Rust removal, new way

Anyone ever try this product?

http://www.safestrustremover.com/default.asp

It seems obvious - chemically remove the rust instead of converting it! The beauty is that it minimizes removal of parts as it can be sprayed or showered on, as shown in the pics. Furthermore, it doesn't damage rubber, paint, glass and, I think, plastic.

Of course, you can dip anything small or removable in it but how about the bottoms of doors to get into all the seams!

You can spray it on anything including all those rusty bolts and other areas requiring spot treatment.

Showering and recirculating the liquid over anything large is very appealing. I'm thinking of spraying the liquid through the frame and then over it before treating it with Waxoyl and paint.

Naval jelly works-sort of. I like sand blasting for quick gratification.

Someone should do a taste test of these products for D90. I would, but I am drunk and won't remember this in the morning...first night in a couple weeks I have not wrenched....kind of nice...

I did. It worked ok for superficial/surface rust but not for anything else.

Did you go to the Solihull Society meeting at the brew pub in Westminster? Hopefully when you got home you remembered that peeing on things makes them rust; not the other way around!

My rust and grease removing "Jeffrey Dahmer" bucket solution goes like this:
for each two gallons of water add one can Red Devil lye. Add the lye to the water and not the other way! adding tsp helps the degreasing action.
Use an old battery charger to provide a low charge. I use one that has a 2 amp setting. Now don't clip the charger right to your parts. Use some old jumper cables and let them hang over the edge of your container. The fizzing action can corrode the connections, so you want to keep them dry. Thus the "extension cord". Connect the positive lead to the part(s) and the negative to a sacrificial hunk of steel that is also submerged in the solution. Place the parts in the solution and the sacrificial anode and apply power. You will soon see fizzing and bubbling. This is converting the rust back to iron and the caustic lye is stripping paint and grease. Check every hour or so or leave overnight. The reaction tends to be stronger on the side toward the anode, so it may be necessary to shift things every once in a while.
This is all best done outdoors. Warmer temps increase effectiveness.
Not a speedy method, but outcome is outstanding.
Parts must be submerged, so container size is important as well as firmness of connections. I have actually bolted wires to parts to be sure the connections stayed tight. The more you use this method, the more proficient you will become.
