Thanks Bruce. I just stumbled on a site called "cosmoline direct". They sell the cosmoline I'm looking for....they refer to it as cosmoline rust-veto 342 (industrial grade). I think I will stock up per your suggestion. Have a great 4th!Midway USA and Brownells both used to sell it.
If you can find any, get it while you can, the manufacturer is no longer making it.
Packard, thanks also for the 411. I think this cosmoline Rust-veto 342 is a newer version (formulation) of the WWII cosmoline.Is there some historical reason you need the old Cosmoline? The newer formulations are superior and easier to remove.
Note: Have not used either product. I am going strictly by what I've read or have been told. Genuine Cosmoline is supposed to be difficult to remove.
