Subject: [MB] Liquid penetrant test
Here is some interesting info to test various liquid penetrants. This was
taken from a machining site. Thought I would pass it along for your
consumption. This is from the Vintage Jap MC list.
The "test" was using a Baldwin compressometer set on 1200-pound scale to
determine the load required to move a "dowel pin" on 6 identical setups.
Since ASCII plain-text email tends to "move around", the three columns which
follow may get messed up, but here goes...
Oil used_________________Avg load(Lbs)to move pin______price/oz
HomeBrew 50-50, ATF&Acetone______53___________________$0.10
FWIW - I know what I'll be trying in a pinch.
