Re: Replace cotter pins with welding rod

I have a jar of lanolin for coating the threads of turnbuckles. It works well and is dirt cheap. Won't wash off either. I was surprised at how sticky it was - I expected it to be like a thick soap but it's more like very thick honey - VERY sticky.

I wouldn't use it anywhere else but on those threads it works better than anything I have tried.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
