Blue Creeper - Very Addictive to say the least
« on: January 10, 2015, 10:38:10 am »
The more you use this stuff, the more uses you find for it.

I initially bought it to lubricate a few garden tools after seeing Jeff Rescue a pair of hedge pruners. I went through each of our prunner and gave them a drop or two and they all move better than when they were new.

Then I had a set of metal log tongs for the fire pit that had rusted in the joints and took both hands to open and close. Blue creeper to the rescue. A drop or two in each pivot point and now I am back to very easy single hand operation with them.

So I kept going. Since day one, the chuck on my Rikon drill press felt stiff and you had to use the key to open and close it all the time. I gave it about a half dozen drops of blue creeper and now it opens nad closes with extreme ease. Had tried WD-40 over the years but it never helped. Blue creeper resolved the problem in one application.

I find myself using this stuff all over the house. Have lubricated door locks, door hinges, trailer hitch latches, my sawmill and cnc machine.   

In short, I am a big fan of Blue Creeper. Thanks for making this fantastic product. 8)

I had a bottle next to me all afternoon today. I rebuilt some shocks on one of our snowmobiles last week. Today while putting the suspension back together, I found half the bogie wheel bearings were real sticky. Two bearings were especially bad, almost to the point of being frozen tight. In the past, I would have replaced at least 6 out of the 11 bogie bearings. Today I thought I'd try some Creeper on them and see what happens. I was blown away at how free I got all these bearings.  Even the two I was sure were junk, spun easily after working the Blue Creeper in for a while.

This was on Vicki's '09 and she is extremely fussy on maintenance. I showed her the before and told her to get her VISA card out. Later I had her back out in the shop and showed her how easy they spun...she was amazed.  It saved us a bunch of money on bearings today.

I love this stuff.

   I recently totally dismantled an old boat trailer, approximately 50 bolts because of the rollers, winch stand and even tore the hand winch apart. I knew the Blue Creeper worked good but what really surprised me was how little I used for such a big job.

Had a piston in a brake caliper get stuck with the disc contacting the brake rotor.  Wheel got very hot, and you could not drive the vehicle very far.  My BIL and I pulled the wheel, and applied some bluecreeper to the piston shaft.

I needed a new tire on one my trailer's today. Instead of dragging the floor jack through the snow, I grabbed the bottle jack that's kept in the trailer. This trailer is about ten years old and the jack hadn't been used in at least that long. When I went to screw the extension on top up, it wouldn't budge. I took it into the garage to thaw it out and a pair of channel locks still wouldn't turn it.

Time for the Blue Creeper.

I had a short phone call after a few drops were applied and 10 minutes later, tried again.  With my channel locks, I was ready to bear down like I did before the Creeper. Uh Uh... the screw broke free easily.

I use it alot. I thinks it's because of the precision applicator. Keeps things from being sprayed everywhere. I feel like a doctor.  8)

hey this happened to me a week or so ago.  Smoke everywhere!  Called Kevin and he fixed it on the side of the road with just a bottle of Bluecreeper too!
