CRC Freeze-Off

anyone used this "miracle-in-a-bottle"? I'm a devotee of PB and Acetone/ATF brew.

Yes, it worked great on a rusted/frozen seat track screw in my Spider. Highly recommended.

It actually does work. I use a bunch of the "Gotta get that stuck thing LOOSE!" brews, sometimes with what I call a "cool" torch. Cool is not too much oxy in the oxy-acetylene or propane, not map-gas. Too hot and the penetrant burns off before penetrating, a little heat aids penetration. Then freeze-off is the 2nd phase in the "crack it loose" trick.

I told you about that stuff......when working on the John Deere tractor. Good stuff, ain't it?

There are a lot of "free'emup" solutions, much depending on the specific issue. After you wrench twist long enough, you find out what works best and where.
YES, Pete did suggest this one which is better/easier than the liquid nitrogen I used in the past. I still have some of the canned nitrogen which came to me from a customer in G.B. Couldn't buy it here. Freeze Off IS available, and works just as well.
