Sheep Lanolin

Hey guys, does anyone know where I can get some sheep lanolin? A few years ago I got some electrical work done on the boat and the guy gave me some to put on battery terminals to stop corrosion. He’s gone out of business now so can’t find get any off him.

Useful stuff, no Kiwi jokes please

     We always had issues with removing craypot anodes when they were worn out. Way back, of course, they were just wired in. PITA, often didn't make good contact. So someone came up with the idea of welding a bolt to the steel pot bottom, fit an anode with a hole through it. Very qucickly found 5/16 " bolts weren't big enough. Went to 1/2". Not too hard to get off ifthey were still wet, but dry, just seize up. You'd shear the bolt. Some went to stainless bolts, but pots were expensive enough as it was . Obviously you couldn't use a petroleum based grease. So I tried some lanolin, really thick brown stuff. Worked a treat, you could always get the anode off and didn't bother the crays.

Bunnings does Lanotec

 Bunnings has Lanotec products (lanolin).  I am not sure if Lanotec does something like you are after (I have only used their liquid products) but might be worth a look.

Thanks for the replies guys. I’m not looking for the spray can ones. The stuff I had was like vasoline, you could smear a thick layer on.
