Honing oil for rod machines

Other guys that have or work in machine shops. Have any of you used the Interchem product for your rod hones. If so How do you like it and how is the finish.

I have always just used a thin solvent, that keeps the honing stones free of buildup. What you do not want to use (and I have seen a lot of people do it) is motor oil. That will clog the stones in short order. Place a deep pan under the block and flood the cylinder you are honing.

I would stay with the Sunnen oils as there stones are made to break down with there oil as I have talked to some shops in the past that tried other oils and were not happy with the change.

Karl brings it when he stops by (usually Ocotber and March). I honestly don't remember what we last paid for it. I need some so I'll find out soon.

Chevelle_LS6, since this is a pretty engine-specific tool (rod hone), I'll leave it in the engine forum.
