For the great advice on the home made penetrating oil. I just removed a cleanout plug in a cast iron waste line that I don't think has been touched since it was installed over 60 years ago.

ATF, mineral spirits and acetone.

I had to pull pretty hard on a 3/4" ratchet, but when it let go you could see the oil had gotten to the other end of the threads.

BTW, a 1-3/8" 12-pt socket fits over a 1-1/4" square plug with a few light taps.

Nice to hear it worked. I've been using atf and acetone as well, as I read about it here.

Made some and gave some to a friend (I had a few extra PERFECT bottles forthe mixture).

He called some time later and asked if I had any more.
