Mineral Spirits VS. Denatured Alcohol

(1/2) > >>

Slody B:
Just looking for opinions on the two.  One is paint thinner, and one states it is specifically for cleaning metal and glass.  I have not picked up any Mineral Spirits yet, but the Alcohol does just fine IMO.

thanks, 

Ben

i use acitone, it dries fast, cheap as dirt, and eats away at anything on your bearing...i buy from wal*mart, it costs around 2.00$ for a large bottle...although you need an ID to prove your 18

Slody B:
Very nice.  I use acetone at work all the time and it evaporates like nothing else, but there is a residue that it leaves.  I don't know exactly what that might be.  It does leave somthing behind.  I really need to do more interweb research on this.

Later,


Ben

ethcool06:
denatured alcohol contains some water which will rust your bearing over a long period of time. Go with paint thinner.

tyler....:
maybe a drop of thin lube after the cleaning?
