Default PB Blaster to loosen parts

Found a vintage cap pistol last week from the 50's or 60's. After getting all the dirt out of it the trigger and hammer were in good condition. The cog wheel was rusted solid. Had it out on a newspaper on the kitchen table and every time I thought about it, would give it a spray. The can says shake well and tap gently and be patient. After about three days I took a flat tip screwdriver and held against a cog arm and tapped the screwdriver and felt the cog turn

Pretty happy with that success. The pistol had probably been in the ground half a century.

Its amazing what the stuff can do, just has a strong odor. Been using it since 2000, helps break free those rusted frozen nuts on wheel studs.



The #1-selling penetrant since 1957, PB B'laster quickly busts loose rusted or frozen parts caused by rust and corrosion. It also contains a non-evaporating lubricant that saves time and equipment and protects against further rust and corrosion.

Looks like yours in in a little better shape than mine, Bruinvikes. I had a hard time reading the name Hawkeye on mine, I thought it said Hawke and couldn't find any cap gun with the name hawke. Good find.
