I'm confused (post #214909)

Getting ready for spring.  Spot sprayed my lawn with WD-40 and changed the oil in my car using 2-4-D.  Now what do I do with this 10-W-40??

Use it on a salad.  Balsamic vinegar will work best with the weight you have.  Years ago I use to do my own oil changes and bought my oil in quart bottles at the supermarket.  The woman in line behind me who was obviously not American based on her accent asked me what type of salad I was going to put the oil on.

But should I use the new "long life" stuff?  And will it do any good for my knees?  They're what are giving me trouble and might be due for an overhaul.

 The lube won't fix your knees. But I can carve you some replacements {installation extra] from wood, or maybe some of the deer bones littering the yard. You'd be surprised how well some might fit.

If you want the carved wood route I will use treated wood [TYP] or some type of cedar if you are an organic nut.  Which ever you choose is extra.

I have a few, select, well aged pieces of CCA  SYP left.

The Stradivarius of  hand crafted joint replacement material. Understandably it will be an upcharge.

Install Zerks on each knee and keep them lubed at all times.
