Ha anyone ever used Milk of Magnesia for anti-seize,,??

PostBy: DJ54 On: Sun Oct 21, 2012 9:11 pm

After having a time getting some of the screws out of the shell on my Florence stove, I knew I'd be using some sort of anti-seize when they go back in. Talking with a buddy of mine today who is an aircraft tech., and he suggested Milk of Magnesia. I though he was kidding. He said turbine engine manufacturers tell in their service manuals to dip fasteners in Milk of Magnesia as an anti-seize agent.

I did a Google search, and got over 2 million hits on the subject. One thread another aircraft tech, said the same thing. Said they used when he was in the service on the afterburners of the sircraft he serviced.

One other thread stated to use the unflavored, plain MOM. Guess you're never too old, to learn something new..!!

Hmm. read up on it and it dries to a white powder that is not affected by heat. never thought of that but it does dry out to be magnesium hydroxide and then doesn't start to degrade until around 650 F. neat.

It's prolly one of those gov't contractor thingies..... :?

a lil tube of anti-seize cost about 10 pages of requisition requests, four engineering spec updates, six design reviews, 20 weeks of time and a price tag of $2,567.30. :mad:

some MOM is picked up during lunch hour, cost $3.95 and is used to replenish the first aid kit!! :D

LOL.., Yeah, well it's not the idea of the cost of never-seize, I've got more than several containers of it, and different kinds. I use it on my farm machinery when I do repairs, because more then likely. I'll be the next guy tearing into it. The next stop for my stuff is usually the scrap yard. Just thought it was unique that they use the MOM in this application.

So reckon' I'll try some MOM n some of the screws, and some of the copper base on others. Maybe a few years down the road I'll see if there is any difference..!!

About 7 bucks, and it will last most a lifetime.
I use it on wheel studs, I've built quite a few engines,
motorcycles, and I've had the same jar for like a hundred years.
The beauty of it, is that when you go to remove something,
not only is it not frozen, but it is usually still lubed.
So removal is easier.
Also easier assembling... ;)
