Kroil

(although K9P has been known to work good, if you can find it)

Kroil. It's what you find in good machine shops.

Kroil is my first choice. A bit expensive, then PB. About the only thing I use WD40 on is my shackle bushings for some pre-muddin lube.

PB Blaster is great stuff, but have any of you tired Kerosene? It works very well, and is in a lot of penetrating products

Another vote for Kroil. I've had way better success with it than I did with PB Blaster.

Another vote for Kroil. Been using it for maybe 30 years, have tried most of the others and it's better than any other that I've tried. (Never tried PB, though.)

You get it from the manufacturer, Kano Labs in Nashville TN. There's often a discount offer available, so ask when you call. Or order online:
Offer code - LATE

BTW, there are a whole bunch of varieties of Kroil, for special applications. I've always used the "original" orange-can stuff.

Usual disclaimer - I have no interest, commercial or personal, in this product or company.

Based on all of the recommendations here, I just bought some Kroil. What amazing stuff! There was a rusty bolt I've let soak for 2 weeks, with something like 6 or 7 coats of PBBlaster (which usually works great). Not budging. I put some kroil on it last night and it popped right off this morning!

when you buy Kroil from Kano Labs you have to use a company name. I made one up and made up a PO number.

Today i got an invoice for my "Accounts Payable" dept, even though I paid with CC on the website. I thought the disclaimer was awesome!

I feel so special, I hope the Kano police don't come knocking, this stuff has to be good, its not for the average Joe Blow
