75:25 mix of white beeswax and -*-original-*- Alox.

OLD coffee decanter was JUST big enough.  Mixed by weight.

Yup.  Alox 2138F   Alox 350 needs 6-7% microcrystal wax which the 2138F has.  I have a FEW pounds of if anyone needs it.

I ran out of 2138 years ago.i have some later alox (# I can't remember) that appears to be just like the current Lee liquid stuff.it works great for tumble lube.
I've just started making "Fryxell lube" that is 50/50 beeswax and staylube moly.its been a good replacement so far but I've yet to try it in various temps.

Any chance of this lube being on the venders table at the forthcoming Chinquapin match?

that seems to me to be the best disposition!
I'll have it there!  Both JSL and Alox 2138F.

Where in the world did you find ALOX 2138F?  That stuff is getting rare out there! 
I too would be interested in seeing it on our (growing) Vendors’ Row at the June event.

Years ago a friend of mine and I split a 5 gallon bucket of it.  That was the smallest quantity they would ship.
