    I put my 8 lbs container in a 5 gallon bucket and spin it on my Thumbler for 20 minutes.

    You can use the dryer, but don't tell the wife.

    I'm not married any more.

    I do not put the tubb dust into my 8 pound container. -- I move 1 pound of the powder to a separate container and mix the powder and tubb dust together in there.

    Thanks

    Will it stick to ball powder? Or is it for extruded powder only?

    It will stick to anything and everything ... including drop tubes, powder dispensers and your lungs.

    The one pound containers that I use are "Nalgene HDPE Wide Mouth Round Containers" and can be purchased from amazon for around $4.50 apiece. I purchased one for every type of powder that I use.

    I believe that it does work - its just messy and I am not sure about the safety of the powder. It gets everywhere ..

    I didn’t get the memo. I have my own dust, but what is Tubb’s Dust?

    It's a copper Eliminator...my guess is tin dioxide or bismuth.
    Ends up $1.60 per pound ( shipped and tax).

    Do those bottles have a positive seal (airtight), like paper or rubber gasket? It says not recommended for liquid storage.
