    Does anyone know where to get lithium stearate?
    We need somebody/something to keep the government (cops and bureaucrats too) HONEST (by non government oversight).

    Every "freedom" (latitude) given to government is a loophole in the rule of law. Every loophole in the rule of law is another hole in our freedom. When they even obey the law that is. Too often government seems to feel itself above the law.

    We forgot to take out the trash in 2012, but 2016 was a charm! YESSS!

    It's easy to make

    A professional Caster in Germany told me about it years before I learned it was called "Lithi-Bee" Since Adrian gave me his Lithi-bee preparation "destructions" I have always called it "Adrian's Goo"

    I selected it because it smokes far less than Alox-Beeswax and 2138 ALOX isnt around anymore.

    1 lb grease gun cartidge into a pot with 1 lb of Beeswax, brought slowly to 275 degrees with gentle stirring. It is a softer lube that requires no heat (the name describes it well)

    If I want it stiffer I add 1 lb paraffin

    I also used John Paul's SAECO green made of euqal weigths of STP, Paraffin and beeswax (needs a heater)

    Thanks Felix, I googled it, but just got the usual mess.

    I am very aware that this is a very old post

    Instead of Carnauba wax has anybody tried coconut oil/fat in there mix(50/50) to lower the melting point?.

    The main goal would be to put the boolits in a tray in the oven at 80-90C

    If this was asked before i apologize, i could not find the right topic on this.

    With best regards
