    Rapine Liquid Graphite Mould Release

    Ray did not have any out when he was at the Nationals.

    Does he still have it or is there someone else supplying it?

    By the way,

    Has anyone else noted that iron/steel mould surfaces treated with Ray's mould release does NOT seem to rust?

    i think all he did was mix powdered graphite and alcohol to make up his mould release. hp

    i have just started using frankford arms mould release and as much as i liked rapines version this one in my opinion is much better. it is an aerosole and lasts much longer and also keeps the mould from rusting.

    Matt,

    Is it like a waxy white spray?

    Had a supplier of a really great mould release that fit that description and it was an aerosol. They went out of business -- Bill Ferguson "Antimony Man" has soemthing like it but only wants to sell it in case lots!

    I am now using the Frankford Arsenal drop out aerosol. It is the same black graphite as Rapine's but does seem to last longer and covers the mould with an even spray. I bought it from the sutler next to Jerry Stone's shop at Fort Shenandoah.I paid $12 a can. Frankford Arsenal has an online site where it sells for $9.99 but don't know what they charge for shipping

    I think the sutler is Rebel Trader that carries the Frankford Arsenal mould release. I paid $12 for a can at the Spring National. She shows up to most regional shoots at the Fort and always the Nationals. She is right next to Jerry Stone's shop.
