best penetrating lubricant

What would you say is the best. I have used Wd40 and it was pretty good, the super tech stuff sucked. I bought a can of PB Blaster and it woked great. I have heard of Kroil but never seen it in a store

PB blaster is the best I have ever used. If there is something better I would like to know about it.

pb blaster is by far the best that is easily obtainable. kroil is definitely the best if you can get a hold of it. it will actually creep up a bolt and into the threads and loosen the most seized bolts. our guys use it for water main and water meter replacements to get bolts off that have lived 10 feet under ground for 50 years. We get it at the water authority here in VA and we had it at my old shop, both places i know we have to special order it, and it is crazy expensive, so im glad i don't pay for it. we also have this stuff open and shut made by Drummond America that works really good, but as well as kroil it is hard to get with out a rep. if any one is interested in these two PM me and i'll see if i can get samples or at least some contact info. Also i have seen the kroil at fishers hard ware in Springfield VA, maybe a place like them or ace hardware in your local area would have it

Never heard of PB Blaster, but I have never had a reason to switch from CRC.

Kroil works very good. Seafoam does too, check out NAPA.

If your looking to loosen rusted nuts and bolts, apply heat and paraffin wax (candle) to wick up the threads. Most loosening agents have paraffin wax in their formula.

PB Blaster stinks but works. The can looks like it's straight off a late-night tv infomercial -- but it works.

I have never heard of PB Blaster either.

I have tried different products over the years, and nothing but, K&W Products, Knocker Loose Penetrating Fluid has worked as well. All of the other brands I have tried have been a disappointment, to say the least.

I use it as a lubricant, when drilling and tapping, along with 'rusted' exhaust bolts and nuts. It also use to' claim' it will free up 'stuck piston rings' on the can. Believe me it still works! I just did this 5 months ago, in a Honda that sat for a year with a blown head gasket, with coolant in the cylinders.

PB blaster is by far the best! As Grouch said it stinks (That's an understatement!) but it works. CRC and Kroil are both good too but the PB has them beat IMO if you can stand the smell, something that smells that bad just has to work!
