Equal parts Acetone+ATF

Don't know if any of you guys know about this but I thought I would throw it out there. I have had so much help on here I was hoping to help some of you guys out. My father introduced me to this. Mix equal part acetone and some Auto Trans fluid in a spray bottle for those super tough nuts and bolts. We used it on an old chisel plow that was out in the pasture for decades. Sprayed all the rusted nuts and let them sit for a few hours and they started to come right off. I swear by the stuff. Worked great on my exhaust.

There was a article a couple years back, the link has since been disabled, so here is a copy/paste of the one section.


Article in the April/May 2007 issue of Machinist's Workshop.

They corroded of nuts/bolts so there were enough samples to try out the various penetrating oils on.

The nuts/bolts were tested by soaking them in the penetrating oils for 8 hours.
The load needed to break the nuts free was tested using a Baldwin compressometer.

The results (lower is better):

> 50/50 mix of PSF & acetone - 53 Lbs
> Kroil - 106 Lbs
> Liquid Wrench - 127 Lbs
> PB Blaster - 214 Lbs
> WD-40 - 238 Lbs
> None - 516 Lbs
