    Re: Which lubricant do you prefer?

    I protect my tools with a couple layers of rust to protect the metal underneath.
    Ok, seriously, I have no particular preference and tend to use whatever is handy or what it better suited to what I need. WD-40, Tri-Flow, Boeshield, and and assortment of greases, whatever is best for what I need.

        For me it would depend on the use. Something I do use a good bit of and for many things is GIBBS which comes in a pressurized squirt (not spray) can. It's a bit high in cost, but has been a big help. It's my #1 Loosen-Er-Upper anymore.

          I use tri-flow this is a lubricant with Teflon this stuff loosens rusted hardware, frees sticky mechanisms, washes away dirt and contaminants.
          I found this stuff at ace hardware
          I also use slip sliding compound..this is great on the table saw
          This found at woodworker's supply#909-314
          this stuff is also great to lubricate dresser drawer wood slides.
          it's non-toxic, inhibits rust and corrosion, attracts less dust.
          I use wd-40 to remove glued labels

            Hey I know... what's slicker than --- pupshit!

            Dura-Lube in a spray can is something that works quite well on anything squeeky

            Most people don't realize that WD40 is a solvent , it will free up sticky parts but it's no good as a lube... Once upon a time I learned the hard way as I was using it on the chain of my mountain bike, I wore that sucker out quick (tweren't a cheap chain neither )

              Best thing for bicycle chains is to cook them in hot wax.

                Yep, found this out after a little research that time
                (same research that informed me that WD40 is a solvent)

                The melted wax seeps into every little crevice between the rollers etc.
                The great thing about the wax is that no dirt will stick to it.
                It's also nice to work on yer bike and not wind up with black greasy hands

                  You can't go wrong with WD40. Plus you can find it just about anywhere you go.

                      i've not found any lubricant that works in cold, dry climates.

                      we strip our firearms and handtools of all grease and oils.

                      it's the only way they'll work.

                          Military uses stuff called LAW-lubricating artic weather. Never used it but they say it works.
