    Thanks Noz. I was gonna go out and buy some type of anti seize and discovered that I had a jar of choke tube lube. Thought it might be the same type stuff.

    I just use straight Balistol on my nipples. Haven't had a stuck one yet, and it's no added expense.

    Thanks Fingers. Got some Ballistol too. Great stuff. Good to know it works as well.

    Choke tube lube, anti seize and spark plug grease all work.

    Yep, it will work. No need to buy yet another grease.
    I put olive oil on my threads. Works fine. It doesn't take a lot of lubricant to keep the threads on cap and ball nipples from seizing, little more than an imp's breath.
