For this lube to flow properly, does it have to be 120 degrees or does the heater base have to be 120 degrees?  The lube seems to be an insulator, and I can't get it above 117 degrees with my Midway heater, even though its surface goes up to 160.  At this temperature the lube squeezes out of the die in a long ribbon, and seems  too soft.

Matt,

The flow temperature of the lube is right about 120 degrees.   The lubrisizer will be considerably cooler than this to effectively use the lube.  The ambient room temperature where you are working will play a large factor in how high you will need to turn your lubricator heater.  Best results are obtained when the lube is just soft enough to flow through your sizing equipment smoothly.

This should help in your frustration level!

God Bless,

Marshall
