    I read or heard that WD 40 was developed when the Navy wanted a water displacement. Story goes that it is named as it is because it was perfected on the 40th try. It also claimed that it is fish oil. Cant recall where I got that. I have read that PB Blaster is actually a lil better. And that tests showed that Acetone mixed with automatic transmission fluid are better than that.

    I read it on the internet so it must be true? haha

    I used Acetone/ATF to free up an adjustable wrench I lost in a field last fall and found this spring. It took all summer but it works now.

    When I worked in a gun shop years ago we used to clean WD40 that had vanished on barrels etc off. I use RemOil instead. After reading that ad I might recommend WD40 for my friends with rusty tools.

    I've also heard/read that about this being the 40th attempt on developement of a water displacement. And it is that, I used to use it when working on old cars. When cleaning one up under the hood, sometimes if the engine was hot and you washed it with cold water the distributor cap would condense moisture inside and would not start until it sat long enough to dry out. I found you could pop the cap and spray the inside with WD40 and it would start right up.

    It is also very good for removing a lot of the stickers and the goo from them that get plastered on a lot of the things you buy nowadays.

    Now I do recall one mechanic who said he could spray a motor with water til it died, then spray the dist cap with WD 40 and it would restart. I had forgotten about that one. I think I heard it is edible, yuck!


    Judging by some posts I have to wonder what it is that I cant see in the picture of the label above. If there is a joke to be made I best refrain from doing so. I think I get it.
