Penetrating Fluids

I have been introduced to a new penetrating fluid that seems to have an advantage over others.

The name is "kroil" it is made by Kano laboratories, who also have a vast selection of other products.

Has anyone here had any experience with kroil? I have started tearing down the bike I just got and have been using it with success.

It is a bit pricey but I think it has been worth it.

Yes it is good but not easy to find all the time.
PB Blaster also works good and easer to find but Kroil is good.

If you happen to be near a Tacome screw store, they sell the Kroil.
I was told that after an initial use that if the fastener doesn't come loose in 15 minutes to hit it with another shot, and wait another 15 minutes.
If it don't come loose, he said it isn't going to come out.
It's $20.00 a can here, I'm going to get a can to use on my Bronco II exhaust manifold this weekend to see if it will loosen a stuck bolt. I will post pics and how well it works.

Yes, I have been using it in gunsmithing and handloading for years, I have also recommended it here on the forum, great stuff but not new...
I also recommend WD-40 as a hand cleaner...lol...

I had actually heard that it wasn't sold in any stores, I guess just not around here.

I think it was created in the 1920's sometime. I like the idea of WD-40 as a hand cleaner, it does liquify grease well.

A lot of folks use WD-40 on guns, it will gel & solidify and mess up the action, especially on autoloaders and pump actions, so it has another popular name with some gun owners "Gunsmith's Friend"..lol...
Very good as a handcleaner to remove grease & oil, even some paints and other stuff, also claimed to be good for arthritis...

spray some on a spinnerbait and go bass fishing and see what happens! I dont reccomend this as it is not very eco-friendly though but it works. I love the way w-d smells!
