    Please tell what you are using for coolant in your shotmaker and and at what temperature you make your best shot.

    Thanks, Len

    I use brake fluid Dot3, I find that the colder the better. Lately we have been having 90 degree weather. So my ambient temp before I start is 90, once I get a 100 degrees (because of the size of my tank) I have to stop or my shot turns to %&#@

    I was using brake fluid, and i foun the same thing once I got to about a 100, my shot looked like popcorn, then my pump would turn off, and all of a sudden i had a mess, lead dripping, but no coolant pumping!!

    I read a lot threds about 125 150 degrees and just wonder if i was doing something wrong.

    I am using crop oil now, and am finding the same thing.
