    Anyone use Carnauba Blue in a Star?

    Love the lube and have a Star on the way..They say to heat needed but wondering if anyone has used Blue in the star at all. I like the firmness of it and not being sticky.

    Thanks Gents

    I found it needs a little heat if under 75 degrees

    Agree with adam20, needed just a touch of heat from a hair dryer to get running, above 75 or so no trouble at all, run blue in two Stars and a Saeco sizer.

    I need to try again I have no way to measure the temp of my star. Where do you measure the heat? I used a IR heat measuring gun and its lot cooler at the top then the bottom. I may not be letting it warm up long enough either. Thanks for the info

    I don't check the temp in the star, just put a little heat to it to getting it going and it keeps working.

    I have not tried the Blue yet but want to try it. Might even try mixing it with my BAC to get rid of it if I like the Blue. I drilled a hole under the Star sizer and have a night lite bulb mounted under it. Adds just a touch of heat.
