PostSubject: WD-40   Thu Dec 11, 2008 4:20 pm

A lady got up very early one morning and went outside to pickup the
Sunday paper, she noticed someone had sprayed red paint all around the
sides of the neighbors brand new beige truck.
She went over and woke him up and gave him the bad news. He was, of
course extremely upset.
As they stood there trying to figure out what could be done about the
problem. They decided there wasn't much recourse but to wait until
Monday, since nothing was open.
Just then another neighbor came out of his house, surveyed the situation
and immediately went to get his WD-40 out and cleaned the red paint off
with it.
Guess what! it cleaned up that paint without harm- ing the original
paint on the truck! I'm impressed!

Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust
preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was
created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical
Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a 'water
displacement'
compound. They were successful with the 40th formulation, thus WD-40.
The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile
parts.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is Nothing in WD-40
that would hurt you...' IT IS MADE FROM FISH OIL.'
When you read the 'shower door' part, try it. It's the first thing that
has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works
just as well as glass. It is a miracle! Then try it on your stovetop...
It is now shinier than it has ever been before.

I may have to try this on our shower door.

I just tried it on my shower door. It didn't work. Oh well, it was worth a try. I have some stubborn water stains.

I looked it up on snopes.com, and they said that the fish oil is just a rumor. The ingredients aren't listed on the can.

I bought a can of WD-40 at the store today. It will come in handy at my house.





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Nope it ain't made of fish oil.

WD-40's formula is a trade secret. The product is not patented to avoid completely disclosing its ingredients.[2] WD-40's main ingredients, according to U.S. Material Safety Data Sheet information, are:

* 50%: Stoddard solvent (i.e., mineral spirits – primarily hexane, somewhat similar to kerosene)
* 25%: Liquefied petroleum gas (presumably as a propellant; carbon dioxide is now used instead to reduce WD-40's considerable flammability)
* 15+%: Mineral oil (light lubricating oil)
* 10-%: Inert ingredients

Yep, you can rebuild a Chevy with WD-40 and Duct tape.

Any man worth his salt has WD-40 in his tool box. Lubricates squeaky door hinges,makes fan motors quit squealing, makes the belt(s) on your car last longer, lubes windshield wiper motors, and if your car drowns out, spray some WD in the distributor and it displaces the water so she'll fire up again. Also good for loosening gaskets, like head gaskets, when you're changing them. Bunch of other stuff too.

I've always got WD on hand. I'd carry it in a holster if I could.

That guitar string thing I didn't know though I should have. I'll have to put that one to use. Getting smacked upside the head when a guitar string breaks hurts. Bet it makes it easier when you use a slide across the strings too.
