Study of Penetrating Oils

A pretty interesting look at different penetrating oils for busting loose rusted stuff.

Not safe for work/maiden aunts/preachers/children/faint of heart.

I have spent hours on his videos.

Gotta be "Best of Canadian".

Ain't sure, but . . . looked like the test procedure involved only short-term marination (brief "soak" time).

Silly me, but . . . I've THOUGHT I had good results with PB Blaster; AFTER a considerable immersion time. Don't know where I got the idea (Instructions?), but . . . I somehow thought a significant time interval necessary for the chemical catalytic action effectively occurring.

Alas, my belief system is destroyed; PB Blaster is now proven no good whatsoever.

Good thing I've got my IMPACT DRIVER and 7-amp IMPACT WRENCH, if there's no, "Better living through chemistry!"

DISCLAIMER: No financial interest in PB Blaster.
