Re: Galled brass
Do you mean the insides of necks are galling?
Are the necks a tight fit?
Are the necks and mandrels clean and smooth?
Are you taking alot off with each turn?
Also, I wouldn't use a dry film lubricant, and I've never found die 'wax' to work well for anything really.
I've used Mobil1 without issue, and let the turner body rest in a shallow bowl of alcohol for a minute between cases(for cooling). You must keep it all clean, and re-lube the turning mandrel everytime.
If you've galled your turning mandrel, you might put in an order for another. Maybe spring for the carbide option.
