    Thinned out more maybe a rust inhibitor for storing machinery? JRouche

    Curious, if you pour a little out and let the solvent evap. off will there be a waxy residue left?

      tried a small amount on my fingers and it felt like baby oil, but trying to dry them a slick reidue remained,but did not feel like wax. guess i will try on some aluminum as my wife wants a nut cracker like in recent hsm.
