:no:

I just celebrate the rust and patina or sand it down and paint it,            :hide:         I did the WD-40 and steel wool trick once and it wasn't too bad though.

Heat the item that is stuck then apply paraffin wax as the item cools. I works about as well as any penetrating oil and is faster.        :twocents-02cents:

We all use it in ways never imagined when it was designed...

I would sand it and paint it if it was mine.  Might try the heat and paraffin on the Kohler screen of the 312-8 I got from my friend the penetrating isn't working. Got to shift some tractors around so I can take it apart with out blocking the others. It was parked in a shed that the roof was damage for years before my friend got it. It  Now I just have to find the paraffin, modified the cabinet it was in and don't remember where I put it.

Many true penetrants to choose from but WD 40 isn’t one. All are adequate :D but YMMV.

I walked by and found it on my drawing board with some canning lids that was in the same cabinet.

Franklin is just a bit too far, but I have been there. I was driving a 88 Ford conversion van  If my my memory is some what still working Highway 2__ was paved, but across the mountain was dirt with switch-backs. Had to keep the speed up as the turn on the switch back the right rear wheel was off the ground. Guess that Highway is all paved now.

Scraped out the underside of a 36" rotary deck and gave it an oil treatment and it's baking in the sun.

This one was a particularly dirty example and it cleaned up quite nicely.

 

It's sat in lacquer thinner in the ultrasonic cleaner for 9 or 10 days.

 

Soaking.

Every day or two I would run the machine for a cycle or two morning and night or whatever.

This afternoon I took it out and ran a can of brake clean all around it and through it and next to it and up down left right in out of it etc etc.
