In addition to this I'm still working on a "wick suggestion tool" where you enter the basic details (wax type, candle type, size, FO load etc.) and it will provide a few examples of suitable wicks for that application. Well, it will give you starting points at least. As each batch of wax etc. differs there will still be some testing and tinkering needed, but all in all it should be a useful reference tool as a start for beginers...

                  Happy to hear any further ideas on what might be useful.. Can't promise I can deliver everything, but I'll give it a go.
                  It helps keep me occupied during my 3 hours a day commuting!

                  PS. The sheer number of hits on this thread would suggest there are non-registered users out there that may be interested in this tool.. I'm not selling it and expect no reward for my efforts other than the thanks of its users.
                  If you aren't registered and would like a copy, you can sign up in seconds and that will allow you to PM me your email address. The more people involved, the more ideas there are and the better the tool becomes for all.

                    I see Spencer101 hasn't post on these forums in some time and I have PM'd him. Does anyone know another way I may be able to get a copy of this spreadsheet?

                        All of the experienced candle makers suddenly vanished from this forum a few months ago. It used to be a very vibrant group and anyone new would get loads of great advice but not now.
