studs and bolts.

<My experience with Never Seize (brand name, found in automotive stores) has been nothing but positive as far as keeping the stainless steel and galvanized bolts able to be removed later (even years later).  As mentioned, I found that it will get all over my  <hands no matter how careful I am.  Removing it from hands later on is done with waterless hand cleaner (contains lanolin as well as other stuff) which I also find at automotive supply store.  (Use this before washing your hands with water.)  This hand cleaner <also works well on clothes BUT it must be applied and worked in to remove the gray grease BEFORE water is applied to the clothes.  (Once the clothes go through a washing machine, the stain will be on it for the life of the clothes.)

##  Disposable latex or vinyl  gloves work, and also provide for full finger dexterity.  My problem is, I sometimes forget to put em on !    Typ 50 or 100 disposable gloves in a box.  I use em for never seize, and also when silver plating copper strap +
tubing,  detailing cars, garden work,  and also working on vehicles..or anything else you are likely to get your fingers mucked up on.   Then when done, pluck them off, folding then inside out, toss em.
