    one can find these other ingenious useful uses for WD40 in google.

    i once would spray WD40 onto my squeeking fan belt tension pulley.
    it would initially work as an anti-squeek agent, but the squeek would return after 2 weeks or so.
    truly, a lousy lubricant.
    i had since made a more permanent solution: replacement of the idler assembly.

    i also used WD40 on my bintilador bushings. it worked, but only for a couple of weeks.
    i also tried singer sewing machine oil. it would also work, but only for a couple of weeks.
    the more permanent solution to bintilador woes, is replacement of the entire bintilador, or the bushings/armature.
    Regarding bentilador, I've experienced this too. Wd40 worked for few days then umusok. Next I used delo gold I have left, after a few days ayaw na umikot. What I saw my FIL do is disassemble the motor and use those dipahid na grease. But I don't think I have the mechanic skills to disassemble na motor. It would be easier to just buy a new fan.

    it certainly is!
    new bentiladors aren't very expensive, naman.
    i do have several "spent bintiladors" in the bodega... waiting for the happy tinkerer.

    Let's see...

    If I'll be coming from Mariveles, Bataan it should take me about...

    I think it's too far! And besides, I'm not a good tinkerer.

    ok lang po.
    i remember a tinkerer-for-hire in the neighboring barangay...
    when i bring my fan there for repair, it's in a "be-headed" state.
    parang pinyang tinggalan ng ugat at ng korona.

    for around the house lubrication ATF in a needle-tipped squeeze bottle is the best

    as for silicone sprays i avoid those. i got various silicone lubes from low-viscosity silicone oils (like condom lube) to medium like treadmill lube. to greases. i apply them w/ cotton swabs or similar
    because it isnt a lubricant so it will suck as a lubricant.

    they market it as a lubricant and people use it all the time as a lubricant, but end up dissolving the grease on bearings and bushings instead LOL

    "misleading marketing."
    "anything to make a buck."

    but perhaps it got this sort-of reputation, because it loosened stuck bolts and joints.
    folks then made the mistaken conclusion that it was a lubricant, "dahil pinadulas ng WD40 yung stuck-up bolts ko".
    and so the legend grew.
