After the house fire a year ago, they started this week to demolish what was left and tidy the site for the new house, I had a lot of power and hand tools some going back to my grandad, so as the digger was clearing it away I was noisying about, complete with new HiVis jacket looking for anything left, I found one large adjustable spanner, one monkey wrench, (grandads) a welders plate clamp and a pillar drill vice, still bolted to the table, well bits of the table, as you can imagine after all the heat and a year outside they were in a bit of a state, being a Yorkshireman, I decided to clean them up, so after a fair bit of research on the net, I went with the Cider vinegar route, after a two day soak, and a quick clean with a rotary wire brush, they are like new, very impressed.

I've never heard of the cider vinegar method.

brick acid (Muriatic acid) or caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) do the job rapidly if needed - but nothing beats the blast cabinet with some fine crushed glass media

Well obviously we all have a compressor and a blast cabinet, :shock: so that would have been my first choice, as I said, I have done a fair bit of research and the acids you mention while they will remove rust they chemically change the surface of the metal, which can cause problems later on. Nos
