Re: 43 Uses for WD-40
But seriously, I once knew a guy who had a POS truck...

The paint was scratched all to hell.

One day he pulled up and it looked like he had just painted the thing. After asking he showed me his secret...

WD-40 on a microfiber cloth rubbed into the paint.

It only lasted for about two days, but damn it looked good for those two days...

He re-treated it and traded it in on a new car.

I can only imagine the dealers surprise after two days and the truck looked all scratched up.

Re: 43 Uses for WD-40
Some your uses were before the accelerent was changed. I don't think it still works for some of them. My father used it for relief from his artheritis, but with the new accelerent, it didn't work. It used to be charged with butane or some other highly flamable gas. That made it an excellent starting fluid for gas and diesel engines. Now they use some non-flamable gas like CO2.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

Re: 43 Uses for WD-40
I have used it for the last 40 years for gun flush, bore cleaning, lube and anti rust. I keep a sheepskin with it in the gunshop. I used it exclusively for years as a wipe down, rust preventer. I get better performance now with G96. G96 leaves behind a silicone film that works better on bluing to keep the rust down but G96 is a poor penetrant and flush/cleaner.

If you don't want to carry around and use but one product for all your gun cleaning, wiping, anti-rust jobs, WD40 is it.

Here is how I rate it for guns:

Anti-rust: very good (Was excellent before I met Mr. G96)
Flushing: excellent
Bore Cleaning: good
Lubrication: fair
Penetrating/Breakfree: excellent

Trivia:

I just heard this from a friend about 3 days ago. The reason why it is called WD-"40".

No?

Answer: It was the 40th version tested that worked to expectations.

Interesting fun little FACT.

Never use it to lubricate electric motors. AND I never use WD-40 because it has a smell that I don't like.

Terrible idea to use WD-40 on guitars...use Fingerease string lubricant on the strings, and an electronics contact cleaner such as Deox-it for scratchy pots, switches, and jacks. Then have a beer.

Re: 43 Uses for WD-40
It's really great! After finding repeated wasp nests in two protected areas near my garage, I sprayed WD40 two years ago. No more wasps and no more nests.

Also, for years, I had chipmunks or mice nesting under a certain area of my home's vinyl siding. I would hear them scratching inside the wall while I was in the house and find evidence on my patio because bird seed shells they took would be outside on the patio. Also, there were little pieces of insulation on the patio.

Last month, I took WD40 and pointed that red tubing up into the area and sprayed away. No more evidence of the critters nesting up there for the winter. A first after years of aggravation! Yay!

I used to sleep walk... One night I was dreaming of drinking ice cold seltzer water and I woke up suddenly. ..because I was spraying a can WD 40 in my mouth. I don't know WHY. So lets add 'thirst quencher while sleep walking" to the list..
'God is not who you think He is, God is Who He says He is."

"I tell you, My friends, do not dread and be afraid of those who kill the body and after that have nothing more that they can do. But I will warn you whom you should fear: fear Him Who, after killing you, has power to hurl into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!"- Jesus Christ
(Luke 12:4-5)

"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to God the Father except through Me."-Jesus Christ
