Rusty tools

Hi Dave H. So happy to see the process after finding nothing on the
Urls. But, want to inquire if this might also work for taking old
rust from antique cast iron cookware. There’s always lots of that
around being tossed from lack of a way to clean it well and that’s a
huge shame when it should be considered a treasure.

Thanks for the help. Pat

Cast iron cook ware…my mother always said treat it first by oiling
it and baking it at a low heat for an hour. If something is already
rusted, scrub it off with stainless steel pads, oil and bake.

Hi Pat; I don’t see why it shouldn’t work. Might take a bit longer
considering all the surface area, but it wouldn’t hurt to try. The
only expense is the battery charger. Might drop in on a few garage
sales and look for a used charger while you’re picking up more cast
iron cookware. By the way, I like to break in new cast iron cookware
with an oxy-acetylene torch and a can of peanut oil. Makes a lot of
smoke, but it’s faster than the usual way.
