    if in small containers, might be a good yard sale item - or, offered for sale to quilters or on home sewing forum sites

    My husband is always taking my sewing machine oil to use on his guns. Works great.

    Well David, There you have it. Get sheep to mow your range land.. Shear them yourself using the oil on your clippers. Spin yarn using the oil on your old spinning wheel in the parlor. Oil up your loom to keep it from overheating as you weave your cloth. Oil up the sewing machine and make yourself some long johns. Oil your fingers so you won't rip your long johns when you are scratching like a dog with the mange because they itch. After all this, you will probably be on the second little can of oil. Or you could oil your driveway to keep the dust down. That would take care of the rest of them.. Just glad to help another country boy. Tell Tina Unk says Hey.
