Kerosene replacement





I have a client that makes horseshoe nails.  They have been in business since
1881 and are the major manufacturers of the product.  The equipment that they
use was manufacturered between 1890-1920.  The facility is very clean and
modern.  They use 1006 and 1008 grade steel, which is fed into the machine, goes
through a series of roll dies that shapes the metal into the nail, including the
head.  They use a 75% Dyed K-1 Kerosene, 25% Neatsfoot Oil mixture as a
lubricant.  The lubricant is squirted manually on the roll dies, which are
located down the front of the machines, as needed.

Question:  does anyone have an experience with alternatives to this lubricant?
They have tried 3 products from Richards Apex, but claim that within a week the
lubricants get dirty and the material clogs in the machine.   Any suggestions
would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
