46 corrosion inhibitors/rust protection tested.
This is a comprehensive test with good analysis.

Responsible gun owners and collectors are fanatics about care and preservation. I use the CLP pictured below on my firearms, bikes and most other friction bearing or weather exposed metal surfaces.

Thanks Lineslinger, I guess that's enough info to make a decision.

ACF-50 doesn’t get tested here?

don‘t care if a deer thinks it smells like a badger’s fart!

I've been reading up on using boiled linseed oil to coat inside my bmw 2002 body when done and found folks using Finish Feeder Bee's wax on guns, machinist measuring tools and machines in damp shops

I very much agree, I don’t want anything that’s difficult to remove. I’m not just looking to protect nice big surfaces, I’m wanting to spray liberally into the nooks and crannies. Unless my bike is badly dirty, most cleaning is generallydone with WD40. In my mind it’s cleaning and protecting at the same time. Tests I’ve seen seem to show this does work well, provided its re applied regularly. But, for winter use, I do think something with a longer lasting and generally better level of protection would be wise.

As to your point about making you look at the bike whilst cleaning: that’s why, even in industry, cleaning is seen as the first step in preventative maintenance!
Holts Waxhoyl does a pretty good job underneath chrome mudguards.

I race sidecars,and as you probably know the frames are left unpainted,my current bike was built in 1978,by Trevor Ireson.I find the best way to stop the rust,and help protect it when racing in the wet is Duck oil.Waxoyl is fabulous in cars-has helped my Dolomite Sprint survive for 47 years.

You sure ‘bout that ?

Might attract them ?

I’ll post you some tins so you can coat them and leave them outside see if they get pissed on.

Lets be scientific about this ;)
Diesel works a treat and doesn't smell as bad as it used to, heavy machinery use at least. I stick to a WD alternative for the bikes etc. Anyone remember what was used for workshop machinery protection in days of yor?

On the building sites the cement mixers used to be coated in deisil once they had been washed down

Old engine oil was another but as with diesel, flammability is a consideration.

Old engine oil mixed with proper creosote was good as a wood preservative on a fence or shed

Tw25 grease was the best I used, sadly not available in the UK. It used to be sold in the bike section of halfords.
For the bike, generally found anything with high wax content in it does well through the winter months.

I bought some ACF50 - funny stuff, I haven't used it before. I have sprayed it on my bike's engine cases and it has brought a lot of oily dirt off. It seems to be the ideal stuff for an 'oily rag resto'. I have wiped it around the wheel rims etc, keeping it away from the tyres and brake discs.

And my garage is now a little more fragrant.

Anyone tried this product before I lift the cover and go spray crazy ?
