    What do you use for lubricant on you resizer, and how often do you apply it?

    Anti-seize by permatex. You can buy it in an automotive store. About once a month or when it starts to stick.

    Every so often depending how much you reload You'll have to remove the collet completely and clean it and re-install it. No big deal to it, just follow the book. Once and awhile a piece of shot will get in a finger and play with you, but after you take it out once and re-install it you'll be an expert.

    When you let up on the handle and the outer ring sticks it is time to re-lube the collet. You can lube it without disassembling it by putting the anti-seize on the collet with a toothpick.

    I am a pipefitter and I use "never seize" that we use on high pressure steam lines! It works great and won't dry out. PJ

    To all who said Anti-sieze, you are correct. To those of you who didn't, WRONG. Since MEC is based here in Wisconsin, I see those guys at our state shoot every year. I know them pretty well and bs with them a lot. They say to use anti-sieze and nothing else. The only difference between the regular kind and the MEC brand is the price.
