    Does NOE still ship the lube with their moulds? I don't remember getting any lube with my last mould.

    The ester oil smells bad, though, when put on a a hot mould. I'll stick with my Bullplate. Good thing I traded for 20 bottles of it a few years ago.

    It's an option like the top punch. I think it's $5 for the lube and allen wrenches.

    It seems to come regardless most of the time, maybe I'm just lucky?

    I save the bottles of synthetic two stroke oil that I use in my chain saw, Stihl Combi-tool, and Ice Auger. The little bit that drains from the bottle after mixing fuel lasts for years if you don't spill it. I keep some Q-tips near the casting area. I dip the Q-tip in the oil and wipe most of it back into the bottle. The tiniest amount does the job. Synthetic two stroke oil seems to work just like the Bull Plate lube I first bought years ago.

    Send me your address and I'll send you a bottle of the stuff that Miha includes with his molds. I've got a drawer full.

    Was able to go to the Bull Shop website and used the email button told him wanted some of the lube and he could either tell me how to order or simply ship and invoice me on Pay Pal.
    The response was original is $4 per Bottle the New with the micro moly or what ever is $5 asked what I wanted responded 2 of the new he sent message $10 for goods $5 for shipping and the email address to use to pay with pay pal pretty easy game actually much easier than finding an envelop stamp and $10 and $5 bill to mail him

    I have made a clone of Speed green.

    Let me start by saying, I have used the real Speed green bought from Bullshop and while it works well during shooting, I didn't like it's stickiness and messiness during the lubsizing process as well as in the loading ammo process. I was told that a bit of Lanolin and JPW would reduce stickiness, so I added those to my clone recipe.

    I used a amsoil product, that is PAO based, I do not know if Bullplate is PAO based or not?
    But I learned that a PAO based oil is more slippery than oils that are not PAO based, and to avoid "flyers", you need to be careful not to use too much of a PAO based oil. I ended up using a lower percentage (20%) of amsoil in my clone recipe, than what Bullshop specifies for his oil in Speed green. I found the percentage I used, by trial and error.

    This link should bring you to my post (Post #93)
    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...=1#post1191534

    Lastly, I will add that I much prefer SL68B than Speed green or my clone recipe.
