Penetrants Lubricants

PB Blaster compared to the rest.

photo by Matt Wright, 2008
There are lots of penetrants (lubricants designed to help loosen corroded or rusty connections) out there, and all make big claims when it comes to getting things apart. Is there any difference between any of them? There are lots out there -- PB Blaster, WD-40, Liquid Wrench, Goeey Booey -- but are they all the same or do any stand out?

Why PB Blaster?

Why PB Blaster, you ask? Heck, we have no idea. Do I look like a chemist? Whatever's in it, PB Blaster can really get the job done. We've used lots of juices to try to get things loose, and nothing seems to measure up to PB. It works better and faster, and longer, than the other stuff we've had around. Soak a rusty connection and let the juice do the work. PB Blaster will eat deep into the rust and corrosion to help free the nut or bolt. To really rock it, combine PB with a blast of heat from a small torch and you're sure to have things freed up quick.

Lubricants & adhesives, Member timemouse

I have used the lubricants mentioned & found them fine, unfortunately often need patience to give product time to work. I also wanted to recommend a fantastic adhesive I found in UK 99p shop. This is Bostik Edge glue stick, comes in a Toblerone triangular shaped plastic tube & boy does it stick. I used it to stick a chrome tail pipe on the back box of my car, with no other support. Its been on there 3 months. Any repairs need ing adhesive strength then use this, they also do an epoxy putty which is great for filling small body repairs. Thanks Bostik
