We use bulb lube on every bulb we install. It works great. The only place I have seen it is at the check out lines at Menards. It is a little orange container that simialar in size to Carmex lip balm. It costs about 3 or 4 dollars, but it is well worth it.

Bring back brass-base bulbs! (Say that five times real fast!!!)

Hmmm... "Bulb Lube" sounds interesting- I don't know how many times in my old vehicles that I've had to use pliers to get out the broken 1157's due to seizure in the socket.

As for the KOPR-SHIELD(R), there are certain applications where it is truly indispensible, though I would steer clear of using it as an anti-seize for bulbs. I see that they also sell it in one-gallon cans- WOW! That's more than one or two terminal and conduit-thread coatings...!


No wire bias here- I'm standing on neutral ground.

KOPR-SHIELD(R) is a suitable product for compliance with 300.6(A)

You mean like a light bulb?
Thanks, after a long week I needed that.

Actually I meant ... aw crap you know what I meant. De-ox runs when it gets hot. What about the other stuff?

Thanks, I got the stuff at Menards, which I'll try. The ingredients are mineral oil, polybutene, trimethylolpropane, trisostearate, isopropyl myristate, hydroxy stearate acid. Any chemists in the group?

Vaseline is good stuff.
