So this may be a non-traditional mold I'm referencing as it's not for bullets, but rather fishing sinkers/split shot.  I order it new off of ebay.  It's a lil mac mold and it looks to be somewhat aged, though new/unused.  Problem is, when I took it out of the packaging, it was seized in place and won't close.  I contacted the seller and he said since I opened it he can't take it back.  I can take him stonewalling me up with ebay, but I wanted to give it a fair shot to loosen this up.  My concern is, if it's like this now...even if I can work a lubricant in there, isn't going to get even worse when it heats/cools?

Again, any thoughts on loosening this hinged up would be appreciated.

Let it sit awhile and keep working on it.

Soak with Kroil.  That stuff is amazing.
