Anyway, my ball mill is occupied so I decided to test it with Shimizus blue II, this has red gum and parlon in it, bound with alcohol.
Anyway, press it, remove it.. looking good. BUT, the inner walls of the crossette are stuck to the cruciform. This was a nightmare, a sticky, rubbery mess. Good thing alcohol cleaned it up.
Anyway, I now have 2 very weird comet things, nice for a test.
But I want functioning crossettes. Any tips on this would be very very helpful.
NOTE: I didnt have silicon lubricant, graphite powder or anything of the sort on hand. Please tell me if either of those will work. Or is it purely just the rubber star? Ill be making some D1 soon and hopefully that will break away better.
EDIT: for those looking for a nice cheap blue, I very much recommend this one, its a deep, amazing blue
