Today's HATE Poast

 


When I was a kid living at home - if Pop saw our motorcycles the old bastid unfailingly hit the chains with a squirt of WD40. May God rot his balls - the next day our chains would be brown and flash rusted. I don't get it: Dad was a master mechanic that worked on everything from jet engines on down and he was hell on wheels in the mechanical arts. In his day he woulda given guys like Phil and STxAR a run for their money. I wonder if Pop was simply getting back at us for constantly siphoning his gas and stealing his tools?  It's the only thing that makes sense to explain his retarded behaviour. 

WD40 is a marginal solvent. It is a dismal lubricant, and a HORRIBLE protectant. If you have rusty nuts (and what old stubfart doesn't) - I like kroil for that or stubborn carbon deposits. If ya gotta use WD40, it displaces moisture - it doesn't remove it. Wipe your stuff down after using it, and look into specialized lubricant/protectant oils. This stuff is the jack-of-all-trades and when ya get right down to it... it does none of them very well. 

I better go lie down. I got triggered off of AC's poast where he noted bike chains in passing.... and it set me right off and now I'm literally shaking with RAGE!!! I need a Safe Place!!!

Have a great Tuesday you guys and thanks for stopping in.

  1. Since I played around so much in my youth with needless/useless endeavors I did discover that WD40 is good for browning bare metal. Not saying it would be good for a bike chain as I really don't know but I used to use it directly on rusted metal and then lightly use sandpaper. It would let the brown rust eat into the metal and then stabilize it against rust for years. I used it on many a piece of armor for mock fighting with sticks and such.

  4. Wow, you're so triggered, you lost a day! Sounds like you need an adult beverage. Maybe two. Tree Mike

  5. WD40 works absolutely wonderfully as cutting lube when you are drilling or reaming heavy truck frames. Just about doubles your cutting speed without turning the bit faster, reduces chipping and dulling on tapered reamers, and prevents the bit from snagging and the handle of the drill spinning around and slapping you in the nuts!

  7. I use it as cutting lube for aluminum. kerosene works, too. I like the smell. Justice Brothers came out with JB80, probably twice as good as WD40!! But for penetrating oil, I use a mixture of acetone and transmission fluid. Seems to work really well. Not sure if windmills and solar cells make acetone. I'll be looking for something else one day... And I doubt I could be a patch on your dad's sock. I'm just too dumb to quit. Cool your jets and have a great evening.

  9. Mouse Milk penetrating oil. Used for decades in the aircraft industry. WD40 has lots of uses. Lubrication is not one of them.

  11. There are people who put it on their guns!
    Mini-bikes are making a comeback and a buddy was downright mean as his stepdaughter wiped out trying to ride one.
    I reeled in the meanness for a second and didn't laugh.
    Maybe Brandon's handlers will switch over to metric just for the laughs.
    Don't call it a gallon, that is a region in Fwance. (sarc)

  12. WD40 (aka panther piss around the farm) is good for arthritic knees, just spray on and rub in, works wonders.

  13. The underground miners at the mine I work at spray WD-40 onto their workboots to prevent moisture from seeping into the boots.

  14. In the outboard repair circles we get engines with bad wiring from the owner spraying that garbage on the engine to keep it from corroding. Over a few years it will make the insulation soft , swell up & break off. Especially the old Mercury outboards.

  15. I had a locksmith friend who loved WD-40. People would use it on their locks, and after a while it would get gummy and they would have to hire him to free them up. Got more business that way. He recommended TriFlow if you wanted to lube them the right way.

  16. 40 Years as a Jet Mechanic here, and Kroil is the ONLY Penetrant that works well on Hardware that is used on the Hot Sections of Turbine Engines. Piston Engine Mechanics use Mouse Milk, also good for seriously Rusted Hardware.
    For "Corrosion Preventative" materials, there is the old "MIL-C-17163" Specification, usually LPS 1, 2, or 3, corresponding to the mil A, B, C, Grades, or Viscosity. Grade D is like Gear Oil, Grade E is a Grease, and what is called "Cosmoline" is that stuff, that you Heat and Brush On. Anyone planning for long-term storage of Weapons needs to use 16173D and the appropriate Treated Wrapping Paper.

    There are a couple of Newer Mil-Specs for Corrosion Preventatives, a product called ACF-50 is a Very Good, lighter-viscosity Oil, that is Excellent for coating infrequently-used Tools in Southern (Swamp-level) Humidity.

    And yeah, WD is rather Useless other than for Cutting Oil, in non-Severe uses.

  17. I am making $92/hour telecommuting. I never imagined that it was honest to goodness yet my closest companion is earning $21 thousand a month by working on the connection, that was truly astounding for me, she prescribed me to attempt it simply.

  18. I use WD40 to free up sticky mechanisms and burnt in screws. That's it. That's what it was made to do. It was NOT made to be a lubricant!

    I have all kinds of lubricants and protectants on the shelf in the barn. This is good for this, and that is good for that. Sometimes I need graphite. Sometimes I need Teflon. Funny though, how many times I reach for one of the several cans of 3in1 oil I have lying around. Sometimes the simple choice is the best choice! I find full cans of that stuff, Singer sewing machine oil, and gun oil at yard and estate sales for pennies! It's all the same stuff in different cans.

  19. Learned the long term effects of WD-40 the hard way. When I was much younger, a .22 Magnum which had a coat of this applied to bolt and left in gun safe became nearly completely stuck. Damn stuff became like glue - what a mess ! Bolt was soaked in kerosene and 'real gun oil' was applied. Much better results.
