the candle trick for getting off stuck lugs nuts. But really, don't you think you'd just go get some penetrating oil?

As always, skip the first minute. Thanks Mike!


  1. This method will work where penetrating oil will fail. If you got a rusted bolt in a blind hole, and you can't afford to have it break off, this is definitely the way to go.

    Side note: The best penetrating oil I have ever come across is a 50/50 mixture of acetone and ATF. Has one drawback though. It is extremely flammable, so you cannot use it in conjunction with heating with a torch.

    1. I've heard of that mixture, and posted about it back in 2010
