    Ok we have P.B.Blaster, Liquid Wrench, good ol' WD-40, etc. Which one out them all is the best for removing stubborn bolts. Obviously the impact gun will do everything but if you need to losen and still have some finesse which one would you use?

    Drew I have always used WD-40 on my stubborn bolts. I have only heard of Liquid Wrench before never used it.

    I always use wd-40 and occcasionally slick50. But just because I use slick50 only occasionally does not mean it is not as good. The reason I use wd-40 usually is because there is a can of it in the car. WD-40 will always be in my glove box, and slick50 under the sink.

    I personally like PB Blaster... man that stuff seems to do wonders, but really it all comes down to letting it soak in and penetrate the cracks.

    Everyone has thier idea as to which one is the best....so here is mine. I like deep creep, works great for me. Someone else mentioned break free, this is also great, it is used for guns but we use it in a pinch out in the field.

    Re: Wrench in a can...

    Well slick 50 lubricates to stop binding, sticking, and squeaking. It is formulated with penetrants and rust inhibitors to free frozen or corroded metal parts, inhibit rust and displace moisture as it cleans and protects. And when your working on pipes that kind of stuff is important alot of water and dish soap etc.gets in between the threads ands will rust it up and corrode away the threads. Besides if I accidently tighten the threads to tight I will just spray the rings that way I dont round them off when taking them apart with the pipe wrench.

    I like PB Blaster but you have to let it soak really good... BFH works well too! [​IMG]

    Re: Wrench in a can...

    i always forget about the geography difference when talking with you guys, in the charleston SC area, in 13 years of restoring houses have only run into 1 case with iron pipe, everything is either plastic or copper. wife is from ohio, and we go to visit and seems like everybody has black iron, and it leaks.
    thanks

    I guess so...but the torch isn't good for EVERYTHING. I use it as much as I can, if I have one though.
