To use as penetrant on heavily rusted nuts and bolts, spray it on, let it sit for a while, then try to turn the nut or bolt. Once it breaks free, work the thread back and forth, spraying more Nutcracker on as required. Use it the same way to tap and die.

For use in a lathe, dilute at a rate of 20%, 4 parts water to one part Nutcracker. As Nutcracker does not contain vegetable or animal based products, it is much more stable and less likely "to go off" producing malodorous odours.
