Electrolytic Rust Removal

Postby Kat » Sat May 09, 2009 3:11 pm

As corrosion is something many of us are all too familiar with, my 'Rust removal with SCIENCE!' thread over on 'popular-classics.org' may be of interest :)

I've just updated the thread with a few more photographs of various stages of the process being applied to bits of HC.

Great cheap solution to an onging problem ! I must try it out on some of the more delicate removable bits that wont take to kindly to my usual method of removal - Angle grinder with ZIP wheel. Or just angle grinder and cut it all out :twisted:

Looks an easy way to clean up those rusted, easy to remove parts.
May give it a go with some bits and pieces.
Thanks for passing on the tip.

hello if you do need to use a rust convertor treatment where you cant soak the part overnight machinemart do a litre bottle of rust treatment thats a lot like jenolite for £4 item no 059930250 which is a lot cheaper than jenolite

just a little update if you havent read the topic yet a couple of pics showing my rear axle being treated, basically salt water solution 12 volt charger 10 amps over night dip and a wipe over with rust converter after the axle was taken out and hosed off, dont worry i took the half shaft out and plugged axle casing too clean seperatley as it has the rear wheel bearing on it
