You probably can find it in any one of the box "home improvement" stores(Lowes, Home Depot and similiar), or any better auto parts stores (Napa and such). Just be prepared to shell out through the nose ($15+per gallon), so it won't be cheap if you have a 20 gallon parts washer.

In a while, Chet.

I haven't used it ... but have heard of it, and there are a few different types of fluid available.

My buddy gets 'used' Ozzy Juice from work. They keep it only a very short time as they are a big outfit. I want to get that same stuff but it seems expensive, especially if I can wait a week or so for the new replacement batch. He works in a place that has lots of money to blow, and I wouldn't doubt if less parts got washed in their 30 gallons of disposed juice than I would clean in a month in a little washer.

Agitene is the old standby, what other types have been used with good results?

I tried a few weeks ago looking at various places for some with a flash point over 150* but found none.
