paw, 45-45-10 is a mix of LLA-45% Johnson's paste wax-45% and 10% mineral spirits. The JPW is melted, then allowed to cook for ten minutes or so,(to drive off the solvents). I used an improvised double boiler, a large stainless steel bowl with a smaller one inside floating on the boiling water. Then add the LLA,45% . Let it cook too, then mineral spirits. I used the odorless variety. If it looks too thin, cook it a little longer.

The advantage is the lube drys quicker and hard, not sticky. It's meant to be a tumble lube. If it's at the right consistency, it needs to be warmed before use. Some stick it in the microwave, I just float it in hot water for a half hour or so.

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
