    the quickest way is to get a 6 pack of beer and a can of WD40.open a can of beer and drink half, then squirt a little WD 40 on the pliers and drink some more beer, squirt some more wd40 and drink some more beer. work the pliers and drink some more beer and wirk the pliers.By now the plkeeries shood be gettin luce and have some moor beer. work the beer a little until the pliers taste fine. . spray sum more wd40 on the beer and and drink the pliers. By now you shood be pretty loose and to hell with the pliers

    First, apple cider vinegar is the BEST rust remover for anything. Soak your item in the vinegar for a day and the rust will dissolve, leaving a browned finish. Cheaper than Coke also, LOL.
    And the BEST penetrating solution, bar none, is KROIL. Mechanics everywhere swear by it and so do I. Order direct: http://www.kanolabs.com/penLub.html#anchor173855

    See, I told you KROIL was popular. I buy it in the aerosol can though.

    Try good old home made penetrating oil. It's all I use anymore. Mix acetone and ATF 50/50. Works great.

    mix a little acetone in with the kroil it will clean and lube at the same time
    saves me time
    have you ever tried to clean the action on a Remington sports-master 512
    22?
    you have to tear it apart to get the gunk out 2 or 3 hour job
    but, little squirt and she is good to go. LOL

    You want nasty grimly grunge try an M60 Machine gun that fired blanks:hide:
    Worse, at the time nobody told us about the carb cleaner in the shower method. I think that beats tranny fluid and kroil hands down..
