But, I'll settle for ANY way that works, OK.)
The easiest way to lube your patches or patching material, (Strips).
If I'm using spit patches, I spray on a solution, like maybe some water with some detergent/soap, and that works fine, for the short haul.
When I put on something like lard, or bear grease, or stuff like that I heat it first, and it soaks into the patching material, but it's really too thick. Then I hafta try and squeeze it/ring it out. I have taken a strip that was lubed/greased, and put another untreated one with it and rolled them up together, then squeezed them so the excess in the one soaks into the other one.
Anyway, I like lubed patches but I wish I hadda a BETTER WAY, to get the lube on them.
Every time I've asked this question before, not on an Internet Forum, but just people I know, I've not gotten an answer. I'm thinkin, maybe, no-one likes to answer this question, and from all that I know now, I can understand why.
I just bought TWO YARDS, of that blue and white Ticking Material. I got some lubbin to do. Help me out here.
Any Takers on this?
