don,t you just love, it was soft in the summer & and too stiff in the winter?I used Crisco back in the dark ages (my hair was dark). It was too soft and runny in Missouri summers and too stiff in the winter. While it does work if you can put up with the mess, the mixes using bee's wax make for a better lube.
is that like JERRY CURL, or DIXIE PEACH, for your DOO?? it Shure makes a mess on toe pillow case, iffen you don't use your DOO RAG at night.Hey, go for the good stuff.
Premixed, convenient packaging, slick as it gets and scented to prevent deer from being able to detect human odor.
OK, OK, only kidding. I tried it out as an adjunct in beeswax based bullet lubes and it actually has worked well in some applications including percussion revolvers. Despite the all pervasive scent.
So try out whatever you have 'cause it might just work. I've still got the better part of a gallon bucket of industrial lanolin in the lube making supplies so I tend to include some when building a batch. Shopping around now for some affordable raw beeswax in Indiana.
Wait until wife is away and do outside.The biggest thing to remember is that both oil and wax are flammable, you do not want either to reach its smoke point when heating or you could have one hell of a fire on your hands.
I melt my lube outside for safety and mess control just in case. Don't use one of your good cooking pans.
that is why your hair was BLACK, the CRISCO was to blame!! start using it again, WHO KNOWS? THE SHADOW KNOWS!I used Crisco back in the dark ages (my hair was dark). It was too soft and runny in Missouri summers and too stiff in the winter. While it does work if you can put up with the mess, the mixes using bee's wax make for a better lube.
DARK, is thought to be black. if you said back when it was red well? doesn't in the end, hair most always turns to snow colored. LOL!!Actually my hair was dark red, but that's not really relevant. I did use Crisco as a lubricant over the ball in my cap and ball revolver a long time ago. I enjoyed shooting the revolver, but the Crisco splatter was very messy.
