Hi all
Has any one tried to derust using mollases, I saw an article on derusting using malasses( forget comming to a sticky end Ron) I am going to give it a try, I don't think it is a very quick process, but it's cheap.
I also saw a method using a galvanised bucket and a battery charger, any one tried it, any information greatfully received.

George, you trying to sweeten me up?
I have not heard of using molasses, and a sticky end is exactly what I would expect there.
I have been tempted to try the soda and battery charger idea ever since I saw it in a GW somewhile ago, try looking up back numbers. It appears to only work in 'line of sight' which is in a direct line between the anode and the tool. You will have to turn it round now and again to get at it behind the ears!
If you can rescue a vintage tool then this will be the icing on the cake!

Hi George how bad is the rust. I use Citric acid to do mine. It can be brought from the chemist but they may ask what it is for.

Phosphoric acis is a rust eater, you can get it from most good car body and paint suppliers. Otherwise electrolysis works, and i dont think it is line of sight, but i do think you have to do the x axis then the y axis to get best results.
