I found the liquid at for about $3
less than MSC Direct and their shipping is about $2 less than MSCDirect.

It looks like this stuff is great for machining too.  I'm getting a
couple of bottles of the liquid, one for the modeling table downstairs
and one for the shop.  At $7.75 a bottle, you can't beat it.

Several years ago I needed some more Boelube and could not find it on

reasonable in price (about $12 and the stick was about $4). I think I
like the liquid better than the stick. Which reminds me, I need to
order some more.

I just did a quick search for the stuff and found it at  MSC Direct.
They have a better price point and always have really fast delivery times!

This is an industrial product so it may no longer be available in

Ask Joe Melhorn who recently posted about drill speed.  In the

delicate light

pretty high
speed.  Nothing fell off.

Can't comment on the best route for the wiring.
