What ELSE have you used your gun cleaning solvent on besides firearms?
Well, since the aerosol can has the little tube, just like WD-40, sometime I turn to it in the perfumed can of kerosene's place. So far it has helped a LOT in two areas. The deadbolt on the door and a sticky bearing on 55+ year old clothes drier.
Unlocking the deadbolt was taking a lot of force. I was worried it was going to twist the key off. Normally, I'd turn to graphite for such a thing, but the tiniest spritzch of RemOil made it as good as new. Now I can hardly tell it HAS engaged the bolt, it's so smooth.
My ancient clothes drier has a separate motor for the blower. One turns the the drum, the other is connected to a wheel and runs off a pencil thick round rubber belt. Well, the blower bearing was sticking causing the belt to slip and make a GAWDAWFUL squeak. I had to remove the belt and wheel to get the little straw of the solvent can in there, and it took a few applications, but it seems to be fixed now. Or working, I guess.
I'm thinking this method is better than just WD-40, as gun solvent stays oily a bit longer, thus coating better.
So, hooray for firearms accoutrement. Is there nothing they can't do?
Have you ever fixed something with Hoppes or Break-Free or what have you?
