Here's my variation-

I have a production forging business and do lots of small table top pieces. I have an automotive parts cleaning tank and in it I have a mixture of :

2 parts WD-40

2 parts Thin-X

1 part Turpentine

I hooked up an auto fuel filter to the hose on the tank pump and use this mixture to do the final cleaning on my pieces. After a day we ship them out as is. Sometimes I will add Johnson's Paste Wax on top of the dried oil finish.

If I have a lot of small pieces to clean and oil I will throw them in the tumbler to clean, then add a few Handi-Wipes that are damp with my oil mixture to the tumbleled work and retumble which oils them as the wipes are tossed around. Then I remove the oily rags and replace with dry wipes and retumble and they are wiped and dried in the process.

I have been using this method for about 15 years and it has worked out very well. When I compared the longevity of this mix to the other formulas it is comparable and because it is thinner (with the addition of the WD-40) it goes on easier and dries faster.

Let me know what you think.
