    Ben. Just so you can get a chuckle today here is my question. Have you broken your Red formula ingredients down into oz`s and lbs. for people like me that have a hard time doing percentages of a additive?Robert

    Ben, Have you ever tried substituting the STP with the Lucas "Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer" oil treatment? As a mechanic for many a year I used both and I personally think the Lucas has better lube properties then STP. I do believe it's a better high pressure lube, slicker and stickier, wouldn't be surprised to learn they use it in the Red N' Tacky, that too is great stuff! Lucas also makes a great gun oil, it's the "original oil" thicker, sticker and also red. One of the things I find it works well for is storage, it holds in the bore well. They have a lot of firearm lubes and cleaners, good stuff.

    Oh yeah, one other product I love. I don't think you can find a better injector cleaner then the Lucas. I should buy stock or get kick backs LoL. Seriously they make some fine products, I've used a lot of brands over the 25 years to twisting wrenches, Lucas brand is in my garage and on my gun bench.
    Be careful what you wish for!

    I'm fixing to try this tomorrow... wish me luck!!

    BTW, where do you guys get your beeswax and what does it cost? I'm a beekeeper and I have been stacking wax in the shop so maybe it's time to put some on the trader.

    Well had a good day today...didn't have to travel the 100 km round trip to get the products I needed to give Ben's Red a try. I went to the local Lordco store and was pleasantly surprised to find Lucas Red and Tacky #2 for half the price of another major store. Got it for $4 a tube...then went back to get more today and found it is 16 ounce tubs that will make it easier to remove from the container than a grease gun tube. $5 for the tub. Once I get rid of two feet of snow in the yard out comes the hot plate and old pots. Here's a pic of the product . Pic shamefully stolen from the net.
