I've decided to try this instead of mixing up a batch of 'knuckle pudding'. It's a lithium thickened EP oil marketed as cotton spindle grease. It's semi-solid at room temperature and pourable at about 130* F and clings very well. I figure it will work better than nothing or a big clump of hardened #2 stuck to the insides of the knuckles. Tractor Supply sells it locally.
