I figured I would just put this in its own thread (pun intended) for people having problems with stuck fasteners that need Kroil, PB Blaster or any other penetrating thread releasing agent to remove a frozen fastener that just doesnt want to come loose.
"The April/May 2007 edition of Machinist's Workshop did a test of penetrating oils where they measured the force required to loosen rusty test devices. Buy the issue if you want to see how they did the test. The results reported were interesting. The lower the number of pounds the better. Mighty interesting results for simple acetone and tranny fluid!
