I just finished pre-lubing about 250 patches of various thicknesses using Frontiers' Anti-Rust & Patch Lube.  I melted some lube in the microwave.  I dipped a patch in the lube and stack it on two dry patches.  I alternated the patches sandwiching "one wet patch and then two dry patches"   Once I went through the stack of 100 I placed them in a sandwich bag, put them in my wood working vice and squeezed them real tight.  No lube dripped from the stack during the squeezing process.  All the patches came out looking the same, .010, .015, .020.  Below is a stack of 100, .015 patches.

Next day I checked out the patches (see below).  I look at every one and they are all identical, evenly lubed.  Worked out great!
