Recommended Products.

Having tried a product recommended on the forums that worked great, (Mr Clean Magic Eraser). I thought it would be interesting to start a thread about products that you were really impressed by. So on that note, I saw this tool advertised in one of my car magazines and thought it would be great for the trailer, boat, car, etc. It's a way to seal crimped electrical connectors. It keeps the connection from getting wet and corroding and makes a it a lot less likely to come apart and short out. I received mine two day ago and have used it several times. Place connector in mold, clamp, inject hot plastic, when cool remove from mold. The company's name is Spliseal, they have a website with their products on it. I have no affiliation with them nor will I make any money for this endorsement.

Thanks...

I Like the concept... a lot of this stuff I already have. Will look at all this and see what I need to fill in the gaps. To think what I could have done with this with all the boats & RV's & cars I've had pass through this place...

That's a pretty neat tool.

Water displacement forty

We all use it, but did you know ALL the uses.....


1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
4.. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.
5. Keeps flies off cows.
6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
7. Removes lipstick stains.
8. Loosens stubborn zippers.
9. Untangles jewelry chains.
10.. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
12. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.
13. Removes tomato stains from clothing.
14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
16. Keeps scissors working smoothly ..
17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.
18. 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.
19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!
20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers.
22. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings=2 0of squeaky noises.
23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open.
24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.
25. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans
28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running=2 0smoothly.
30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31. Removes splattered grease on stove.
32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain..
37. Florida 's favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'
38. The favorite use in the state of New York , WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.
39. 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.
40. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
42. Also, if y ou'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 rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!
43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.
P. S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

Thumbs up A couple of things

Here are a couple of items I have found to work very well. The first is the Kill-A-Watt electrical test device. Among other things, it measures Volts, Watts, Amps and a variety of measures of your electrical usage. It is absolutely indispensable when you are calculating Amp Hours for installing a solar system, and is a great way to make sure you have clean power when you hook-up at a site. It is available through Radio Shack for $24.95.

Second is the Silicon Caulk Remover I got from VTS. This stuff works great for removing stubborn silicone that has usually been over applied by the PO!!
Thanks Steve!

Hope these help!
