Just received this on another forum.
I got the April/May edition of Machinist's Workshop magazine yesterday.
Another very talented Lloyd did an interesting test of penetrating oils where he measured the force required to loosen rusty test devices. Get the issue if you want to see how he did the test. But, I thought the results he reported interesting. Maybe you will, too?

Pentrating oil / Average load / Price perfluid ounce
None / 516 pounds /
WD-40 / 238 pounds / $0.25
PB Blaster / 214 pounds / $0.35
Liquid Wrench / 127 pounds / $0.21
Kano Kroil / 106 pounds / $0.75
ATF-Acetone mix / 53 pounds / $0.10

The ATF-Acetone mix was mixed 1 to 1 ratio.

Post from 2007? :p

Nah, really interesting information, looks like I'll have to grab some ATF and see if I become one of those people crying out "It won't mix with acetone!"

I have Some Chem search "yield" Apparently cost $60 a tin and have heard $80 , Works very well best I have seen it actually penetrates un like wd40 or rp-7 , Been told it's on par with kroil.
I have heard of the magic mix but never tried it.
