• Fluid Film

    ~By Capt Walt

    Its been a long winter here in Maine, Hunting seasons over and its too cold for baseball and putting the boat in the ocean but too warm for ice fishing and snow? What’s that? I guaranteed a snow free winter by having my plow stuck on my truck. Just can’t get it off and if I do I know it wont go back on and we will have the biggest blizzard in history.
    So I’m looking for some penetrating oil to loosen up rusted boats and nuts. I have tried just about every product out there with varying degrees of success. Some work but are real nasty to use and dangerous to the environment, Others work so-so and some don’t work at all. I came across a product that I have never heard of so I thought that I would give it a try. Its called Fluid Film: Rust & Corrosion Preventive  Penetrate & Lubricant. Now that’s a mouthful!
    The can of Fluid Film is labeled “Environmentally Friendly” and “No Solvents” So I am wondering just how this stuff is supposed to work. We all know that most anti rust products will rip a few layers of skin from your hands so I am even more surprised when I read that this stuff is a “Wool Based formulation”. Now I started thinking what was derived from wool. Yea you guessed it.
    But how does it work? I sprayed some on an old rusty pair of scissors and this stuff started bubbling! It smelled good and was soft on my hands! Wow the rust actually melted off the metal and the scissors functioned like new.  So off I went, dragged out a pistol that had been used hard and put away wet; I sprayed Fluid Film on it and BAM! Not only did the dirt and powder residue bubble off the metal; It actually cleaned the copper fowling out of the barrel without using a wire bore brush.  Now this stuff is going into my hunting pack and another can in my tackle box and my truck and boat toolbox.  Its not often that you come across something that works better than advertised; but Fluid Film fits that niche.
    So off to their website http://www.eurekafluidfilm.com/ and I find a whole list of uses for this stuff. I will have to pick up a 5 gallon bucket of it. Off to try it out on my Baseball Gloves.
