Where can I find Naval Jelly???

Im in Regina and called just about every place I can think of ...when I ask for naval jelly, rust remover or phosphoric acid i get about 30 seconds of silence and then a "whats that?"

Ive tried chemical suppliers, paint suppliers, body shops, hardware stores...no luck.

Somebody please help me out

Regina Canada? Not sure there is a Lowes, Ace Hardware up there but if i were you i'd order it online or just ask about it at any hardware stores like you have been which doesn't seem to be helping. Even Amazon.com has it. They have Duro, Loctite Naval Jelly just have to search or buy online.

I got mine at Canadian Tire! Probably Princess Auto and Peavy Mart sell it as well. They are in small quantities though.

How big is the project you need it for?

Keep in mind there may be HAZMAT restrictions shipping some chemicals and there may be a cost associated with that. It doesn't make online purchase prohibitive. It may require ground shipping.

Canadian Tire...How long ago sas that??? the doorknobs I asked yesterday didnt have a clue what I was talking about...never heard of such a thing. I got the same answer from peavy mart.

I think im going to have to go down there in person and have a look myself.

...to answer your question...Im stripping a pair of hoods off a 40 international k series.

It is better to check in person, if you happen to live close.

Usually (not always) the sales people are young kids who have no clue what Naval Jelly is (along with a lot of stuff I try to get for my 56 in the parts stores).

I was trying to get spark plugs this morning for my 56 FORD F-100 w/272 Y-block V8. It was written on the tablet laying on the counter beside the book they were looking in.

The bozo was looking under chevy cars!

An older gentleman (works there) walked over and flipped the book to ford trucks, pointed at the correct year, and said he needs these plugs. They are on the shelf in the back.

Then they asked me how many plugs I needed. Excuse me?! Its a V8!!!!

Sorry to get off topic, but that was annoying. Better to check yourself.

Home Hardware has it here in Ontario so they should be able to get it for you there. When I asked here they gave me the same response you've been getting. Ask the person in there paint department to look it up. They DO sell it. It's just a product they sell so little of they might not know they sell it. If they can't find it just p.m. me and I'll get you there part number.

Same deal as Brian, WHAT?????
GO FIND the "Old Guy" working at a "real" hardware stroe and he'll get it for you.
These young punk's don't have a clue.
I got the same 1000 yard stare. HUH????????????????
"Who's the oldest guy working here?"
"Why do you want him?"
"HE knows what I want".

Think this is bad, Try asking for Neats foot oil.

...still looking.

Canadian tire didnt have it. I found two rust removal products...neither contained phosphoric acid or anything similar.

I'll try talking to the older fellow at home hardware today. Ive had good luck dealing with him in the past.
