I bought some cheep copper memory coolers off eBay. See picture in last post. Not convinced they dissipate much heat, they seem to get quite hot, so may end up removing them.Really nice! I love the look of copper coolers…
I used 'used' four-stroke mower oil, which turned into a thick paste!!! On reflection I can see how a lighter lubricant would have been better. Thanks for the tip.When I have fairly thick material or blind holes such at in your standoffs, I use WD-40 as a lube. This helps cutting the threads and preventing the tap seizing. Also, you may need to tap the holes in stages, where you remove the tap and clear the hole of metal chips. I use compressed air and WD-40 for this.
