Title: Bluecreeper Testament
Post by: Chuck White on April 27, 2018, 01:32:22 PM
My usual use for Blue Creeper is applying a drop on each end of my tooth setters readout dial indicator rod every once in a while!

A couple of days ago, I had the blade guide motor off of my sawmill, checking for stretch in the chain!
While it was off I noticed that not only was the chain stretched, but the sprocket on the end of the motor was worn!
The sprocket and the roll-pin were severely rusted in place, I tried drifting the roll-pin out, but it just didn't want to move, so I applied a couple of drops of Bluecreeper at each end of the roll-pin and both sides of the little sprocket and repeated with the Bluecreeper again in the evening!
This morning I went out and the roll-pin just drifted out just like it was supposed to!
Then I went to my tool box and got my little battery clamp puller and clamped it onto the sprocket and against the shaft and the sprocket came off so easily that I could hardly believe it!  
As long as Bluecreeper is available, I'll always have some on hand!  8)

A friend of mine once asked me "What's in that, anyway"!

I replied BlueCreeper!   ;D

Used some again today!

I changed the "feed" chain and sprocket and shaft (upgrade), had a little trouble getting the power feed drive pulley off, added a couple drops to the shaft on both sides of the pulley and went to lunch!

Couple minutes messing with it when I got back out there and had it apart!

Still have about 3/4 of the bottle left!

Great stuff!  :)

Yup, it is just a natural reaction to reach for the Bluecreeper.  I did twice this week.  ;D

I picked up a bottle in Boonville. Haven't had a chance to use it or the pickaroon I bought at the same time. I'll be back at the mill and the shop next week after my house painting project so they'll be put to use then.

  I was removing and sharpening mower blades today, had my mower lifted with my ATV winch and using a 1/2" electric impact wrench to remove the blade nuts. The nut on the center blade was frozen and just would not move. I had been working on my mill and had my toolbox in the ATV basket and I remembered I had a bottle of Blue Creeper in the top of the box. I got it out, and ran the needle applicator around the nut then the washer and let it sit a minute or two. I put the socket back on the nut and ran it forward and back a couple times and the nut broke free and spun right off. I thought I was either going to have to take a torch to it or saw it off and replace the shaft on the spindle. A shot of Blue Creeper turned out to be a lot easier, faster and cheaper.

I just ordered a Logrite Peavey and hookeroon, and was disgusted with myself when I realized I forgot to order some Bluecreeper to try out.

That's too bad.  :(
As they say, they can sneak in a bottle and that saves on shipping. I need to order a bottle too. Maybe they can sneak in a cant dog.  :D

Mary and I have seriously retired from sawing.  But I still use BlueCreeper when I'm restoring old guns.
