I bought two of the 4 oz. bottles -- one clear and one red. I couldn't figure out the difference from what was posted, so I decided to try them both. Thanks for the tip.

I found the liquid at http://www.skygeek.com/70104-l.html for about $3
less than MSC Direct and their shipping is about $2 less than MSCDirect.
It looks like this stuff is great for machining too. I'm getting a
couple of bottles of the liquid, one for the modeling table downstairs
and one for the shop. At $7.75 a bottle, you can't beat it.
