- Sep 17, 2013I 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.On Sep 17, 2013, at 3:16 PM, Joe V31JP wrote:
