Default Ran out of Penatrating Oil

My quart can of penetrating oil is empty. I think Stick recommends acetone and ATF Dextron at 1:1.

I guess this is still the best for penetrating oil?

If Stick says it's good it is good.

He wasn't the only one that has tried it if I remember the responses correctly. It seems to me several people said that it works as well as anything they've tried.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I think the mix is sold commercially as Red Gun oil

Learning is an exciting adventure

Ha! My mind went to Penetral. Oh that would work so well (not!) Of course, Penetrol hardens, which just might not be a good thing, when trying to loosen stuff.

I look forward to hearing more on this hack.

Well I am of the opinion that this is the very best. Of coarse you have to try it to find out.
