Bull Plate Sprue Lube
« on: March 30, 2012, 11:50:59 PM »
I'm using a six cavity lee mold. Is the lube meant for all the same places as regular lube? Pins and screw heads etc? Or is there some special technique to it. I've only used NRA bullet lube to this point.
Thanks

Bullshop's instructions for Bull Plate lube:

Quote
Instructions for use of Bull Plate Lube
Bring mould up to casting temperature and fill cavities with alloy.
Be sure to have complete base fill out to avoid getting Bull Plate Lube in the cavities.
Cut the sprue and keep blocks together with boolits in cavities.
Lightly dampen a Q-tip with Bull Plate Lube and spread a light film of lube on the mould block top surface and bottom of sprue plate.
With a clean Q-tip wipe away any excess lube from both surfaces. Only a very small amount is needed.
Also apply to alignment pins and hinge points.
New or very clean mould may require more than one treatment. Reapply at the first sign of any drag on opening or closing sprue plate.
Repeat procedure at the beginning of each casting session.

Yea.  It won't do you much good, though...

...if you wanted any information.

If you need information about Bull Shop products, your best bet is to dig around the "Vendor Sponsor" section of the Castboolits forums. (castboolits.gunloads.com)

Bull Plate is an excellent product.  2 Cycle oil has been working almost as well, applied just like the Bull Plate.

Just finished casting with bull plate, holy cow. This stuff is amazing. Sprue plate opens so easily now. Glad I bought two bottles, they'll probably last a decade. Thanks for the information on application.

I use this,if it's not the same stuff it sure works the same.  If I put a sample of Bull Shop and Amsoil Saber in identical bottles you can't tell which is which.  I just picked up a 1-Quart bottle.
