Whats your do all lube?

Hey everyone,

Just wondering what everyone uses for spray can lubes? I got a shelf full of them. Lately I have been using Liquid wrench Chain lube a lot. It goes on really thin and dries to a Motor Honey consistency. It really stays put once dried. In a pinch it works pretty good in small bearings.

WD40..... It just works.

I use it for everything from tap lube to anti rust. There are better specialized products but I don't know a better jack of all trades product.

Just my .02

I have to say WD40 does have a lot of great points. Ever had a key stuck in a lock? WD really works well on a lot of things. I have seen some results of rust prevention and its rated at the very top.

WD stands for Water Diffuser,,,or something to that effect. The problem with it is, it doesnt stay...it either runs out of the place you put it or dries up. I doesnt stay there to lubricate. My experience anyways.

I ran out of WD 40 a while back and my closest place (Wal-Mart..sorry) was out so I bought a can of, I can't believe I'm saying this, "Jig-a-lube. I don't know if you've ever heard of it before but I was happy with how it worked. It seems to be a form of liquid Lithium Grease in a can. My wife's door hinges on her car where getting a little squeaky, one shot of this stuff and it's been over a year now and the noise isn't back yet.

I don't have one do-everything lube. I use WD-40 for some things. I like straight 30 weight for thread cutting, seems to clear out the chips better and lube the tap/die. I use white lithium grease for things like hinges, except the hinges on my sedan which are stainless steel where I use anti-seize instead. I had an aerosol lithium grease, that would spray into tight areas, foam up a little, and leave a heavier grease when it evaporates - real good for squeaky leaf springs. I'm out of it right now, or I'd post the name - don't remember. (I think I would have remembered if it was Jig-a-lube. ).

"Jig-a-lube might be a Canadian only thing but it did work and has held up over time.

I don't use any one thing. I have WD-40, PB Blaster, Fluid Film, Cutting Oil and generic WalMart penetrating oil up on the shelf. There is other stuff up there as well, I just can't think of it at the time. A lot of the time I just grab whatever is handy but there are tasks that I prefer one thing over another. For example a combination of PB Blaster and Fluid Film seems to work rear well for freeing stuck engines. I spray PB Blaster let it set for a day then spray Fluid film. Then I try to work the engine back and forth. I repeat this cycle numerous times until I have success. It took me all winter to unstick my Allis Chalmers WD45 a few years ago but it runs great now.

I have never heard of Jig-a-lube.

My bad guys, it's called "Jig a loo". It might be a Canadian only product, because this is where I got it, either there or Wal-Mart.

Jig-a-Loo Lubricant | Canadian Tire

Let me know if you guys have seen it State side...I don't know, worked great for me, I think it's got a lot of graphite in it so it may not be good for some high heat things but for hinges, it worked like a damn.

haha jig a loo, first time the old lady handed me that I thought i was gonna have a long night without her,,,

no kidding my better half bought some and it is actually a good product.

For me the best thing to cling to your saddle lube is Honey Goo. Made with bee's wax, and is the best for 67-72 chevy rocker panels and cab corners. this is lube with sticking power and completely stops metal cancer, we use this at the farm on the gate latches too, we have a few gates for sure and at -40 they actaual move.

kleen flo honey goo >>> I kid you not U nut busters,,

No WD-40 around here. I use JB80, twice as good as WD-40, for the spray lithium, I use Deep Creep made by Sea Foam. Same theory, goes on as a liquid to penetrate and then solidifies to a lithium grease for long term lube. Aero-Kroil is a good penetrant/lube too but much more spendy than the shelf stuff. We also use a solid lube in a tube, but the name escapes me now. It works on most anything, rubber, electrical, metal.
