Anyone know where I can buy a tub of Clover Valve Grinding Compound? I'm looking for a container of 12oz or so. I've tried all the auto parts stores in my area, but no one has it.

You can get it online , I found a few places that carry it. http://www.wttool.com/c/53130085p
http://www.globalstoresgroup.com/page/industrial-supplies/ctgy/loctite-machining-compounds

Also from looking on Froogle, Ace hardware, and Advance Auto parts have grinding compounds.

And it turns out Loctite bought the Clover brand, so they are under the Loctite brand now.

Thanks for the info! I'll be using it for those hard to break screws. I just don't know which grit to get. Anyone have any hints? I've been using some generic stuff from someone else's tool box with no label on it, so I'm not sure how coarse it is.

I would ask someone at your nearest auto part store, granted they havnt been replaced with morons like at radio shack. From personal experience, a torch usually breaks bolts for me pretty well, as for screws, im not so sure. I remember working with my dad trying to get a lug off our car, we broke 3 Craftsman sockets, and 2 Craftsman wrenches. Turns out all we needed to do was use alittle heat and it usually loostens bolts up.

Ah, well in thats much different. I was going to suggest some stuff my dad used at work on some of the presses and cranes to break some of the bolts, but I dont think you can use it on an aircraft.

If you have access to Liquid dye penetrant (LPI) gear or know someone in the NDI/NDT trades. Use the flourescent penetrant as a lube on seized hardware. It is designed to flow into the smallest of cracks, so it really works as a thread lube.

I think that most of your respondents don't understand that you are using the lapping compound on the the end of your apex tip to get a better grip on the screw heads. While their suggestions for heat and penetrant are good ideas, they just aren't applicable to your situation.

I'm holding a 16 oz. can of 600 grit. Part number is 4A 51804. The side of the can lists grits from 36 up to 1200. 400, 500, and 600 are listed as very fine.

800, 1000, and 1200 are extremely fine. I would suggest something in the 400 grit area.
