I found a product on Amazon called Eezox, Is this the same stuff?

Thanks for everyone's great suggestions. The Craftsman tools they sell today are garbage made in China. You can buy the same tools at Harbor Freight. These Craftsman tools are probably 30 years old or more. I ended up getting pretty much everything in the workshop I wanted.

And if you have rust put tools between paper towels and soak with white vinegar for 24 hours. Rust will be gone!

If you like vintage things, try this.

50/50 mix of kerosene and turpentine. Dampen a rag, wipe your tools and put them away. It's an old machinist's trick.
