I’ve heard people say lithium based and I’ve heard calcium based greases when making lube. What about polyeurea based grease?
Trust you on the heat thing? Let me guess, it catches fire?which isn't overly a bad thing.
I really tried for thixotropic [controlled of course] with the moly lube.
i tried with several others but they went to goose poop at certain ambient temperatures as soon as you put them under pressure.
polyglycol looks good too [is good actually] but you have to manually mix it with other waxes and you have to watch the temps you heat it to.
