  • Aerosol Lubricants, best ???

    Opinions on spray lubricants, primarily for coating tooling for rust prevention. Aerosol preferred for ease in application and coating mass parts (endmills, taps, drills, collets, chucks, etc)

    LPS, CRC, WD40 ??????? Marvel Mystery oil used to come in a spray can, can't find it anymore.

    Thanks !

    To coat tools and prevent rust try STARRETT M-1 oil.
    NEVER USE WD-40, it will ATTRACT rust!!!

      I've never been impressed with WD-40 for rust prevention.
      I prefer LPS 2 for daily wipe downs after use and LPS 3 for longer term storage.

      edit: I like Marvel Mystery Oil as well, but have never seenit in a spray can.
      I cut it twice, and it's still too short!

        Ironic? WD supposedly was a strive for a Water Depletion product, hence the name, and the version attempt (40).

          I recently got a Boeshield kit at Sears.... see here:

          Too early yet for me to form an opinion about its rust preventative effectiveness, but it's great at rust removal. ...much better than Naval Jelly!

            Although expensive, I put a pump sprayer on a bottle of Hoppe's #9. God, I love that smell, and it works as a pretty good rust preventative too. As far as lubricants, I have gotten to be a fan of Tri-Flow, then M-1 in that order.

              Yea, Max, I like WD if I drop a tool in the bilge, I'll use it as a first response
              'till I can get around to a more thorough cleaning. But I don't count on it
              for anything longer term.

                Water *displacement*. Its designed to displace water in ceavises so that the next product you apply does not just seal the water in.

                    Yes, flylo, I like LPS-3 also; but after three different cans of aerosol lps-3 that would not spray (bought at different times from different suppliers) I have liven up on it. Now use Fluid Film aerosol. John Deere uses it on there overseas shipments. Works for me.

                      Boeshield T-9 is one of the best - it drys waxy. I like LPS-3 also but it tends to stay sticky and atttact filth.

                        LPS-2

                        For very long storage- LPS-3 (but it's too heavy to be used as an aerosol)

                          Yep, I use LPS-3 in liquid form and brush it on or use BoeShield T-9 in a spray can.

                            I get LPS-3 in both aerosol and by the gallon can. It sprays fine.
