One good product!

Well, I finally got around to odering up some Rust Reaper, and had a chance to give it the acid test in our work environment.  First job was to free up an Anti-Ice Valve on a helicopter turbine engine. It worked very well.  The next test was to free up a broken Rod End bearings that are part of the load cell setup of our dry fertilizer bin trucks.  A judicious amount of heat, and properly applied rust reaper, and all I can say is WOW!  I have tried many different products over the years for loosening stuck parts, and this stuff is the best I have used.  Coupled with the nifty applicator needle that the small bottles come with, which allows for precise placement of the amount of material a person wants, rather than 1/2 the bottle, this stuff is great!  Thanks Mike and Rust Reaper for a great product, and for supporting the Forestry Forum! 8) 8)

Yeah, I keep some in my saw pouch for throttle cable. I work in rain about 3 days a week or wet from the night before and the cable can rust and stick, not often, but water and metal and you know the results. Although, not really exposed except it probably gets in around the trigger assembly. Anyway I used that needle applicator and got some into the cable casing and that did the trick, like new. Don't stick anymore. :)

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)
