this is a picture of the cardboard baler at my job. at least 2 months ago i sprayed this part down with fluid film so the wheel would spin easy when you open and close the gate while making the actual bale. just look at how wet the threads still are... WD-40 would be dry by now as would most(if not all) other lubricating substances but the fluid film is ever bit as wet and slick as when i first sprayed it:weightlifter::weightlifter:

Good idea. I'd like to see the progress.

at least twice a day a bale is made so that's at least 4 times a day that wheel is turned over those threads. so lets see that's 14 bales a week so that's 28 times a week so roughly 224? times that wheel has been turned over those threads since the initial application and it's still that wet:weightlifter:

3 months after posting the initial picture and, roughly 5 months after the initial application, just take a look at how well the fluid film is still holding up on these threads! yes, it's not as wet as when first applied but the fact remains it is still there. wd40 woulda waved bye bye months ago. if this aint proof positive that fluid film is the best lubricant in the world nothing is:cool2::cool2: pay special attention to the fact that there's no dirt build up in the area protected by the ff:nono: ff says i don't think so dirt n dust:nono::weightlifter::cool2:

it's been at least 13 months since the initial application. last thursday night (10/28) i decided it was time to reaply but, first some pictures to show how well the fluid film was still hanging around 13 months later:weightlifter::weightlifter:

first pic is with the wheel turned for all the threads to be exposed, second i'm about to wipe the threads with a paper towel to show that they are still wet, 3rd shows how much junk came off on the paper towel, 4th is a closeup of the threads and, 5th is the threads being sprayed again. there isn't a single person at work who isn't flabergasted because no one thought the ff would stick around but it proved all them non believers wrong. go team!:weightlifter::weightlifter:
