The BEST penetrating oil EVER ... & you can make it!

... just trying to breathe some life into this board on these forums ...

FYI, here's the test results from the April/May 2007 edition of Machinist's Workshop. They did a test of penetrating oils or fluids where they measured the force (with a calibrated torque wrench) required to loosen rusty test devices. The lower the number of pounds the better.

Penetrating oil ... - ... Average load (force required to break)

None ................ 516 pounds
WD-40 .............. 238 pounds
PB Blaster ......... 214 pounds
Liquid Wrench ... 127 pounds
Kano Kroil ........ 106 pounds
50:50 mix of ATF-Acetone ... only 53 pounds of force needed!

(where ATF = Auto Transmission Fluid ... for the acronym challenged )

Now THAT is a DIY mix that anyone of us should be able to make ! Well, less maybe 'Go Fish' ...
