I'd try mixing it with something other than acetone. Acetone flashes off too fast, the whole point of kroil is to stay wet and "creep" into the fastener over time. I'd think the acetone mix would dry too fast. And acetone will also damage any seals
it comes in contact with. I'm sure anything else would too, but perhaps not as aggressively. Maybe MEK? I'm sure kroil's "recipe" has been carefully formulated to provide maximum penetration while not flashing too quickly. But I bet if you played around you could replicate it...
