Thanks, Gary

I just mixed up some lube with lard as opposed to mutton tallow.

Since lard is less viscous than mutton tallow, it appears that the revised mix should be 1 part lard to 2 parts beeswax. That gives me about the right consistency. Of course this must be taken into account when calculating the cost of the lube.

These two mixes are pretty stiff.
