I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950.
As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything. the Homecraft i bought at an estate sale. I brought them both home and coated up all the moving parts the screws and pivots in the table saw, the blade bearings and adjustment screws and the surface between the infeed/outfeed tables and the base of the planer. And no kidding everything runs like new. I was amazed.
For 10 bucks i consider this stuff well worth it. It lets everything run like poop through a goose and wood chips and dirt don’t stick to it. I’ve lubricated hand cranks, adjustment screws, bearing surfaces, bearings themselves, I even put a squirt on the dovetail on my MKII jig and now the angle setting piece slides smooth. The best part is even though it is viscous like a light oil the protection stays and doesn’t run-off even when handled (the MKII). I doesn’t even smell bad, it smells kind of like a citrus meets exxon scent :P
