    Any of you Canadians up there in the great white North ever use this spray lubricant, penetrate?
    Something called Jig-A-Loo lubricant-penetrate.
    I recently sold some of my suspension, and brake parts to a Canadian, and he was mentioning this product as the thing to use.
    Expensive as hell, and supposedly discontinued in the USA, as it's a product that most likely works, but the EPA probably finds some fault with it, for some reason or another. Dunno.
    Me, i never heard of it before, and wonder if i should give it a try?
    It's made in Canada, so i thought i might ask, here on this forum.

    Dam, I never seen it or heard of it, I don’t think as my memory ain’t what it used to be. I’ll have to try find some and give it a try. I use the Deep Creep made by sea foam. Kim

    Jig-A-Loo - Wikipedia

    Guess it's even hard to find in Canada.
    I GOOGLED this product, and found out that California OSHA, banned this product for sale in the state.
    But Wikipedia doesn't say anything about using it, importing it, into the state.
    Probably something our big shots in government, in this state, figure something isn't good for us, living here.

    I've used it before...cant say it stands out to me as being anything special??
    Typical "mechanic in a can" stuff...no matter what I use I break s**t anyway lol.
    Aerosols seem to have dropped in price for some stuff, but others going up.
    I bought a case of MP Hemi Orange paint (dodge dealership)as I read on here it's near extinct. $15/can. Same supplier I bought the red MP paint...$10/can.
    Spin the wheel with pricing...I'd be willing to ship, but now you have to sign off "no dangerous goods" at post office.
    Rambling here but I didnt think the Jig is anything special.

      Jig-A-Lo has a different meaning in the USA...

        Don't know how it's marketed, advertised, sold, up there in Canada, but i was interested in this stuff, as i was recently looking at chemicals, sprays, penetrates, products, that are used in the aviation industry, that you would never hear of, or buy, at the auto parts stores, or Home Depot, Lowes.

        :rofl:
        Close, that's a good one.
        But it's gigolo, but can be taken as GIG - O - LO, a different take on that Canadian spray.

          Princess auto carries it if i recall.
          There was a product years ago, magic wrench. That was the best stuff i ever used. Was unbolting box sides on an old gmc, and tried various sprays. The magic wrench worked the best.

            I have heard of Magic Wrench super penetrate.
            It's still available.
            I have a can on order from a Wall Mart vendor.
            Haven't got it yet, to try it out.

              With our winters we need all the lube we can get!
              If I read Wiki right, it's been banned since 2013 in Cali.
              We have it in Canadian Tire here

                  I have some, in my basement, bought from Canadian Tire. I thought I'd try it as a replacement for WD 40. Nothing special, to me. What does he use it for? There is another interesting product called Fluid Film. It's made from lanolin.

                    It's all over Ebay. I tell you though, I've had good success with Deep Creep. That Fluid Film is really not a penetrating lubricant. It's more along the lines of a coating as for freshly machined engine parts ant the like. It is great for that.
