    Saw this You Tube video on how to add air pressure back into an aerosol can that's gone flat, but still has some product left in it.
    Worked like a charm.

    WD-40.....I always thought they just made a terribly cheap piece-O'-crap delivery system for the stuff. I don't remember ever having the problem with any other aerosol cans? Carb cleaner, spray lithium grease, Brakleen, PB Blaster, Deep Creep etc.

    I'll give it a shot though, tired of paying what they want for 6oz of lousy lube and only getting to use 4oz of it!

    Whew! Nice save! Nambu came *that* close to a lawsuit from the Darwin Award winner's surviving kin.

    I think WD-40 works just a little to well as a penetrate, as it certainly loosens up the spray can seals.

    I save myself the headache by buying WD40 in gallon cans, and using a little manual pump sprayer. Aerosol cans are for the birds in a lot of cases.
