white lithium grease

I watched a you tube video of a guy glass bedding a rifle this evening. He used white lithium grease as the release agent. He also use Devcon steel putty. I am planning to use Marine Tex on my Rem 700 and was wondering if the white lithium grease would work for my release agent or should I stick with the paste floor wax?

    Stick with what you know works!

    It reduces the ol' pucker factor on that first attempt to break it free.;)

    My minwax paste has never failed.

    I've been tempted to try it because it's available in a spray can. Could get in corners, crevices easy, but like Roy, am satisfied with the wax.

    My guess is that it would work.

    I've been using Kiwi neutral shoe polish after watching Richard Franklins pillar-bedding video and and perfectly satisfied with that. I'm sure it's about the same as the paste waxes but it is another alternative that does work well. I apply liberally with fingers and q-tips, then let it dry a few minutes and buff it off with a paper towel. It's worked great so far and much better than the Brownell's agents I've used in the past. Oh, and I'm using it with Devcon steel putty.

    If you want a nicer surface finish in the resin, skip the floor wax/paste wax and go with a commercial mold release agent in an aerosol can. You won't have "swirlys" with the rattle can.

    Good luck.

    Is there a specific brand of commercial mold release agent I should be looking for?
