    Don't ask.
    Heh-heh...

    Chainsaw chains and blades can easily reach over 112C (~234F) when run briskly... that's what that honey-style, oily goo is meant to deal with! A 1911's rails just can't get hot enough for it to be useful. Plus, IIRC it contains stuff in it that is/are meant to keep too much wood-chip mulch staying on the chain, which may or may not be good for gunz and gun finishes..!

    WD-40 is an excellent cleaning product for chainsaws, though.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    Hi,
    First time I've seen this...

    Usually I'm the only one singing the praises of Mobil 1!

    I like the MOLY idea also!
