    I remember that thread. Wasnt the grit of the peanuts speculated as bad for accuracy? I recall someone tried dry lubricants suspended in wax base and it didn't work too well. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    Hmm mix that with candela wax and we might be on to a good black powder lube. Candella wax is a bee wax alternative that has similar properties to keep oil and water mixed. Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk

    Aint gonna hurt a thing. Keep it lubed and it will last a long time. I also recommend getting a tube of antiseize for the bottom of the sprue plate. It doesnt migrate as bad and last longer. It protects the top of the block better in my opinion....

    Perfectly fine. I wouldn't even try and fix it.. Its a type of galling. The hot blocks wear faster. Lube the bottom of the sprue plate with antiseize will really help get that under control and slow it down. 2 cycle engine oil works also. Just...

    Do search for copper sheet, copper foil or copper whether sheeting. Just find the gauge to suite your needs. I would try and find it local at hardware stores or craft stores before ordering off amazon Sent from my SM-N970U using Tapatalk
