Thumbs up Just thought i'd share



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked up a brownells steel bedding kit at a yard sale for .50 cents a while back, it looked new except for oil on and in the box. I finaly got around to using it on my 10/22T, when I opened the release agent I found out why the box was oily- it appears that the release agent all leaked out. So I decided to go way out on a limb and try some RCBS case lube 2 that I had laying around the bench as a substute. Well I'm happy to report that the stuff works better than anything I'e tried in the past, and works at least as good if not better than the release that comes with the kits. Has anyone else tried this stuff before as a release agent? Just thought i'd share the experience with you all, maybe it could be a help to someone.

I haven't tried it, but I have some laying around. Definitely a handy tip to know! I had an acraglas gel kit that the release agent had dried out in... there was a tiny little crack in the top. It turned into a kind of rubbery blob.

p.s. I used the Miles Gilbert Bedrock kit last night on a new HM2 I am building. It comes very complete, great instruction book and first class components. As usual, I mixed more than I needed (I don't know WHY I do that!), but the release agent is great! I got it bedded and just took it apart a few minutes ago. Faaaaaaaaaaantastic.

I highly recommend the kit to anyone who has not done one before because the microballons (actually looks like a fine, fine powder) allow you to control the viscosity (I like it almost like peanut butter so it stays where I put it) and the directions are very well thought out, designed, illustrated and outlined.

+1 for Bedrock! Micro ballons are great (whatever they are). I also like being able to thicken the compound.

IMHO I think the instruction book is worth the price of the kit.

Use Marine Tex and you will not have to worry about getting the right consistency. BTW, I use regular car wax as a release agent and haven't "stuck" one in close to 40 years. Regards...g
