    I just finished wiping down my knifes and guns with gun oil, where I live it gets extremely humid and we all know what moisture does to metal. I try to do this 3 or 4 times a year but to be honestly I'm happy if I do it 2 times a year just because life gets hectic and I'm very good at procrastinating. I just wasn't there to remind anyone like me to keep your tools maintained. I hope everybody is having a wonderful week so far.

    Extremely important to maintain your weapons and tools
    I know I left an air rifle in the garage and forgot to oil it first, when I had it out of the bag a few months later the barrel and silencer was pitted. I was not happy but it was my fault

    Ya I know what you mean Fushion. I have a bullet loading press, and it got wet from a water leak in my house. I didn't take care of it as I should have. It had rust pits on it, so I had to fix it after. It's a lot easier to maintain something that's kept well,instead of having to fix something that neglected

    Hey guys, what KIND of oil is best for oiling different metals. I know that for guns there is arasol cans of gun oil, but what about blades? Or other tools. Can you use natural oils? Like olive oil, vegtable oil, coconut, etc.
