I'll throw one in here. I use a combo 50% acetone, and 50% tranny fluid, as a lubricant on rusty bolts. Works good,  have not heard of anything better yet.

Ha Ha.... should have read before posting... duhhh..

I can hardly get those to work for me either. Winter has kicked my ass too and i'm sick of it. It's supposed to snow here again tomorrow. 4 to 6 inches was the last i heard.

What I have found is dim lights and mine wants to be 15 foot away for best results I hardly make a straight cut without it.
