From the list Eucalyptus and Tea Tree ARE good to have around.

WD40 is a moisture repellent NOT an OIL.
Now the Brand WD40 has all kinds of new products but using WD40 as an oil is good way to screw things up.
Both my auto and gun smith instructors rammed that into our heads.

I always bave some sort of general lubricant around in cans , some spray, some not.
Ballistol and CLP are fail safe, 3 in 1 comes in handy.

Bacon oil = grease left after frying bacon.
Useful in many dishes.

Yes, I just thought it was an interesting term as opposed to "grease".
It seems to be the "secret ingredient" in may dishes!

Liquid Wrench is a low cost alternative to Kroil if anyone is interested in a good penetrating oil you can buy at any store for less than half the cost.

The new WD40 Specialist Corrosion Inhibitor is also great for protecting metal for long term rust protection. It doesn't feel oily after it dries which I like.

Get some.

Aloe based natural "lube" for use during "relations" is essential these days, my significant other only has one ovary due to a hysterectomy.

Honorable mention: Automatic Transmission Fluid "ATF" and PB Blaster

Rem Oil has found great favor with me, and in the house I like a good bottle of EVOO to cook with.

Kroil has it's place, too.

I use automatic transmission fluid to oil my guns and on my knife sharpening stones. Ed Harris (the former QC manager at Ruger) published a mix you own bore solvent called Ed's Red that is 1/4 ATF and he also recommended it for gun lube.


Now for food, olive or Canola oil (aka rape seed oil...)

Dextron III ATF is my #1 go to for anything gun or precision related. Works great on singer sewing machines with a persistent squeek.


I read about Ed Harris's "Eds Red" and asked myself, "what do I need kerosene and acetone for"


Geezer you and I are pretty much in lock step on a lot of things. Be fun to drink an adult beverage or a coffee with you someday.


Revolver's, nothing leaves them ticking over like a finely crafted machine like a q-tip soaked with ATF and a little time. It cleans, it leaves a film that stays even when wiped off.


And if you want to super power your ATF, put a couple of squirts of Goo Gone in a jigger of ATF.
That stuff is the cat's meow.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

For cooking oil/grease if I use oil I try to keep a jug of sunflower or peanut oil around but also have found cotton seed and grape seed are very nice.
Most often though, even deep frying, I save old cooking grease from chickens, bacon, ducks, beef, pork in a container by the range plus I have three containers in the fridge.
With my screwed up taste buds it now makes little difference really but before that happened , for home made French Fries, type of oil used made a real difference.
