No offense Ken, but, mechanical clock and watch parts?

we're talking bicycle parts here. That said, I never use WD-40. I can't stand the stuff and have heard it contains water. Not sure about that but I don't care. If I want to clean something, kerosene or soap and water. If I want to lubricate something, light machine oils or good grease. For what it's worth.
