The factory I work at uses “LPS1” spray lube and I have an opportunity to purchase at cost. I did a search on the internet and the manufacturer says it does not contain silicone. I am needing something to put on my precision hand tools to keep the rust at bay. Has anyone used this spray in there wood shop with good results ? is ther any other spray that I can use on these steel surfaces – tried paste wax and I dont like the results on my precision tools – Thanks for the replys.

I use LPS2 and LPS3 everywhere.
But haven’t used LPS1 yet…just WD-40…and I use it on a lot of my tools.
I just make sure any tools that come in contact with wood are wiped clean before use.

I LOVE the stuff … spray it on all of my tool surfaces … wipe it on hand tools … use it in an ultrasonic tank to clean small parts … GREAT STUFF. I usually buy a 5 gal. pail of it and split it with a friend. I put it in a sprayer that you can charge with compressed air after adding the liquid … MUCH more economical.

In a wood shop no problems with “spoiled” finishes ?

Some woodworking magazine did a comparison of around 7 rust inhibitor products and I’m pretty sure LPS came out near the top if not at the top in their testing. Need verification but I know it did well in their tests.

1yeldud1, can certainly be a problem.
As a hobbyist who does his own auto work, mr fixit work, and woodwork, all in a two-car garage, cross-contamination is always a concern, and requires extra precautions when switching genre’s.
I’ve yet to ruin a finish with oil….but I do have a lot of automotive stuff (and everything else) covered in sawdust.

BTW every once in a while I hook an electric leaf blower up and blow out the shop (full respirator of course).
Amazing what blows out from behind nooks and crannies.
