I've trained myself on expensive "sipping"
Drinks to use caution!

Another solvent we used back in the 70's was 1,1,1-Trichloroethane or Chlorothane. Stuff would clean anything organic, especially oils and grease. It would also clean you. Would take the oil right out of your skin leaving a white powder on you. Probably was one of the better things outlawed.

I remember that also. All that stuff was great, but our Uncle Sam decided it wasn't good for us to use it.

You used it " back in the 70"s" Maybe I am not dating myself as much as i have been accused of doing by some other forum member - not mentioning any names.

Used MEK in the 80's to clean black ink out of Videojet and Marsh inkjet industrial printers after the print heads dried up and got clogged. Hands turn white if you didn't wear rubber gloves. Then they itched for hours. NASTY stuff, but man it worked soooo well. MEK got outlawed, so then we used Acetone. Like that was any safer. LOL!

Has anybody seen the new stuff from Loctite? It's called freeze and release. It supposed to freeze the nut or bolt to -40f and in doing so it has penetrating oil in the spray and its supposed to wick it in during the freeze to loosen things up. I've been looking for it, I'm interested in trying it out.

I looked it on the Amazon site. There were 3 reviews - 1 good and 2 so and so.

Amazon is offering a 13.52 fl oz spray can for $9.99.

So much for PB Blaster being #1.
I have tried it, and must admit that it is nothing special.

Chemsearch has a product called Shield. I use it on injection mold inserts that have had water lines break and have rusted together. It seems to do quite well, as the tolerances on these parts are extremely tight. Nothing else I've tried seems to work as well.

Mabey banned in Texas but we buy it in 55 gal drums and if it runs out you can get it at Lowe's/ home depot. I run a acft maint facility, and kroll is the best

Careful

Careful, with this stuff. WD-40 was formulated to have a high flash point, low volatility, similar to safety solvent in parts washers. Acetone go BOOM pretty easily and can hurt yer liver ( I'd rather save my liver for beer processing).

MEK is even more volatile AND dangerous.

Just saying, if you use this concoction, please be careful, be well ventilated and wear an organic vapor respirator if necessary.
