    That PB Blaster is good stuff. I have a 24 volt rechargeable drill that the keyless chuck was frozen up. Robbie and I with two LARGE pairs of channel lock pliers finally got it to move enough to remove the bit. He suggested PB Blaster and I had some in the barn so I hosed it down. Fifteen minutes later I can spin chuck with my fingers.

    Wow!

    I am not familiar with the product.
    Is PB blaster the full name of it?

    PB Blaster is some great stuff. It'll break nearly anything loose. I always keep a can around.

    I have used it many times. It is generally very good.

    Yes PB Blaster is the full name. Most auto parts stores carry it as well as WalMart

    PB Blaster (often just "Blaster" in conversation, at least around here) is an excellent penetrating oil. Probably the best I've ever used.

    But it won't keep that drill chuck from seizing up again, so put some SBGO on there!

    I have had a weed eater that the engine was frozen solid on and I filled the cylinder full of PB Blaster and let it soak for a weekend and it fired up. When I was a full time wrench turner, we used it for everything. It is a great product.

    I have used PB Blaster for years. There's nothing better in my opinion.

    Dittos to all. We used to use PB Blaster where I used to work to remove bolts from old molds coming in for rework. It was absolutely the only product that would free those things up. It works pretty good on pesky lug nuts too.

    As CampingJosh said though, the PB Blaster is just too thin to be a good lube. SBGO fills that bill nicely.

    Yep it's good, I have a can as well. Good ol' WD40 is one of my favorite helpers in the shop too.

    Love the Blaster. That and Liquid Wrench have solved many issues for me.
