      I use LPS 1 for fine tools, like Micrometers and calipers, and other stuff.
      Works well in Georgia USA--hot and humid, or cold and humid, but always humid.

      It leaves a silky smooth coating.

      LPS 3 leaves a waxy coat like Boeshield--good for difficult areas.

      Thank you for pointing out the T9. I will order a kit I found for $9.99
      of the rust removal & preventer. I normally use
      the electrolysis, but there are a couple impressive reviews. Especially
      regarding bike chains, a constant maintenance
      chore here with 4 bicycles. Also, I have used the camphor blocks here
      and that reminded me I am out. We use
      camphor in baby oil for mosquito repellent.
