Ballistol was originally formulated in the early 1900s to be a multi-purpose oil for soldiers: one oil for maintaining both metallic and wooden parts of their rifles, and for treating their leather goods. It turned out to be such a versatile oil that its use spread rapidly. It cleans, lubricates and protects metals, wood, leather (except suede), rubber and hard plastics. It never thickens. It is slightly alkaline, so it neutralizes the acid from sweaty hands and tanned leather. Its penetrating qualities make it useful for freeing frozen fasteners.

These properties make it ideal for protecting and maintaining garden tools. Wooden handles will not turn gummy after being treated with the oil, moving parts will be lubricated, blades will be kept rust-free and leather workboots will remain supple. It is non-toxic and biodegradable. Itís the sort of thing that once you try it you just keep finding more uses for it.

Available in a CFC-free aerosol and as individually-wrapped wipes.

Note: some multi-purpose penetrating oils have a rather durable odor which can be off-putting. In this regard, Ballistol is a welcome alternative. It's smell is not offensive, and it dissipates very quickly. For something with so many uses in so many situations, this can be important.

If you need to remove rust from your garden tools we suggest our Wonderbar rust erasers. Available in three grades, they are solid 3-1/4 x 2 x 3/4" blocks of rubber compound embedded throughout with silicon carbide abrasive.

Incredible Rust Removal
Reviewed By:   (Houston, TX) 
I bought these in a set, one of each grade. I tried the coarse block on a completely rusted Craftsman chisel I got secondhand, and it was bright steel within minutes. I tried it on a second chisel and had the same result. Now I'm searching for any other neglected tools to work the magic on.

Sandflex Hand Blocks

These blocks work great for removing rust from tool surfaces and polishing to a mirror finish. I purchase all three blocks course, medium and fine and am very pleased with their performance. I will most likely order more when these wear out.

I just expected better results while using on some tools made of different metals ie.... Stainless steel, aluminum, brass, etc.. trying to remove light stains and corrosion.

Product was shipped fast. The blocks are just what I needed for my project and worked just great. It cleaned up a rusty plane in no time at all.
