After the success of my South African Dung Beetle thread, I now present something on WD40.

The follow-up thread is called "WD40,BBC & Wacky Uses For WD40 Products". See the links below.

This link is for the BBC World Service Documentary on WD40.

Grey Goo, bugle, jakimo, .... hope you've all been listening to the BBC World Service documentary? I knew about the WD40 uses website but somehow Joey Greens' was a lot less formal and funnier!

I wish I could use it on my neck, shoulder, hip and ankle. They're all a bit of a curse and a cuss or three today.

In your humble opinion, presumably?

I am sure we have had a WD40 thread before.. very enlightening it was too.

don't no about those areas, but might be useful around damp nether regions of octogenarians

Clapton is God....In my humble opinion this thread will also be a success and very enlightening!

Bingalau....Learning about product history is a great way of passing time today I think. The BBC World Service programme was excellent.

jakimo....I'm sure your damp nether regions may find this product a bit....err....harsh.Do other fellow octogenarians find it useful though?

. . . in roughly the right proportions creates just about the same mixture as WD40, obviously without the little bits & pieces they put in there to make it unique.

WD40 (& PlusGas etc) is, after all, just a 'thin' oil that gets into tight places quicker than yer average 10/40w.

I still buy a can when the bank manger is feeling generous, but tend to stick to the cheapies.

I think you should also give a warning if you breath the smell of WD40, it can trigger asthma attacks
