Pan Lubing

Postby doranj » Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:43 pm

Im about lazy or I could not find a thread on Pan lubing. Anyone have a favorite recipe they would like to share. My first attempt was equal parts parafin, vaseline & tble spoon stp oil treat with a crayon, turned out pink. Anywho, what do you all do? Reason I ask, is I read forums where people say they get no leading. I get some, but never not none. I must be doing something wrong. I try to stay a 1000ths over diameter, but maybe Im measuring wrong. I still have alot to learn in the smelting dept, but i enjoy it.
Thanks

What is the advantage of staining over lubing?

Several advantages:
Doesn't cost anymore than traditional lube
Virtually eliminates Leading (covers ALL of the bearing surface)
Totally eliminates the "messy gunk" involved in Lubing
Dies and Press remain clean, free of the "gunk"
Remarkable reduction in "smoke" when fired
And they are TOTALLY pretty!
