    I disagree on what you are saying about WD-40. It works great on a fishing hook. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    QUOTE] Ken, A sincere question. What do you mean by "lube them properly"? To me, wd-40 would be proper... :blush: Use something other than wd-40? Thanks,[/QUOTE]

    Ken, the trouble with WD-40 is that it does not dry. Therefore it will collect dirt and cause you more problems. Never, never use WD-40 on electrical parts.

    Like mentions above, use a spray on dry lubricant with silicon or the wax, which probably has silicon in it. :approve:

    Like hollis mention. WD-40 is ok for, example,breaking loose a nut from a bolt but clean the bolt, apply a dry lubricant and then replace the nut.

    Triple E,
    Sorry but again the WD means Water Dispersing. It is the 40th formula that the inventor tried. It is actually good to use with elec. items as it disperses water.

    Now, I would not spray it into a "HOT" fixture but it is good at getting rid of the water.

    I have used it to disperse water in an old distributor cap on one my older cars. I was mud/water riding and splashed water up on the motor and it drowned out the motor. I put WD 40 in the cap , wiped it out and I was on my way again. Steve since I don't fish I would not that it is good for fishing. Does the fish like the smell or the taste :laugh: :laugh: ;) :approve:

    Try a can of micro mist guys. You'll never buy WD40 again.

    No Ken I amnot wrong. You will not find an electrical or instrumentation shop using WD-40, period. If you want to use a "water dispersing" use CRC. I have never disagreedwith youbefore but on this one I must, :)

    My first day on the job in the power plant I was told that WD stood for "What Dummie". ;)

    "The long-term active ingredient is a non-volatile, viscous oil which remains on the surface, providing lubrication and protection from moisture. This is diluted with a volatile hydrocarbon to give a low viscosity fluid which can be sprayed and thus penetrate crevices. The volatile hydrocarbon then evaporates, leaving the oil behind."

    Oil is conductive, flammable and collects dirt. No not use on electrical components. I am not saying that it does not disperse water I am saying do not use on electrical components.

    Hollis, don't know why it works good for fishing. But the worms do float better. :laugh: :laugh:
