Kano Labs, the supplier of Kroil, is listed on my Vendors page under 'Tools':

Kano Laboratories, Inc. 1000 South Thompson Lane Nashville, TN 37211-2627

1-615-833-4101 1-615-833-5790 fax

Kroil (the oil that creeps) is a penetrating lubricant that is effective in loosening even the rustiest bolts. It costs about US $4 for an 8 ounce bottle, and $6 for the aerosol version.

As always, see
