Nola, thanks for the comparisons. BTW, I remember an "old school" method that my grandad used to do on the farm in WV... he'd cut up potatoes & put them in a bucket of water, then submerge whatever rusted piece into the bucket (and, if I remember correctly, put a lid on the bucket - can't really remember, this was 25+ years ago). Then come back in a week or 2, pull out the parts, dry them off, and they'd be good as new...nolaegghead said:Navel jelly is an acid - I think phosphoric - not toxic, it's in your coca colas. That works too. Mechanical removal takes some elbow grease but is how I usually remove rust. This method is cool because it only removes the rust, and no unoxidized iron.Hillbilly-Hightech said:pretty cool - but how does this process compare to say, using Naval Jelly or some other rust remover?
FWIW, when I did my high-temp burnout, I too noticed that my now "clean" DFMT was rusty - I just took a wire brush & brushed off as much of the rust as I could, and sprayed PAM on it like probe1957 did.
