Hello everyone,

I need to find the name of a dry type lube for the MEC sizing collet. I know it has been posted before but, like a dope, I never wrote it down. I'm trying to get away from Never-Seize and the alike lubricants! Can anyone out there help me?

Good luck to all that are at the Grand and thanks for the help.

Frankly, tools like sliding collets don't take well to dry lubricants.

I use Sta-Lube Synthetic Disc Brake Grease.

If you want something without color, try Tri-Flow grease.

The closest thing to a dry lube I know of that might be anywhere suitable is a product called Moly-Slide from NECO... 60% molybdenum disulfide in a proprietary grease carrier, no graphite. But at $8/oz. I'll use cheaper alternatives.

Before I started with the Sta-Lube, I devised a pretty good grease by lubing a cleaned collet with Copaslip copper-base anti-seize, operating it a few times and them lubing over the anti-seize with Tri-Flow so the two mixed in use. It worked really well until my Tri-Flow supplier stopped carrying the stuff.

I used Hornady Gun cleaner and dri lube. I sprayed it down every time I reloaded and it never failed me. I would load 8-10 boxes each time I loaded. I know it cleans and lubes for that long. I think keeping the dirt and grit flushed out is probably as important as the lube quality. Your results might vary, good Luck
