WD-40 - use on plastic?????? Yokes

Found this when searching for lubricants. (don't ask)




I thought that you might like to know more about this well-known product.

When you read the "shower door" part, try it. It's the first thing that
has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it
works just as well as glass. It's a miracle!

Then try it on yours stove top ... Viola! It's now shinier than it's
ever been. You'll be amazed.

The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and
degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three
technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name
comes from the project that was to find a "water displacement" compound.

They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The
Corsair Company bought it in bulk to protect their Atlas missile parts.

The workers were so pleased with the product, they began smuggling (also
known as "shrinkage" or "stealing") it out to use at home. The
executives decided there might be a consumer market for it and put it in
aerosol cans. The rest, as they say, is history.

It is a carefully guarded recipe known only to four people. Only one
of them is the "brew master." There are about 2.5 million gallons of
the stuff manufactured each year. It gets it's distinctive smell from a
fragrance that is added to the brew. Ken East (one of the original
founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.

Here are some of the uses:

Protects silver from tarnishing

Cleans and lubricates guitar strings

Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making it slippery

Keeps flies off cows

Restores and cleans chalkboards

Removes lipstick stains

Loosens stubborn zippers

Untangles jewelry chains (I wonder about this?)

Removes stains from stainless steel sinks

Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill

Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing

Removes tomato stains from clothing

Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots

Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors

Keeps scissors working smoothly

Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes

Gives a children's play gym slide a shine for a super fast slide

Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on
riding mowers

Rids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises

Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open

Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close

Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as
vinyl bumpers

Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles

Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans

Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons and bicycles for easy
handling

Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly

Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools

Removes splattered grease on stove

Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging

Lubricates prosthetic limbs

Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell)

Removes all traces of duct tape

I have even heard of folks spraying it on their arms, hands, and knees
to relieve arthritis pain.

Florida's favorite use was "cleans and removes love bugs from grills and
bumpers

The favorite use in the State of New York--WD-40 protects the Statue of
Liberty from the elements.

WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will
be catching the big one in no time. Also it's a lot cheaper than the
chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind
though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not
allowed in some states.

Use it for fire ant ! bites. It takes the sting away immediately, and
stops the itch.

WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and
wipe with a clean rag.

Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and
dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick
spots with WD-40 and re-wash. Presto! Lipstick is gone!

If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the
moisture and allow the car to start.

WD-40, long known for its ability to remove left-over tape mung (sticky
label tape), is also a lovely perfume and air freshener!

Sprayed liberally on every hinge in the house, it leaves that distinctive
clean fresh scent for up to two days! Seriously though, it removes black
scuff marks from the kitchen floor!

Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't
seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to
get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of
marks.

Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly!
Use WD-40!

The applications appear to be endless.

Don't have the patience to read all of that, just don't use WD40 on
your CH Yoke unless you want to melt the plastic parts.

Hi Bob;
I use WD40 for a lot of things around the house, and perhaps some of the
other folks have used it on the yoke spindles, but I'd give it some thought
for that purpose. I could be wrong, but I think one of the dry lubricants
might be better because WD40 has a tendency to collect dust, and this might
be defeating the purpose.
I have a CH yoke that I haven't used for a while now, as I favor airplanes
that are stick flown, but I tried several things when I had the yoke up and
running, and WD40 was one of them. I also tried Elmer's spray lubricant, and
some silicone sprays. None of them worked for very long really. I tried
waxing the shaft as well, but that just collected dust, which I believe is
the real culprit in finding a lubricant that will work. Dust is the killer
for that bushing/shaft combo.
I think Dallas or Quilly found something that worked. I'm sure they'll chirp
up here shortly for you.

Don't worry, I read enough here to not use WD40 on my yoke. I just
found that list and thought it would be of interest. But thanks for the
advice, it will probably help any new people to the group. :)

The CH sites specifically warns against using anything that is
petroleum based , which WD 40 is. End of that story.

I use the Liquid Wrench Brand Dry Lube with PTFE, made by Radiator
Specialty Company in North Carolina and sold in most Auto Parts
stores. www.Gunk.com is their web site. When I got my new yoke last
spring, it was horrible. Couple of blasts of this stuff, and it has
been like a babies butt ever since.

Bob, I used a FTFE lubricator from Radio Shack, called Precision Needle
Lubricator... it works like a charm on my Yoke, it looks like a pencil,
and costs around $2.

I read somewhere that one of the main constituents is banana oil which is
partly responsible for the smell. Anyone know if this is true?

Well...I did use it on my yoke a while back and it still works.
I promised Crash and Dallas I'd open up the yoke and take some pictures of
the inside, but I haven't gotten around to doing that.

TBH...I'm a little scared of what I'll find. :-))

Don't spill any WD-40 on the floor - or you'll realise what the banana oil
does for traction!
