Dry moly lube for marking aluminum?

I did a search and found some past posts expressing disappointment in using dry moly lube for marking plain aluminum. Has anyone tried this with success? Ideas for starting settings?

I haven’t yet. You could always try mustard. :smiley:

I did try this with some settings inspiration from other posts.

Dry moly application: 3 coats
Power: Full (Pro)
Speed: 100
Passes: trials at 1 and 3 passes

Result: Failure, just a couple of specks marked.

In another forum I saw someone note success with Thermark improved the THINNER the coat they used. Next time I’ll try 1 coat and see what happens.
