That is what you meant, isn't it?
Of course !! Why is there something else it was useful for? :?: :wink: :-D
I use it on compression joints (plumbing) to allow them to be tightened without binding and release easier.
Also on woodscrews and nuts & bolts, depending where they are used, screws wind in a lot easier but even better are more easily removed. On cars I use Coppaslip in preference.
1001 uses.

Not a good idea to apply it to camera lenses though, the trick there is to apply it to a UV filter kept aside for such applications.

No mist here this morning.

Not a trace of mist. Clear night.
Had a look at 06:30. No mist.
Then 07:30. No mist and still dark.
Fell asleep, woke at 9:00 and this is what it was like. Bins, crap cars but mist conspicuous only by it's absence.

This morning, when I went to collect mum (for her shoulder to be stabbed) the River Kennet had a few wisps of mist, so I got a couple of photos.

This time of year is almost perfectly summed up by the famous poetic line of John Keats.

"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness"

and to a lesser extent by the nicely named album from Robin Trower

"long misty days"
