I've tried a whole bunch of different oils to cure rust bluing: olive oil, ATF, cutting oil, Balistol and the like. What do you folks like, and why? Thanks

Any water displacing oil should work, as long as it doesn't contain Silicone. That's why used motor oil cut 50/50 with kerosine works, the Silicone is burned out of it.


I prefer wood to plastic, leather to nylon, waxed cotton to Gore-Tex, and split bamboo to graphite.

I always stayed away from penetrating oils, for fear of removing the "rust"( not a verified action), often just used "way" oil, because it was at hand.

30W non-detergent motor seems to work pretty well.
Let it cure over-night before wiping it off.

I use this! A gallon goes a long long way.

I don't believe that Castrol DWF is available here in the US.

One of the main reasons I use the MO/K is that since it's inexpensive, I can always have a PVC tank full of it, and do complete submersion overnight.
