Forgot to take before pictures. My apologies.
Let me start by saying I’m in lust with Evaporust. I have an electrolysis set up and have used vinegar for years for rust removal. For light to moderate rust, Evaporust rocks. Seriously, I want to take long, hot showers with Evaporust. I want to walk along the beach with it and look deeply into its eyes. I want to swap spit with it.
A 12-hour soak removed all the surface rust, even the on the cross pin. It didn’t leave the heavy coat of black oxide you tend to get with electrolysis or vinegar. Just a quick wipe and a spray with WD40.
Started out with a maroon 3M scrub to remove the surface grime and rust. About 75% of the japanning is still intact. Kramerized the tote and knob.
However, the sole is badly pitted. I hated to do it, but I ended up lapping the sole with 80 grit aluminum oxide. After extensive lapping, I still have a trail of pitting along the right side of the sole. Toe, heel, and mouth are all in plane. My question, good enuff?
I keep telling myself it’s a scrub, not a joiner. Would you leave it as is, or go for a longer shoulder and forearm work-out? Enquiring minds want to know……
