Homemade Rust Buster
Posted August 03, 2011 - 08:15 AM
My Example: Rust Bustin'
At My Local NAPA A Can of PB Blaster Cost $7.95 WD 40 Cost $6.89 Liquid wrench was a Steal at $4.79....These Aerosole Spray cans don't last long and half the times the Nozzels Clog up....I think they are a Rip Off.
My Solution comes from My 76 year old Brother, who is a Retired Mechanic of 40 plus years...He allways used his own Homemade "Recipe" that I have adopted and allways keep in a Spray bottle in my shop. I recently used it to seperate a Frozen Solid 2 piece Driveshaft. I Swear, this Recipe, which my brother refers to as "Panther P---"
Works Incredibly Good on Everything .....
Recipe : Mix equal amounts of Trani Fluid, Brake Fluid & Marvel Mystery Oil...that's It. Give it a Try, I think You'll Agree.

As far as Cost goes, Not sure, But I also save and reuse old Trani Fluid & Brake fluid whenever I can for this purpose so I think I'm saving quite a bit.

*Vasaline to wipe down the plow after plowing, instead of grease, or instead of painting it. It keep the plow from rusting, it's clear, so you still see the natural clean finish, and it cleans off a little easier than grease.
*Easy-Off oven cleaner as a paint remover. Spray it on, let it sit for 5-10 minutes, hit the surface with a high pressure washer. Dry with the air compressor.
*Bug and Tar remover to remove old grease from parts. It virtually eats the grease right brfore your eyes.
*Dawn Dishwashing Liquid as a degreaser. After you use the bug and tar remover, wash the parts with the Dawn to remove any left over grease on the surface.

I'm going to try your three part formula as it would seem the shelf life would be very long.
Thanks for the post.

What is Marvel Mystery Oil used for? I'm not familiar with it.

just throwing this out; did you know you can buy PB blaster in a gallon can? comes with a pump spray bottle, for around $20-25. Much less waste ful than the spray cans. You can also get your brake parts cleaner and WD40 that way. I find it saves a lot of money when you can control the outflow better.
Yep I've been buying PB, WD-40 that way for some time and have also found a source for some of the chemicals I use in my business.
Hairspring cleaner aka One Dip is very expensive ($108 per gallon) and is also vital when working on any timepiece but at the same time it's also rarely in stock at most distributors, so I started looking for a replacement source and after some research found it it's nothing more than Tetrachloroethylene/Perchloroethylene or Drycleaning fluid and also is a major component of brake cleaner, so I get it from a dry cleaning supply co. locally and costs $23.95+tax per gallon, big savings over getting it in a repackaged bottle with a fancy name.
But you have to be very careful using it, as it's a Class 2 Carcinogen and can be absorbed through the skin.
I've seen the 50/50 ATF-Acetone and it does seem to work but I have to try this new mix it sounds like a winner to me, thanks for posting it DanO.
