Please stop telling me "That can't be done" while I'm doing it, it's just plain annoying.

ug, really? I forgot to post the ingredients...

ok,

beeswax

a GOOD 2cycle engine oil, preferably one with lo ash.

8oz of beeswax, 1 oz of oil

if it's too stiff, add more oil, if it's too soft, add more beeswax

Does it seem to be a "sticky" lube, one that stays in the grooves good for pan lubing?

I don't know, I don't pan lube so not familiar with the intricacies of it.

All you need is......love?

I've switched to Ben's Liquid Lube. Liquid Johnsons Paste Wax and Alox. Seems to work great and is uber easy to make.

If it uses Beeswax and motor oil why is it called "speed green"?
