A quality penetrating fluid is a must have for those stubborn bolts. Ive tried it all, WD-40, Liquid Wrench, PB blaster, ReleaseAll to name a few. Release All is pretty good, but rather expensive.

My home [garage] made stuff works better than anything else I've tried off the shelf. 1 part atf [cheap no name +3] : 1 part acetone in a dollar store spray bottle. I only mix what I need for the job as the acetone evaporates quickly, however that is what makes it so effective. It pulls the atf into the threads. A few squirts of this concoction and a brass punch to loosen up the corrosion has worked every time for me.
i use this stuff called "FREEZE" (i think) with a torch and it works great for frozen bolts were the head would normally break off... :TU:

I tried something similar at work (Chromate product, I think) that I didn't think very highly of. I wound up getting out the regular penetrant, and that finally got it loosened up. Personally, I think it's more of a gimmick.

+1 On the hydraulic crimpers. Also, a good pair of electrical cable shears are a must for clean cuts.
so, you never used it but your saying its a gimmick..?

shit works...

today i masterfully over engineered a hose rack for my compressor :D
i'm going to add a couple of more bars to the left side and make a lil tray to hold some random tools or whatever... will also add some sort of rubber mat so i dont have to hear them vibrating when the compressor runs :wacko:




i still have to add a couple of bars under the hose rack, triangles = strength...

yup... Harbor Freight sells junk as well as good quality tools...
all the hand tools are lifetime warranty which makes even the lesser quality tools good to go...

only real problem i have had with the sockets, the swivel impacts dont like big breaker bars lol but hey, just take it back and they give you a replacement :TU:
