Woot woot! Okay okay, I understand your point, deep breath. A simple "no, those two won't work" would have sufficed, thank you. It would have been much more helpful to get an explanation as to why they wouldn't work than a rant on my lack of knowledge in the subject. Like, those oils aren't light, coolants, etc.
I did a bit more research on my own and discovered this out. I also read more about the kerosene tip. Thanks for your help in leading me to that search. But, if you had never heard of dipping blades in kerosene then running it against your own horse, I doubt you wouldn't be a little apprehensive the first time it was mentioned too.
I was able to come by some oil yesterday, but I like posting these types of questions simply to broaden my knowledge and get a feel for how others are doing things, or not doing things. It could be a lifesaver in a pinch. Thanks for the informative posts Saddlebag, horselovinguy.
